Villanelle began in the fall of 2011
 after Lynnette and Karen met at a local Santa Cruz nursing home where Lynnette was Activities Director, and where Karen's mother lived for a time. 

    They soon discovered that they not only had similar
 musical backgrounds and knew many of the same songs, but that their voices blended beautifully.   Having a similar compassion for people in hospice care, they began by singing a cappella for room-bound residents in two part harmonies as well as performing for groups,  now expanding to include assisted living residences, and public venues. 

Lynnette and Karen perform a wide variety of styles, 
 including jazz, Celtic folk, traditional American folk, country and Gospel.   A variety of instruments are used during their program, including guitar, piano, dulcimer, concertina, flute, recorder, ukulele, and autoharp, giving each tune its own unique sound, creatively arranged with great vocal harmonies.

             "Villanelle" performs a refreshingly diverse assortment of songs, uniquely arranged to create a wonderful musical experience for all ages that is beautiful, harmonious, inspirational 
and fun!
