Music for Weddings & Events:

Carl would be happy to provide music for your ceremony, reception, art opening, business meeting or other special event. Carl has played for hundreds of weddings and receptions including special events at the Portland Museum of Art, Portland Stage Company and the Maine Governor’s residence. You can hire Carl as a solo performer or in a duo, trio or larger ensemble. Repertoire can include classical music, jazz and world music.

Here are some options:

Solo: Carl can perform on both flute and guitar, (though not at the same time!), drawing on a wide range of repertoire.

Flute and Guitar duo: This is an elegant combination. Carl works with either Keith Crook or Nathan Kolosko, both excellent concert guitarists. Repertoire can include classical music, bossa nova, jazz standards, Beatles, celtic music, etc. (Other classical ensembles with strings or piano are also available.)

Jazz Combo: This can be a duo, trio or larger ensemble. A wonderful combination is Carl on flute and guitar in a duo with upright bass. Carl works with premier bassist Jim Lyden and other top members of the Maine jazz community.

Casco Bay Tummlers Klezmer Band: Looking for Jewish party music? Look no further. The Tummlers are the way to go. Please visit the Tummlers site for more details. www.cascobaytummlers.com


Pricing depends on the number of musicians, the length of time involved, significant travel and other expenses. A rough estimate is $200 per musician plus expenses. Please contact Carl, however, to discuss the details of your event. You can reach Carl by email


Thank you so much for coming to play for us last Saturday. It was a sad but beautiful day, and your lovely flute brought a special magic to our simple ceremony. Even when we were searching for the gravesite, you accompanied us - it was wonderful hearing the flute, and I know my mother would have absolutely loved it. I hope you know how appreciative we all were, I'm sorry I didn't mention you in my remarks, but after the funeral everyone spoke about the beautiful music.

Thank you for playing at my wedding. You and Nathan played such beautiful music during the ceremony and the cocktail hour. It really made a potentially stressful time much less so.  I also wanted to thank you for always being great at communication. Not all vendors have been so responsive with email.   You and Nathan are just great!
