She has traveled extensively to uncover melodies wrinkled and wise with time, laboring faithfully to revive their language, stories and original essence.

She carries melodies wrinkled and wise with time, laboring faithfully to revive their language, stories and original essence. As a song preserver Peia has gathered songs from ancient traditions that span across the globe, from the mountains of Bulgaria to the shores of Ireland, touching upon the wisdom and trials of the Native peoples of North and South America and preserving the enchantment of medieval chant and Indian Raga. She has traveled extensively to uncover melodies wrinkled and wise with time, laboring faithfully to revive their language, stories and original essence. 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 indigenous and environmental rights groups. Gifted with a broad, soaring vocal range and crystalline tone, Peia’s song pierces the heart with bell like clarity. She sings with depth and beauty, accompanying herself with charango, harmonium, and guitar. Her revolving collaborative ensemble weaves rich vocal harmonies, cello, an eclectic array of percussion, and flamenco guitar. Peia’s performances offer authentic re-imaginings of traditional musical treasures along with a stunning repertoire of her original songs. Born in the back hills of Connecticut, Peia spent most of her childhood playing in the forests and hiding out in tree tops. In 2002 she moved to Boston where she attended New England Conservatory of Music on a generous scholarship and received extensive training in western classical voice and opera, vocal pedagogy, composition, and improvisation. “My journey with world folksong traditions began many years ago while studying at New England Conservatory in Boston. Much to the dismay of my Opera professors, I found myself enthralled with the alluring beauty and mystery of traditional folk music. This fascination, along with a bit of old Irish wanderlust, poised me for a journey that led me to seek a lost culture and reconnect with the songs of my ancestors in ancient Europe.” In 2012 Peia released her first solo album The Dance of Devotion – a profound collection of poetic love songs. Her second release Four Great Winds – a timeless journey through traditional and original sacred song was self released in May 2013 and picked up by Sounds True for global release in 2015.Following the initial release of ‘Four Great Winds’ Peia gained international notoriety and requests for performances in Europe, Australia, Bali, Brazil and Canada. Her music has taken her around the world and sparked collaborations with many world class artists including: legendary poet and Rumi scholar Coleman Barks, author, mythologist & storyteller Michael Meade, Iranian tar master Ali Ghamsari and Sephardic song keeper, oud & guitar virtuoso Shai Shriki. Peia currently splits her time between touring and the lush, wild hills of Southern OR where she wildcrafts herbal remedies, sings with Wild Honey – an all women’s world music trio and teaches Song of the Ancients – voice cultivation and ancestral songline tracing. Fusing her knowledge of Vocal Pedagogy (The Science of the Voice) with the ancient meditative practice of Nada Yoga, she imparts upon her students the tools to harness the natural beauty and resonance of the voice . peiasong.com Prospect Rock Permaculture is Vermont's oldest permaculture organization - and has been actively creating ecological culture for 20 years.

Live Gig Shots added 17 new photos to the album: Ellis Paul and Vance Gilbert.

Legion Arts and CSPS Hall have been celebrating 25 years of bringing exceptional musical talent to Cedar Rapids, Iowa this season. Part of that celebration is to team up perennial favorites for one of a kind concerts (as well as bringing in solo acts). While Ellis has played CSPS Hall just about every year now, Vance hasn't been back since just after the 2008 flood. It's also been years since these long time friends and collaborators have appeared on stage together.

The result was a unique "living room" setting where Ellis and Vance each took turns doing songs, reminiscing about their friendship, and paring up for a few numbers. It was a wonderfully intimate format that delighted the full house, and gave insight into the relationship between these two highly talented singer/songwriters.

Seeing two musicians who genuinely love each other was a treat in itself. The stories and inside jokes would likely never be heard outside of this type of concert. The quality of the music Ellis and Vance provided also had a special aura, as though they were as intent on entertaining each other as they were the audience. I forget how many years it's been since they shared a stage, but you could tell they were very happy to be doing so, because of that little something extra in the air that could be witnessed, even if they were just staring at each other for a few seconds while thinking of something to say.

As if having two stellar folk musicians on stage at once wasn't enough, Iowan Dan Bern joined Ellis and Vance on stage for a rousing singalong of "This Land Is Your Land". I could say that was the highlight of the show, and be done. But it wasn't. That song supercharged the atmosphere in CSPS Hall, cranking up the creative energy a couple of notches, so that the rest of the show was Folk Music Nirvana.

It was the kind of show that could leave a person thinking "OK...WTF comes next?". Well, in the case of CSPS Hall, there's other 25th Anniversary concerts coming up by Carrie Newcomer, Kathy Mattea, John Gorka/Lisa Kaplansky, Tom Paxton and more. Visit legionarts.org for details.
