Meg York grew up off-grid near the Village of Los Lunas, New Mexico surrounded by the sounds of Mexican, Spanish, Native American, and Jewish music.  Always drawn to eastern sounds and dance accompaniment, Meg has a Performance Degree from the University of New Mexico in Clarinet, Flute and Flamenco Accompaniment.  She has toured Turkey and Mexico playing western classical, flamenco, and world fusion music.  Her passion is dance accompaniment.
