With rich voices and a wide array of traditional instruments, Traveler’s Dream has been captivating audiences throughout the Midwest for over fifteen years. The band’s diverse instrumentation is one of the things audiences seem to appreciate most. Michael Lewis provides driving rhythms and melody on vocals, the guitar, mandolin and Quebecois-style foot percussion. Denise adds texture and musical variety on the Irish flute, voice, concertina, tin whistle, and jaw harp. Uilleann piper Taylor Stirm also plays the low whistle while Chance Heasty shines on the fiddle, fife, and didgeridoo. Though serious about the quality of their music, they are often praised for their ability to engage listeners and create a fun atmosphere that is enjoyed by all!
