ABOUT DARLENE: Widely multi-talented, darlenYa is adept at every known stage skill except, perhaps, ventriloquism. She is apt to play one tune on a child’s toy accordion and, on the next, accompany herself with a didgeridoo.*

A seasoned performer with many miles traveled along her minstrel road, along the way darlenYa has expanded her vocal range and skills to encompass just about any kind of keening or chanting or ululation one may be aware of, from operatic soprano to mariachi to Finnish yoiking to throat singing to yodeling or even barking like a dog.

Her keen guitar style keeps pace with her singing, providing skilled accompaniment in numerous musical styles and rhythms.


ABOUT STEVEN: You may have seen Steven at our Anniversary Party with “Public Access”, or perhaps with his band “The Ex Pats” – and his sound can be described as “equal parts atmospheric and grounded, beautiful and beastly. Leaf’s songwriting is more real and raw than ever, and his fearless vocal performance splits at the seams with emotion. From lush blankets of sound to sparse, punchy cadency, this is the sound of a band at it’s best.”


ABOUT THE GHOSTLIGHT: The GhostLight Theatre is a new theatre performance venue in the Benton Harbor Arts District that seeks to illuminate the arts and culture of the area. We will create events where children and adults are more than observers, and become active participants in creation and exploration of a variety of performance media.

The brainchild of tenor Paul Mow, The GhostLight Theatre is a collaboration of local performing artists, business people, arts supporters, and enthusiastic audience members. For years, Paul had his dream of a community-based theater and, when he partnered with Martha Hesse, the dream took form. In January 2018, we leased a building in the Benton Harbor Arts District, and began plans for creating a “black box” style theater, backstage and workshop areas, two offices and a beautiful front lobby.
