Fortuity Duo Bio Sheet
David H. Roberts is a classically trained violinist who has been playing and performing since the age of 7. In college he became interested in rock and roll violin and performed in several bands. David also pursued an avid interest in psychology and earned a B.A. in Psychology and an M.S. in Rehabilitation Counseling. During his 25 years with the North Florida Evaluation and Treatment Center, he was part of a professional band of musicians who performed several times every year for the patients. David encouraged several talented patients to learn instruments and perform with the band. The therapeutic, healing aspect of music fascinates David, and he was able to witness first-hand how making music can change a person's life for the better. David is also a talented composer and singer: His beautiful and haunting song "Astrid" is on Fortuity's new CD, Senka's Joy. David plays mandolin, keyboards, and viola and is a versatile percussionist on many world instruments including Egyptian Dumbek, Irish Bodhran, and Uzbek Doira.
Tina S. Larkin has sung all her life. Her first instrument was an electric guitar at the age of ten ("I wanted to be a Beatle, but the Boys neither wanted nor needed a ten year old member"). She ended up learning to play her true love, the fiddle. Many years were invested in learning Irish fiddle tunes performed in authentic County Clare style. She studied Irish Gaelic at the University of Texas so she could sing Gaelic songs. Always interested in fine art, she won a scholarship to study Painting at Pratt Institute in New York. She entered regional Fleadh Cheoil (Irish Music Competitions) and won awards in Fiddling and Singing. Jewish (Klezmer) music from Eastern Europe and the Middle East always interested her, but she didn't feel an urge to learn the music until the passing of her mother, who was Jewish. Tina also plays harp and is one of a handful of Klezmer harpists in the world. She has 20 years experience both as a performer and as a designer and presenter of music education programs. Tina also has taught Irish fiddling at the college level at the University of Alaska.
Together, David and Tina have played Celtic, Jewish and other ethnic music for three years. Their new CD, Senka's Joy is being favorably reviewed in the early 2005 issue of the national periodical Beat Magazine. Alicia Svigals, the great Klezmer violinist and founding member of the Klezmatics says,"I enjoyed Senka's Joy. I especially like those old-time Klezmer sounds, and the Celtic pieces are hypnotic!"
