Martha is passionate about Scandinavian fiddling and about working with children. She believes that playing music should be both fun and accessible. When not working with the Seattle Lilla Spelmanslag, Martha can be found performing with a number of Seattle area groups, working in her garden, or hanging out with her dog.
Penny Curtis, Assistant Director
Penny discovered that Scandinavian music is her heart music when her husband surprised her with a piano accordion for Christmas in 1997. She has since learned to play a 2 row diatonic accordion, a 5 row chromatic accordion, and the violin. If she could dance while playing the accordion, she would! She is inspired by the hard work and commitment of the Lilla Spelmanslag kids and delighted by their energy and joy.
