PAST PERFORMERS

Tynwald

The Official High Court of Tynwald is the legislature of the Isle of Man; and is the oldest continuous parliamentary body in the world. Its name, translated into modern terms, means, "the gathering place." We have chosen the name Tynwald to represent us: a gathering of friends.

We have combined many years of both classical training and homegrown talents to create a unique sound that is exciting, passionate, and just good fun. We breathe new life into traditional music from the British Isles, folk songs of more recent times, and quirky, obscure tunes from unexpected places.

Tynwald is based in north Texas; and we play all over the metroplex at public venues and private events.

Heather Powell began studying violin over thirty years ago; and has been playing the fiddle with Tynwald for the last ten years.

Melissa Teinert has been playing cello for thirty years as well. In fact, she and Heather began their musical studies through the Plano Independent School District's orchestra program! Melissa has always had a passion for Celtic music; and was delighted when she had the opportunity to join the band Vagabond in 2003.

Bob Hicks, guitar and songwriter, was a founding member of Vagabond. He is self-taught--and in high demand! He also plays with Yardgoat, CUUC's House Band, and Monday Night Jammers.

Hawaii native Eli Lopez had no shortage of musical influences being raised in a family of musicians. He grew up listening to Sam Cooke, Carole King, James Taylor, Bob Marley and Jimmy Cliff and the musicians from his island home in the 1970’s and 80’s. Even now, he still loves listening and singing to different genres of music including Reggae, Oldies, Rock, Christian & Country. From a young age, he was accustomed to singing in front of an audience and was exposed to numerous musical instruments such as the ukulele, bass guitar and even the auto harp. The acoustic guitar has been his instrument of choice from the beginning of his professional career in 1993.  

Eli has been a lead vocalist and rhythm guitar player for a variety of bands over the years, including One Drop, which he formed with his brother in 2001. Together they produced two successful albums with all original music. Eli has played at many different venues in the Hawaii and also has entertained audiences in California and Japan. He has won numerous music competitions since high school and throughout his career has played with talented local musicians from Hawaii and abroad.  

Today Eli enjoys sharing his talents and the Hawaiian culture with visitors at the hotels on the shores of Waikiki.  

Robin Willis

With vocals referred to as "wonderful, marvelous instruments", stage presence described as "something you have to experience", and songwriting skills that are "top notch and refreshingly original", Dallas-based Blues-rock band Blues, Love & Trouble is one of the fastest up-and-coming acts in Dallas, TX. BLT's vocal and songwriting approach draws on many influences that can't be pegged as one genre, per se. Sometimes mellow and smooth, sometimes gritty and powerful, undertones of blues, rock, and even a little Texas country color BLT's distinct sound. Combined with songs that speak for themselves, each melody unfolds layer after layer of sultry, multi-faceted goodness.

Jackie Minton

Her first original song premiered at her fifth grade talent show and seven years later, she recorded her debut EP Searching for Now. Jackie's style is often compared to Ingrid Michaelson, Joni Mitchell, and Daughter. 

She enjoys reading a good book or magazine, but her favorite past times involve pen and paper. When found with them in hand, Jackie can be caught journaling in her notebook, composing a letter, or -as you may have guessed- writing a song.

Ashley Lagunas

​A songwriter's sound is often shaped through life experience, drawing tones and colors from the well of life's story. Ashley Lagunas grew up a missionary kid and was accustomed to life on the move. Her well is deep and filled with many life-defining moments.

Ashley remembers; "One of my earliest memories that marked me was on a train bound for my new home; Mexico City. I'd lay on my red velvet bunk looking out the window as we passed shack after shack of homes made of cardboard. My six year old perspective was shifting and transforming with each mile the railway made. I was seeing the world, and the world was telling me her story. The train pulled in to the station and my little feet stepped off and touched the soil of their first nation. I was introduced to the abundant life and I was forever changed."

Blessed with a voice that is tender and invading, Ashley Lagunas's music exists to bring hope and courage to the heart of every voyager sailing their sea in life. Her songs are an overflow of her relationship with God.

Her newest album “Raise the Stakes” is paved with melody and saturated with winsome lyrics inviting the listener further into a life of faith with God.

"There was a continuing theme on this record-Faith" says, Lagunas. "My heart cry is for people to experience God and the fullness of life that is found only in Him. My hope is that these songs would bring hope, speak life and and stir faith."
