Lark & Spur, as the name suggests, began as duo when Jeff Whiteley and Lori Decker first performed in the streets, public squares and metro tunnels of Paris, Munich and other European cities. Over time the group added more players, and now performs most often as a quintet or as sextet. Lark & Spur is known for a repertoire that ranges from French folk songs from the Middle Ages, to Celtic tunes, Bossa nova and jazz standards, Broadway songs, to Gypsy Swing. Instrumentation includes acoustic guitars, mandolin, penny whistles, upright bass, percussion, piano, musette, and vocals. Performance credits include the Montreux, Deauville and Brienz Jazz Festivals in Europe; radio and television appearances in France, Utah Symphony events in Salt Lake City, regular performances at the Stein Erickson Lodge, and at the River Horse in the Park City area and innumerable private events. The Lark & Spur Christmas concert is a holiday tradition for many families. Lark & Spur has 3 CDs that have received air play in France and Scotland. Lark & Spur counts over 5,000,000 hits on YouTube
