Cynthia Jaffe

Colcannon’s newest member, Cynthia has been performing in the Celtic music scene since 2002, most notably in the Colorado-based trio “County Boulder.” A multi-instrumentalist with classical roots, she hails from New York and lived in New England, Denmark, Amsterdam, India, and various places between, before settling in Colorado. Long intrigued by world music, she studied classical Indian music (flute and kanjira) at Wesleyan University’s World Music Program and with master teachers in Madras, India. Somehow it was inevitable that the Irish flute would especially capture her heart.
