Gail Finnie Rundlett
Gail plays guitar and four-string Appalachian dulcimer and draws her repertoire from both traditional and contemporary sources.
Gail has performed as a solo artist since the early 1980s in New England’s coffeehouses, clubs, festivals, museums and schools, singing for pre-schools as a music specialist, and teaching dulcimer workshops. She released three solo recordings — Just in Time, Farther Along, and Full Circle, featuring Tim and Mollie O’Brien, Brooks Williams and Johnny Cunningham on backup, among others — and appeared on two CDs as a member of the vocal group Taproot, as well as several compilations such as the Fast Folk Music Magazine released by the folk community in Greenwhich Village in the mid 80’s. Christine Lavin introduced Gail to an international audience by including her version of the Anne Dodson song “Lie Easy” on the compilation recording “When October Goes”. She has shared the stage with Tom Rush, Nanci Griffith, Garnet Rogers, Richard Shindell, David Massengill, Odetta and Pete Seeger, among others.
