About Sound an Echo

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? Our original plan for 2020 was to give free, public performances. The COVID-19 pandemic has derailed that plan, but not our music making! Instead, we are creating and sharing songs from the safety of our own home. Keep an eye here and on our Facebook page for live-streamed content.

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 - and is ESPECIALLY helpful as artists deal with the financial fallout of the current pandemic.

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!
