Bert and Dorothy Barth have played as a duo since 1996, performing first in Southern and Central California and later in the San Francisco Bay Area.
In the spring of 2012 they relocated back to Southern California and are now available for events in San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange, and Los Angeles counties. Their home base is particularly convenient to the many beautiful venues in the Temecula Wine Country.
Dorothy began playing violin during childhood. She discovered early music after graduating from Stanford University with a degree in music. Bert comes to early music with a background in modern woodwinds and concert management for station WBUR FM in Boston.
Flutes of Fancy has appeared at weddings, special events, museums, and Renaissance Fairs throughout California.
