Miradow ...

is the melding of two diverse musicians, Jessica Madow and Donna Lang, into a unique mélange of eclectic fun.

 

Jessica Madow hails from Los Angeles and brings her love of all things keyboard (harpsichord, piano, and squeezebox) into the mix. She has performed with the Detroit and Windsor Symphonies and numerous chamber ensembles around the country, and has accompanied and directed choirs in California, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Her love of folk and ethnic music led her to the hammered dulcimer and squeezebox, playing at the Irish Festival of Los Angeles and with several klezmer groups. She‘s been featured with the Lehigh University Choral Arts and the Princeton Singers in a piece written by Stephen Sametz for hammered dulcimer and choir. Jessica was a past PA Rural Arts Alliance Grant recipient, and has done many workshops, performances, and recordings. She currently resides in the Lehigh Valley where, when not performing or recording, teaches in her private studio.

 

Growing up in a musical household in rural western PA, Donna Lang began drumming, playing guitar, singing, and writing music before her formal music education. Prior to joining her efforts with Jessica, Donna was a singer/songwriter/guitarist with the contemporary folk duo Muse. She has also been percussionist with various jazz and folk rock groups and performed at festivals including Musikfest, Mayfair, Three Rivers Arts Festival and Central PA Arts Festival. Donna has played many folk clubs, bookstores and coffeehouses throughout the northeast where she has opened for Les Sampou and The Burns Sisters. She has recorded and produced several of her own and other artists albums and has also been a past recipient of the PA Rural Arts Alliance Grant. Donna teaches guitar, uke, percussion, piano, and songwriting both in her studio in the Lehigh Valley and at Meadowood Music in Blandon, PA. 

 

Donna’s percussive guitar style, resonant vocals and soulful songwriting intertwine with Jessica’s passionate mastery of keyboards and hammered dulcimer to create the muse that is Miradow.
