Music Stand

The Tu'Penny Players has been the musical part of the Dance Discovery historical dance troupe from its beginnings in 2004, when Dance Discovery was formed to be an integral performance part of the Lewis and Clark Expedition's 200th anniversary celebration in St. Louis.

The two founders of the band, Martha Edwards (violin) and Kristin Graham (piano) used their classical music background as a great starting point for discovering ways to play this wonderful dance music repertoire.

Since that time Martha and Kristin have added other fine musicians to the group for its many performances: clarinettists Paul Wexler, Dana Hotle and Justus Matthews, flautists Tim Hirtzel, Lisa Gilbert, and violinists Paul Huppert and Aileen Murphy.
