Band without a name

Banda gan Ainm

"Band with no name" includes Tim Loftus, flute and whistle; Mike Ladd, guitar and vocals; Steve Harnois, bass and vocals; John Guertin, percussion; Myra, Zoe, and Carolyn, fiddles; and Mary, cello. On the way to a gig, if they see someone wandering along the road carrying a guitar, they may bring him along too, to play Irish tunes with them.

You'll hear us before you see us.

Alley Music

"Alley Music" is Myra MacLeod on fiddle or viola with any available hot musicians from Worcester County and beyond. We play whatever we like and it’s always fresh, friendly and easy to listen to. If you see us advertised, come listen!

Restaurants, Pubs and special events

Myra will play solo violin and viola or will arrange an ensemble of musicians to play as strolling or corner musicians, adding a delightful background of Celtic, folk pop, classical and improvisations. Booklover's Gourmet in Webster, P.J.'s New England, and pubs in Newport, Woonsocket RI and Framingham are some of the venues that have enjoyed Myra's music, as well as special events at Worcester's Centrum Center, and Arts Worcester.

Myra loves to congregate with the usual suspects.


Myra is fond of the stage at Mechanic's hall, and gets onto it every chance she gets. She's also enjoyed playing in the pit orchestra at the Foothills Theater for a "Patsy Cline" revue.
