Greetings & Music News
It is with both sadness and anticipation that we let you know that after twenty-one plus years, we have played our last performance together as Tammerlin. Our return to Radio Live in Pensacola last month was a wonderful "homecoming". The folks at WUWF Radio have been enormously supportive of our music over these many years as have so many of you. It's been an amazing run. You can listen to that June 5, 2014 Radio Live broadcast. Here's the link! wuwf.org/programs/radiolive-archive
We are looking at this as a beginning, not an ending-a fresh start on new paths for each of us. Arvid will continue to perform with some of the local bands he has been involved with over the past few years, bringing his unique and adventurous style to all kinds of music. He's very excited about pursuing his solo performances and exploring all that can be discovered in his guitars and sitars. Lee will continue the work of Tammerlin, including the special concerts "Wintersong" and "Civil War & Seafaring Songs" and the educational and performance offerings through the Florida State Arts on Tour Program. She is looking forward to collaborating with new musical partners and finding fresh approaches to her songs and to the traditional material that she so loves to arrange. Already, we're excited to announce that Lee and our dear friend, Walter Parks, will be opening for Emmylou Harris at the Times-Union Center in in Jacksonville, FL on Saturday, July 26!
We can't tell you how much your friendship and support of our music has meant to us. We hope that you will continue to be a part of our individual musical journeys.
You can keep up with Arvid's performance schedule and his blog musings by visiting his website at www.arvidsmith.com. We'll be posting some of his gigs here, too, for the time being. If you would like to contact Arvid directly, you can e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can e-mail Lee directly at email@example.com.
And, for now, the Tammerlin website isn't going anywhere. You can still reach us through the website and keep up with what we're doing. We would, of course, love to hear from you! You can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, you can visit us on our Facebook page at facebook.com/pages/Tammerlin/ You are welcome to post comments and photos and invite your friends.
We look forward to seeing you out there somewhere!

Hello all. It has been a journey, an adventure and a course of learning that has enriched my life in uncountable ways. I will continue to draw from the lessons learned as I press on. Over the twenty-one years I have taken my life’s work to places I could not have imagined and performed with artists whom I had theretofore only experienced from the audience. I feel strongly that I have performed and composed some of the best music of my life through the Tory Voodoo/ Tammerlin creative lens.
I have admired Lee’s drive, determination and sound way of doing things in service to her art, and I know her new ventures will succeed as well. As for me, I do feel that when the lessons have been learned and the goals have been met, it is time to move on. I do intend to keep active as well and move head on into some long awaited new vistas.
Peace and Praises to all our wonderful friends. Stay Tuned…………Arvid
As I think back on the more than two decades that Arvid and I spent traveling and playing music together, I have to say that it has been a remarkable adventure. I look at the friends we've made, from all over the world, and the places we've seen, and I feel so fortunate. Thank you, Arvid, for your encouragement, your inspiration, your patience and your belief in me. I would not have accomplished what I have accomplished if it were not for Arvid's talent and support. Everything has a life-span. It's important to recognize when it's time to move on. I am excited for Arvid as he heads down new musical paths and wish him all the success he so much deserves.
I know that I stand on all that we've done and look forward to going where my paths will lead me. I am thrilled to be collaborating with so many talented friends in the coming weeks and months. Please stay in touch....Lee
