Paul Miller has played music professionally for over 40 years - with Coco and the Lonesome Road Band, Bluebird, Andy Shapiro, Breakaway, and the Bluegrass Gospel Project. A versatile musician, he plays guitar, bass, and drums, and sings.

Paul has produced CD’s from Jon Gailmor and Rebecca Pidgeon, and is featured as a guest artist on numerous recordings generated from the Vermont music scene.

Not to stop there, he also coordinates a Supported Employment program for Washington County Mental Health Services in central Vermont.

He lives in the wilds of South Woodbury, Vermont.  Check out his profile and catch one of his rare-and-wonderful solo performances.


Willa Mamet was born in Randolph, VT, and weighed on the pastry scale at Rainbow Sweets on her way home to Woodbury.

She grew up making music with her family and community, one of whom - lucky her - was Paul Miller.  Once dastardly shy, music has drawn her out from under the proverbial rock.  She tours twice yearly with Paul, delighting audiences with her lightening-fast patter and jokes for every occasion.   When not touring with Paul, Willa performs sola with piano, guitar, and ukulele.  She writes songs to break your heart or mend it, as needed.

Willa makes her home in Oakland, CA, where she lives with her piano and a six-pawed cat.  (She daylights as a bodyworker.)

She plays out regularly with friends and on her lonesome.

"The stars shine when these two harmonize."

"One of the best homegrown folk-acoustic acts to grace any stage."

"Mamet’s voice is one of the best around. Her sound is smoky, sensual, folksy, emotive and controlled."
