Deborah
Deborah (DJ to her friends) is a performer, songwriter, teacher, recording artist, choral director, and community music organizer. She teaches mountain dulcimer classes at Berkeley’s Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse; directs the singing group Women & Song; and teaches private voice, mountain dulcimer, and songwriting. Deborah founded the Berkeley Dulcimer Gathering at The Freight in 2013 and, with Steve Eulberg, co-founded the Berkeley Dulcimer Orchestra in 2014. Musically versatile, she performs as both a jazz vocalist as well as a traditionally-influenced songsmith on her dulcimer.

Deborah’s current musical project is 1 in 8, songs & stories inspired by successful breast cancer treatment. It is a theatrical piece with collaborator and guitarist Mimi Fox, recorded in 2017. Previous recordings include Snapshots, also recorded with Mimi Fox, and The Green Man recorded by The DulciMates, her vocal & dulcimer duo with husband, Buffalo. Deborah is the founder and Executive Director of the Berkeley Dulcimer Gathering held annually at The Freight. In her spare time, and when the cat allows, she knits. http://djhamouris.com/
