Lisa Gutkin is best known as violinist and vocalist for the Grammy-winning Klezmatics, for her appearance in Sex and the City, and most recently for her work with Sting in his Broadway production "The Last Ship." She is currently working on a CD of original songs, produced by John Lissauer, who has also produced Leonard Cohen, Al Jarreau,

She was a founding member of the downtown Celtic group Whirligig, a long standing member of the Fast Folk house band, with Suzanne Vega, Shawn Colvin and Richard Shindell. She has composed for film and television and appeared on The Conan O'Brien Show, Prarie Home Companion, World Cafe, Mountain Stage, BBC, PBS, ARD in Germany, TVP in Poland, etc. She has teamed with such diverse artists as Natalie Merchant, Peter Knight of Steeleye Span, Jane Siberry, Elizabeth Swados, The Demolition String Band, The Speakeasy String Quartet, Tommy Sands, John Whelan, Cathie Ryan, Pete Seeger and Theodore Bickel to name a few.

As a soloist, Lisa might swing seamlessly from Klezmer to traditional Irish fiddle tunes to blues, Balkan or Appalachian sounds. Or she might pick up a tenor guitar and sing one of her own universally resonant songs. Wherever she goes, Gutkin has an uncanny way of taking the audience with her.
