About the Band

SINGING PILGRIMS is an intergenerational duo performing Celtic, traditional and original music that is so much more than melody and rhythm. Their songs are personal expressions of the path they have walked together for over two decades and their story is woven into the fabric of each tune.

The SINGING PILGRIM band members have been making music together for over 20 years–beginning when Natasha was a small child in “The Apple Mountain Harp Kids” ensemble directed by Jeanne. Their musical journey morphed through the years and most recently, Jeanne and Natasha played with the band “The Next Chapter,” (New Mexico Talent Showcase Champions) with performance credits such as the World Bodhran Festival near Killarney, Ireland, the North Texas Irish Festival, the Longs Peak Scottish/Irish Highland Festival, and Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri, to name a few. Thousands of Albuquerque residents attended their hugely popular “Celtic Christmas Concert” series held annually for a decade.

Jeanne Page, (“Mama J” to her band-mate, Natasha) , is a best-selling author of Hammered Dulcimer books with Mel Bay Publications. While the hammered dulcimer was Jeanne’s main instrument in previous bands, in “Singing Pilgrims,” she focuses on her first love, the guitar.

Natasha Coffing is a multi-instrumentalist composing on the piano as well as the Celtic harp, but long ago, the fiddle became the instrument that felt most at home in her hands. Tasha’s aggressive and passionate playing stye has become the centerpiece of the “Singing Pilgrims” signature sound.
