DayBreak
Traditional Music for a New Day

The musicians of DayBreak have been harmonizing together since at least 1990 in and around Lehigh and Bucks Counties of Pennsylvania. We enjoy applying our rich blend of acoustic instruments and voices to Celtic jigs, reels, hornpipes and ballads; American folk tunes and songs, folk hymns, original pieces, and seasonal songs. Our uniquely-woven sounds, as well as innovative arrangements, bring warmth and freshness to an uncommon range of traditional and current genres.

DayBreak includes:
Cliff Cole playing the hammered dulcimer, guitar, and percussion
Anna Lisa Yoder on the violin, viola, mandolin and bouzouki
Rob Yoder on concertina, guitar, bodhrán, harp and mountain dulcimer.

DayBreak occasionally includes our adult children:
Emily Cole on tin whistle
Seth Yoder on hammered dulcimer, piano, and accordion
Lydia Yoder
on violin, mandolin, ukelele, djembe and bodhrán
Trudy Yoder Gojeski
on cello, guitar, bodhrán and mountain dulcimer

Everyone lends their voice to a growing repertoire of winsome and compelling songs.
