Music has been a central part of our story throughout the years. Since meeting in college, we’ve always been singing, practicing instruments, writing songs, performing, teaching, and supporting each other in musical endeavors. Six degrees, one wedding, and four kids later, we’ve been making music together for well over fifteen years.
We want to share that music with you.
Abigail Zieger received her Bachelor’s of Sacred Music and Masters of Education from Clarks Summit University. She is a vocal soloist and choral member of several ensembles in her region, including Mostly Opera, Anthracite Opera Company, Voce Angeli, and the Arcadia Chorale. She has also appeared with her husband, Timothy Zieger, for both live and recorded performances of his original music in programs like WVIA’s Homegrown Music and WBRE’s PA live!
In addition to music performance, Abigail is an active music educator and enjoys teaching voice lessons from her private studio. Alongside her husband, Abigail is proud to have brought community music classes and events to youth, the elderly, and special needs adults through local libraries, hospitals, nursing homes, and the Wyoming County Cultural Center. Most recently, she has forayed into virtual teaching to serve students all over the country.
When not singing or teaching, Abigail can be found working in her kitchen, typing up a storm for a freelance writing gig, helping her kids with school, or consuming copious amounts of coffee. She resides with her husband, four children, and one hamster in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
Writing songs is a craft and an art, but also a way of framing life and thinking about it.
Timothy Zieger’s songwriting draws on his life experiences as a father and teacher, expands on his studies in philosophy, history, and literature, and alludes to his interests in plants, exploration, and working with his hands. Through his music, Tim has the ability to weave intimate stories and engage his listeners with big questions and ideas.
Tim’s recorded works, the EP Now to Recall, and the concept album, North Light have been variously compared to Simon & Garfunkel, Bon Iver, and Sparklehorse, and described as “lush” and “full of longing.” His new educational children’s music project, Charter Bus, will soon celebrate its first release, Times Tables.
These projects represent a bright, though small, portion of Tim’s songwriting and work. An engaged member of his community, Tim facilitates a monthly meet-up of songwriters at The Gathering Place in Clarks Summit, PA and leads community music events at libraries, festivals, and other venues throughout his home region.
Tim has been a featured artist on WBRE’s PA Live! and WVIA’s Homegrown Music, for the Scranton Cultural Center, the Wyoming County Cultural Center, and numerous other venues. He has engaged audiences in schools and nursing homes, at house concerts and cafes, places of worship and festivals. His musicianship and intuitions have made him a welcome contributor to many other artists’ projects.
Though many of these activities were interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic through 2020, new hopes and exciting opportunities attend 2021 and beyond. Joined by pianist and composer, Zach Sprowls, Tim looks forward to connecting with audiences around compelling songs that underscore our shared human experience.
When he’s not writing songs or performing, Tim’s teaching, riding a bike, tending a garden, reading, carving spoons, or watching Jay Leno’s Garage with his wife and kids in the Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania.
