Michael Hubbert

Michael has been studying and playing various types of folk/ethnic music for 60 years. He attended the very first Lark Camp back in 1980, when he was part of the famous duo “Mooncoin”, with Mickie Zekeley.  In the ‘80s he began exploring Puerto Rican and Cuban music and playing the Puerto Rican cuatro.  He played for 10 years with “Mambo This”,  and with “Los Piratas del Caribe”. Over the past 20 years, he has taught Cuban & Puerto Rican songs at Lark Camp, Sierra Music & Arts Festival, and Sommermusikfest in Germany.  Michael and wife Leslie have traveled to Cuba, where they enjoyed playing the music they have been collecting for the past 25 years with some of the locals in Santiago de Cuba, the cradle of Cuban Son. Michael is also a musical instrument maker and restorer, of both string and woodwind instruments.
