About Meg York
My name is Meg York. I'm a multi-instrumentalist currently based in Denver, Colorado. I produce acoustic modal music for concerts, movement, theater, film scores and community building events based on a vast background in dance accompaniment and melodic arrangement. My global groove ensembles feature sizzling, soaring solos over odd meter rhythms from Arabic folkloric and Classical traditions, Balkan, Persian, Klezmer, Sephardic, Romanian and Roma traditions. I lived in Turkey for clarinet study and Bhopal, India, at the Dhrupad Sansthan for raaga. I have a Bachelors in music performance from University of New Mexico in Western music and flamenco dance and started accompanying Arabic and Balkan line dancers 30 years ago at Mendocino, California Music and Dance Camps. I acted in Paula Vogel’s Tony award winning play, Indecent at Denver Center for the Performing Arts and 411 Music has placed my scores in Warner Brothers films through American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.
