Interactive Concerts for All Ages ~ Workshops & Lessons
"Wanda is a weaver of music and magic." - Seth Bernard, Earthwork Music

A lifelong love of music and history shines through in family concerts performed by Wanda Degen. Based in Lansing, Michigan, she sings and plays songs and tunes from all over the world including Appalachia, the British Isles and the Great Lakes region. Her repertoire spans the ages combining traditional, contemporary and original selections. Listeners will hear unusual arrangements of some familiar classics as well as some ancient, uncommon gems. Participation is encouraged with opportunities for sing-alongs, clap-alongs, and the creation of a volunteer rhythm band.

Wanda performs with autoharp, mountain dulcimer, and hammered dulcimer. Concerts include a brief history of the instruments and of the songs, and can be based on a variety of themes described on the programs page.

"...engaging for all ages. Very appropriate and heartfelt." - Michigan's Great Outdoors Culture Tour host
