   Ravenhill Ranters!

  Ravenhill Ranters

This recently established “Americana/Roots” duo will WOW you with their instrumentation and tight harmonies on original and old timey tunes.
Gillian began her musical journey as a child, earning a degree with the Royal Conservatory of Music. In recent years, that skill has been put to use in learning ragtime piano. Her latest instrument is the Autoharp with an interest in Appalachian . Gillian attends the Seattle Autoharp Week to study under highly respected Autoharp instructors.

Rockland is a well seasoned musician who has travelled the scene for several decades. He is a songwriter, slide guitarist, and delta blues buff. Rockland recently fulfilled a life long ambition by acquiring a mandola. He realized quickly that it complimented Gillian’s Autoharp, and thus the duo was formed.
Whether it’s originals or Americana standards, our audience will be part of the musical storytelling experience!
