Step into an enchanted realm of Celtic-infused music and myth. Sharon Knight's ethereal voice and haunting lyrics have won her a loyal following across the country, and Winter's adept guitar accompaniment casts a transfixing backdrop. Bay Area songstress Sharon Knight is a Celtic folk singer in leather armbands. She plays octave mandolin as if it were an electric guitar and sings as though she means to summon a storm. Her melodic storytelling combines with the nimble artistry of longtime collaborator Winter on acoustic guitar to cast a musical enchantment that is both ethereal and fierce. As a duo acoustic act, Sharon Knight and Winter have released "Incantation" (1996), "Song of the Sea" (2005), and "Neofolk Romantique" (2013). As the core of a progressive folk metal band they have released the self-titled "Pandemonaeon" (2001), "Temple of Dreams" (2003), and "Dangerous Beauty" (2010). Their most recent album, "Portals" (2016), features guest artists such as SJ Tucker, Betsy Tinney, Nathaniel Johnstone, and Sonja Drakulich, among others, and includes a full-length video for its featured song, "Porcelain Princess". In addition, the team produces HEXENFEST, Northern California's only outdoor Pagan performing arts festival (Sept. 12-15, 2019 in Upper Lake, CA). Learn more and listen at sharonknight.net.
