Sedona recording artists, Rick Cyge and Lynn Trombetta who perform as Meadowlark will be spicing up Tuesday evenings at Marketplace Café as they share enchanting flute and fingerstyle guitar music paired with breathtaking images of Sedona beginning Tuesday, July 10, 5:30-8:30 p.m.

Meadowlark launches the evening with a Happy Hour repertoire that includes a mix of pop favorites and more. Then, at 7 p.m. visitors can relax over dinner and dessert and embark on a magical journey of music inspired by Sedona and the desert southwest as images by photographer Paul Gill, whose work is often featured in Arizona Highways Magazine, are projected during the performance.

This intriguing husband-and-wife duo began their musical journey together in 1993, playing Celtic music in a small café in a beautiful pecan orchard, and soon evolved into creating their own music inspired by the natural settings to which they were drawn.

Choosing the name Meadowlark, they became known for their performances of instrumental compositions inspired by the desert southwest region including "Creek Spirit," written about Trombetta's experience in the canyons of Sedona, where she spent her childhood summers, playing her flute from high and allowing the sounds to waft down through Oak Creek.

Guitarist Rick Cyge's folk roots run deep and his "harp-like" fingerstyle guitar work wraps around the music like a warm comforter. His New England folk beginnings as a singer/composer/guitarist were enhanced by his being founder of Wood & Strings Music Center, a hub of concerts, music instruction and fine instruments in the Boston scene.

In 1988, his travels brought him to the deserts of Arizona, where he makes his home with Trombetta, an Arizona native who is also a wildlife artist. They moved to Sedona in 2009 and happily reside in a home that is nestled in nature at the bend of the creek.

It's no surprise to learn that Meadowlark's influences include some of the most talented performers, writers and arrangers in contemporary music, including Nightnoise, Tingstad & Rumbel, Montreux, James Taylor and Algerian-born French guitarist Pierre Bensusan. "Listening to Pierre and what he got out of that guitar in open tuning opened up a new world for me," Rick says, "and I've not been the same since."
