Artist educator, singer-songwriter and memoirist Deb Cavanaugh will keep you glued to your seat with her dizzying electric mountain dulcimer, her acoustic guitar, her mesmerizing vocals and her sometimes hair-raising stories. Living in upstate New York, she has done local performances at nationally renowned folk venues such as Caffe Lena (Saratoga Springs, NY), Old Songs (Voorheesville, NY) and various local cafes and clubs including The Low Beat (Albany, NY) and The Rustic Barn (Spiegletown, NY).
She plays many genres, including rock and roll, jazz, blues, children's songs, folk and more. She incorporates traditional American culture into her events with the mountain dulcimer and limberjack as well as making crankie rolls, another American tradition. Deb also teaches Music Together®, an early-education research-based program for families with young children.
They say that variety is the spice of life, and Deb sets out to prove this in her many endeavors.
“Deb is always in tune with the chromatic atmosphere."

Re:" Highway in Your Eyes"
"Wow, I love the song. The way your voice turns at the end to the wrenching, almost crying vocal is astonishing."
Anne Saunders (promoter, artist director Falcon
Ridge Folk Festival) - Sharon, CT
”Your vibrato is so well seasoned that it reaches inside the listener to places an unvibrato’ed note would not reach, thus exemplifying the raison d’etre of vibrato.”
MacLeod Cushing (translator, freelance writer, musician) Vancouver, BC, Canada
