From the pulpit to the pub, Three of Cups will rouse a crowd and raise spirits through song.
Deborah and Ann-Marie have been singing together since 1987. They bring their camaraderie, harmonious voices and love of storytelling to New England coffeehouses, lecture halls and concert stages. Please go to the Listening room to find out about their recordings.

Praise for the Three of Cups
They have become a very powerful music unit, able to achieve that rare event of telling a story in song while harmonies support and enhance rather than detract from the narrative. They are a complete and exciting musical entity."

When the Three of Cups performed with us in Boston, it was as if polka angels had descended upon the stage. Their voices were enchanting and beautiful."
