Lily Storm will present an evening of Eastern European folk songs at 7 p.m. Sunday, June 26, at the Village Homes Community Center, 2661 Portage Bay Ave. East. She’ll be joined by accordion wizard Dan Cantrell and the “magician,” Gari Hegedus, on various string instruments (bowed and plucked). Tickets are $13 in advance; call (530) 867-1032. Tickets at the door will be $15.

Storm, a Bay Area singer, specializes in traditional music, with particular experience in Eastern European styles. She has studied with many traditional singers, including Donka Koleva, Kremena Stancheva and Merita Halili.

She has traveled extensively, living for some months in Hungary and Greece and visiting Russia, Georgia, Turkey, Albania, Bulgaria, Bosnia, Montenegro, Croatia and India. She also makes use of archival recordings to study ancient styles preserved into the early 20th century.

Storm sang with the Bay Area vocal ensemble Kitka for five years. With that group, she recorded as a soloist (“The Vine,” “Wintersongs”), and collaborated in concert with ensembles including Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares and others.

In 2009, she released a debut solo album titled “If I Had a Key to the Dawn: Love Songs and Laments from Eastern Europe.” And now, she is recording a collection of traditional lullabies from all corners of Europe.

Says Derek Beres of the Huffington Post, reviewing her 2009 album: “A stark, stunning record, unsurprising upon learning that Storm sang with vocal troupe Kitka for a half-decade, whose albums never disappoint. Here she takes on Greece, Armenia, Hungary, Bulgaria and more on their own terms, creating a stunning tapestry of sounds backed up by an elegant selection of instrumentalists.”
