Laura MacKenzie


When Laura takes the stage for a solo performance, she brings a fascinating array of wind-powered instruments, including her lovely voice, to the fore. Moving from one instrument to another, Laura contributes diverse and rich sonorities while communicating a vast repertoire of traditional music. Her performance is supported by the grace, warmth and humor, the craft, knowledge and lore gleaned over a lifetime of music-making and study.
