Elizabeth Gaver – medieval fiddle, rebec, voice
Leah Stuttard – bray harp, voice, bell
Elizabeth has performed and recorded on baroque violin with leading ensembles in Norway and the US. She is a member of the Cherry Trio in California and participated in the project, “Nodebog” performing music documented in fiddlers’ notebooks from the 18th century in Norway.
In addition, she plays hardingfele and violin with the traditional music ensemble Feleboga, performing both Norwegian traditional music and American old-time music. The band has performed concerts and taught dance workshops in Germany, Iceland, Poland, Thailand and the US. Elizabeth Gaver has earned degrees from Stanford University, The Juilliard School, and has studied medieval performance practice with Thomas Binkley at Indiana University. She has written her University of Oslo hovedfag thesis, “The (Re)construction of music for bowed stringed instruments in Norway in the Middle Ages”.
Leah Stuttard comes from an industrial town in a particularly wet part of the North West of England. She has played the medieval harp for around 25 years and sung for a lot longer. After studies at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Switzerland, she has worked with many major names including Jordi Savall and Ensemble Unicorn. She is incredibly grateful that her career has taken her around the world, from Mexico to Russia. She first started working with the Italian ensemble Micrologus in 2002 and continues to add a certain Anglo-Saxon je-ne-sais-quoi to their performances. As a soloist, she performs English medieval music, with Vivien Ellis (Sinfonye, Dufay Collective) she plays English ballads and sings Gregorian chant, and with Danish/Swedish singer Agnethe Christensen (Sequentia) she explores more Northern repertoires like Scandinavian folk hymns. Currently she is working on a doctorate, investigating the creative input of musicians working with medieval music today. She’s completed six different pilgrimages to Canterbury, Norwich and Walsingham via Bury St Edmunds, twice to Monte Sant’Angelo and twice to Santiago de Compostela.
