Lee greater good 2009 Lee Hunter is a singer, songwriter, rhythm guitarist, percussionist and pianist with a passion for folklore. From 1992-2014, she worked with guitarist Arvid Smith in the critically acclaimed duo, Tammerlin. Together they placed their own stamp on folk/roots music. What you heard was exceptional guitar work accompanying clever original songs and traditional tunes pulled from the roots of American music. ​

In pursuing her own musical path, Lee is building on the sonic history of Tammerlin while exploring new directions and partnering with a number of talented musicians. In 2014 she created a chamber work of music and spoken word for the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens in Jacksonville, FL. Working with Charlotte Mabrey, percussionist and Associate Professor of Music at the University of North Florida and Philip Pan, concert master for the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra., the end result was a CD recording of the project. Lee's focus remains on performing and writing songs. She and Walter Parks, longtime guitarist for Richie Havens and a fine songwriter and solo performer, were asked to open to open a series of shows for Emmylou Harris in 2015. They have since performed at several music festivals and plan to continue to collaborate from time to time. She is also working with outstanding guitarist and award-winning songwriter, Joey Kerr. Joey brings impressive musicianship and an extensive knowledge of American music to the duo's sound. They have played together at a number of festivals and concert venues. In addition, Lee and Joey offer an educational program for students of all ages and two special concerts of music and spoken word-a holiday program,“Wintersong-A Celebration of the Winter Season” and “Civil War & Seafaring Songs”. From time to time, you may also see Lee and Joey performing with her 6-piece band, Lee Hunter and the Gatherers.

As part of Tammerlin, Lee toured extensively and found and continues to find her music in demand at venues across the U.S. and in Europe. She has shared the stage with The Band, Emmylou Harris, Alex De Grassi, Doc Watson, the Del McCoy Band, Dar Williams and many more. She has worked in the studio with talented musicians including Joe Craven, Darol Anger and Byron House. And so the adventure continues. “Tammerlin had a great 20 plus year run. I learned so much and am so grateful for all of the experiences I had during that time,” says Lee. “I’m looking forward to the next chapter -- to learning more and to finding fresh ways to express music through new partnerships.”
