- Iselda de Narbonne is a poet and musician. Here, you’ll find a somewhat haphazard collection of texts, documentation, class notes, and music for voice, harp and lyre.

Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org for rehearsal times, details, and general questions.

- Faye de Trees is a clothier, dancer, and wayward bard who loves nothing more than the magic moments when the busy world of today falls away and we are transported into the past. She seeks these by creating spaces, crafting experiences, and bringing teaching and learning to as many as possible. She is less effective at remembering to take photos or sitting at the machine that turns ideas into electrons to share, but when she does those musings are found at TastefullyTimeless.com.
