Tethera is the name for a group of Cambridge, Kitchener and Hamilton musicians; Paul Morris (Concertina, Melodeon and Vocals), Brad McEwen (Cittern and Vocals) and Brian Sinclair (Mandocello, Guitar, Mandolin and various other unique stringed instruments) and Gwen Potter (Vocals & Viola D’ Amore).
The repertoire consists of mainly traditional English dance tunes and songs. However, other things have been known to creep in from Ireland, France, Brittany, Belgium as well as Canada.
They have been playing together for many years and bring a relaxed and informal style to their performances. Four of the Tethera members will be performing in the workshops.
