Mike & Paula Perform
Mike and Paula have been performing together since 1995, years before they opened Meadowood Music. From the beginning of their musical relationship, they held the belief that sharing music makes life better, that virtuoso performance is breathtaking, but does not replace music that people make together or live music that people share in intimate settings.
Mike and Paula perform acoustic music, singing and playing guitar mandolin, fiddle, bass and banjo on everything from old Scottish Ballads, to Stephen Foster, Hoagy Carmichael, James Taylor, Janis Ian, Mary Chapin Carpenter, John Cougar Mellencamp, the Grateful Dead, and even a rare original every now and then.
Mike and Paula perform at all of Meadowood Music's open mics, opening the three-hour musical events that the store hosts from May to September every summer. They have also made a tradition of performing once a year at the Half Moon Cafe, a lovely venue affiliated with an art studio, Clay on Main. They also perform on the second Sunday in August every year at the Maidencreek Old Time Music Festival. They have performed at Bethlehem's Musikfest and Bethlehem's First Night Celebrations and have frequently performed at Barnes & Noble coffee shops. While the music store keeps them pretty busy, they do book performances when they can.
