Somos El Mar


Pat Chen & Bill Davis, and sometimes a bunch of other musicians are Somos el Mar. 

The groupís name which means "We are the Sea" in Spanish, comes from an old folk song: Somos el Barco, and just as "The Sea we are sailing on touches many lands" so the music of this group touches many themes. Traditional, Celtic, Caribbean, Original, Folk, Country,... whatever suits the occasion. Their varied repertoire includes instrumentals, ballads, fun songs, originals, traditional tunes & more. 

Pat plays the fiddle & Bill plays guitar (6 & 12). Both Pat & Bill sing beautifully, write songs and  have many years of experience performing alone and together. They are regularly seen at the Folk Club of Reston/Herndon, when they are not on the road.

Their CD appropriately called "Somos el Mar" with 17 selections made with the help of 15 musicians over a three year period was nominated for a WAMMY (Washington Area Music Association Award) in the Folk Traditional and Debut recording catagories. Hear samples from CD

Patís life revolves around her music and her five children and their education. Bill has been a pilot & flight instructor. He is also a balloon pilot (May 2000 he & Pat flew over the Bay Bridge before the annual bridge walk.). In the studio they are nearing completion of a 2nd album which will feature some of the favorite songs from their performances.

Pat & Bill take their music very seriously and can provide a performance that is very seriously fun entertainment for the entire family.
