Caera is a singer, harper, teacher, and writer, who is very passionate about the music, languages, and history of her Gaelic ancestors. She plays a clairseach, a brass-strung harp modeled after medieval harps from Ireland, and sings in all three Gaelic languages (Irish, Scottish, and Manx) as well as other languages.

Caera performs a variety of songs from a variety of time periods and places. She performs songs and chants from the Middle Ages, mostly from northern and western Europe. She also has an ever-growing repertoire of traditional songs from Ireland, Scotland, and the Isle of Man. Many of these songs are in the native languages of these countries. She has a particularly strong interest in the sean-nos singing tradition of Ireland, and has studied this style in the Boston area and in Ireland. She also has a strong interest in the puirt-a-beul (mouth music) singing tradition in Scotland, and has studied this style in the Boston area. Finally, Caera does write her own original songs, in English as well as in Irish Gaelic.

In performance and in teaching, Caera strives to make the Celtic languages, especially Irish Gaelic, accessible and easy for anyone to understand -- whether they only speak English or not, whether they are familiar with traditional Celtic music or not, and whether they have Celtic ancestry or not.

Throughout her career as a performing musician, Caera’s singing has been compared to that of Máire (Moya) Brennan (of Clannad), Nóirín ní Riain, Karen Mattheson (of Capercaillie), Karan Casey, Loreena McKennitt, and several other notable singers in Celtic music. She has also collected such comments from her audiences as "Now I know the angels sing in Gaelic," and "I would walk on broken glass to hear you sing." In 2004 Caera won three gold medals in the Columbus Feis for Gaelic singing and poetry, and in 2005 Caera returned to the Columbus Feis and won five gold medals, in Gaelic singing and poetry, and in harp performance.

Caera has performed and taught at small cafes, large auditoriums, schools, libraries, yoga centers, and assisted living homes, as well as festivals and cultural events such as the Irish Crossroads Festival in Boston, the Lowell Folk Festival, the New England Folk Festival (NEFFA), the Dublin Irish Festival (in Dublin, OH), the Boston Celtic Music Festival, the Northeast Music and Dance (NOMAD) festival, the Midwest Women’s Festival, various Sco

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.

 

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.

 

Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
