Jay Brown, an American roots musician, songwriter and Hospice music therapist, and Aditi Sethi, an Indian devotional and folk musician pulled together their eclectic backgrounds to create an original sound when they formed the band, Shantavaani in 2010.

They released three CD’s, most recently, “Sikh Shabads and Spirituals.” Continuing on as “Aditi and Jay,” they play contemplative music with roots. They sing Indian and American folk and spiritual music as well as original music.

In addition, Aditi and Jay recently formed a group called “The Appalucians,” with Angie Heimann and Cas Sochaki of “The Blushin’ Roulettes.” The Appalucians play music from the mountains of Western North Carolina, featuring spirited songwriting, tight harmonies, and a lovely layered interplay between dobro, guitars, harp, bass, and banjo. The Appalucians first CD, “Bright Hills,” was released in Spring 2018. Their follow up album is in the works.

Aditi and Jay started singing together the day they met in 2003, and three children later are continuing to cultivate their musical connection. Their shared work in Hospice influences the sentiments and heart in their music and the folk traditions they honor.

    I am so excited that you are doing these events! Thank you. I will support you as much as I can, with pleasure.
    I’ll begin with Adithi and Jay (I knew Adithi well when I worked at Davidson and she was a student. She has always been splendid and has only grown in talent and wisdom..). I am assuming that the admission is through the donation button. Correct?
