Madrona proudly presents Peia's "Night of Song" Tour, Featuring: Liron Meyuhas on percussion & Rob Taylor on double bass
"Peia's voice soars like the wind
as she sings a love letter to our Earth
and an ode to humanity."

Recently returned from several months studying in the Gaeltachts (Irish speaking regions) of Western Ireland, this tour Oíche na nAmhrán, will focus on the songs and stories Peia gathered during her studies, as well as some old favorites.
Peia Luzzi is an American born song collector, writer and multi-instrumentalist based in the mountains of Southern Oregon. Like water from a deep well, she draws inspiration from her ancestral roots of Celtic and Old World European folk music. With the voice of a lark, Peia dances nimbly from Child Ballads and 17th C. Gaelic laments, to Waulking Songs, and Bulgarian mountain calls. She has traveled extensively over the past 10 years to uncover melodies wrinkled and wise with time, laboring to honor their language and stories, while bringing a piece of herself to each song she carries.
A powerful voice in the rising global community of people who are committed to restoring a balanced relationship with the Earth, Peia expresses her holistic vision and passion through her music, educational workshops and advocacy for social and environmental rights groups.
