About

WHO ARE WE? We are Sara Pajunen and Rachael Kilgour and together we form the duo SOUND AN ECHO. We create and perform modern, minimalist arrangements of old songs that have stood the test of time. The songs are ones we learned from our grandparents, ones that came from the old country, ones that grew and changed as they were passed from parent to child and from one community to the next. We are interested in bringing new life to the old and remembering how to sing together again.

WHAT IS PATREON? It is a simple way for you to directly support an artist.
Historically, artists relied on one or two very wealthy patrons to fund their creations. These days anyone, no matter their income bracket, can support an artist by donating as little as one dollar a month. It's a kind of micro-patronage!

WHAT ARE WE DOING? YOU helped make the release of our debut album this month possible and we are so grateful. To celebrate, we are making 2020 a year of connection. Real, live, face-to-face community building. Instead of enticing supporters with the promise of a perfectly timed creative output, we will be focusing on free, public performances for underserved communities.

A minimum of 12 times this year, we will visit a nursing home, a community center, a memory care clinic, a library, a shelter, a pre-school - with our songs and our instruments. And when we are done we will be sure to visit Patreon to introduce you to the places and faces we’ve met.

HOW CAN YOU HELP? Firstly and most importantly, take time to notice and value the art in your lives. Isn't it a wonder how powerful the act of creation can be? How it can inspire empathy, growth, connection, possibility, healing?
Secondly, look to your right and consider contributing at a level that feels comfortable to you. Something as small as $5 a month (the cost of one fancy coffee drink!) will add up over a year.

Can you imagine your life so far without music? Where did you hear the music that most influenced you? From a stage? From computer speakers? From your grandmother? Or maybe all three?

Back in the day, people gathered around a piano for entertainment and company. Everyone was a musician through song. We are inspired by the tradition of community song and want to continue the tradition!

THANK YOU!
