In 1978, in a brick building, in the middle of a parking lot on the campus of Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, a classically trained fiddler from Boston met a poetic harmonica player from Birmingham at a bluegrass band rehearsal, and they have been performing together ever since. Four months later the fiddler, Deborah Greenblatt, and the harmonica player, David Seay, were married.
Debby & David have performed extensively as a duo but they also perform individually. At a Greenblatt & Seay event, the multi-talented duo provides rich vocal harmonies, and will play a variety of instruments, such as fiddle, guitar, nyckelharpa, harmonica, banjo, tinwhistles, hammered dulcimer, recorders, limberjacks, tabor pipe, etc.
Greenblatt & Seay are particularly noted for their clever original tunes, (well over one hundred) and have written a variety of shows. They are frequently found at banquets, picnics, and barbecues setting a festive upbeat mood with their lively music in the background. They play, call, and teach introductory old time circle and contra dances and organize and run fiddle contests.
Greenblatt & Seay are just as comfortable sitting in a circle singing and playing with preschoolers as they are performing on stage for adults. They have played for countless state and county fairs, music and art festivals, small town arts council events, banquets, receptions, weddings, funerals, picnics, barbecues, family reunions, nursing homes, senior centers, and for over 1500 school audiences.
