“Along with guitar, the headliners for the evening, Mr. and Mrs. Lema play a variety of traditional instruments, including ukulele, dulcimer, and bodhran. Their music is a mix of traditional Appalachian songs, Piedmont blues and many of their own American-influenced compositions.”


- Craig Horleman, “Best Bets” Delaware State News

“Traditional Appalachian ballads, plus Piedmont style finger picking blues, plus original country and rock influenced composition- these are all enticing ingredients to add to any musical endeavor for sure. That this melodic blend is being prepared and served up by two of the most loving, caring, and gracious people in the entire Rhode Island Arts & Music community is what makes the end result so much more satisfying and enjoyable.”


– Don Tassone, Mediator Stage, Providence, RI

“I hope you can join us ... at Tavern Hall as we welcome back to our stage Barbara and Wyatt Lema. It's always such a pleasure to have them here to play for us. Their wonderful song choices of timeless folk and Americana classics as well as many original songs are filled with a warmth that makes you feel like someone just threw another log on the fire. With Wyatt on guitar and the occasional dancing frog and Barbara with a beautiful collection of handmade mountain dulcimers this is a show you don't want to miss.”


- Bob Woods, Tavern Hall Music Series, Kingston, RI

“Barbara and Wyatt kicked ass!”
