The musical duo of Debby Greenblatt and David Seay play and sing upbeat original and traditional folk music fine-tuned for your event and age group.

Over the past four plus decades they have performed at thousands of concerts, festivals, state fairs, county fairs, weddings, receptions, reunions, schools, preschools, libraries, senior citizen centers, nursing homes, theaters, banquets, picnics, barbecues, and backyards.

Greenblatt & Seay offer a variety of duo and solo performances and workshops. Their performances can include tunes from many different traditions, including Irish, Swedish, Danish, Jewish, and Scottish.

Some of these offerings are eligible for partial funding through the Nebraska Arts Council’s Touring Program.

Upbeat musical performances featuring vocal harmonies, fiddle, guitar, nyckelharpa, banjo, harmonica, recorder, pennywhistle, hammered dulcimer, Lakota style flutes, etc., are tailored for any age. Great for schools, festivals, after dinner shows, senior citizen groups, or anywhere there is a family audience.

Background Music & Strolling

Lively instrumental music perfect for banquets, barbecues, picnics, parties, art fairs, festivals, etc. Featured instruments can include fiddle, nyckelharpa, hammered dulcimer, harmonica, recorders, pennywhistles, and guitar.

Weddings & Receptions

Debby is a past co-concert master for the Hastings Symphony Orchestra and was the first woman to win the Mid-America Fiddle Contest so she’s just as comfortable playing classical violin as she is playing old-time fiddle tunes. Music from many cultures, such as Irish, Jewish, Swedish, can be featured during the ceremony and to help set the mood at the reception.
