Annie & Peter's Involvement with Friends

We are both active Friends. Peter grew up in Ann Arbor (MI) Friends Meeting. Annie's family was close to a Quaker family when she was growing up and joined Friends in 1983. We are currently members of Mt Toby Meeting in Leverett MA. Our Friends Meeting recognizes and supports our music work as a form of informal "ministry". A wonderful group of Friends from our meeting meets with us once a month to provide support and accountability for our work (to keep us headed in the right direction!)

We have travelled extensively among Friends in the US, Canada, Britain, and New Zealand, leading concerts at more than a hundred Quaker different Quaker meetinghouses. We have also often led group singing at Quaker national gatherings as well as at yearly meetings (annual regional Quaker gatherings), retreat centers, and many Friends Schools and summer camps.

Some of the Yearly Meetings we have provided music at include:

Quaker retreat centers we have done retreats at include:

Peter has a website called www.inwardlight.org with writings on Quakerism.
