The acoustic quartet, “Lantern Light” performs a blend of folk, bluegrass, Celtic, Americana, roots and original music. Their relaxed style, varied instrumentation, and beautiful harmonies showcase their obvious love for the music they play. They draw from a deep well of songs from the familiar to unique and lesser known treasures. Lantern Light has performed at coffeehouses, house concerts, benefits, farmer's markets, church services, and more!  Combining many years of performance, Lantern Light includes Marie Duprey (whistles, vocals) Michael Ross (guitar, vocals) Gail Wiegner (guitar, mandolin, vocals) Allen Wiegner (bass, vocals).
