1988 - 1993
Line-up: Paul Espinoza, Margie Butler, Florie Brown
After Lief left to form his own group, Margie,
Paul & Florie continued recording and touring.
It was during this period that they had some of their most successful European tours. This was due
to their collaboration with the European record label, ARC Music. The record label formed a tour agency
and sent the trio all over Europe, performing in theaters, festivals and concert halls.
During these years, Golden Bough was involved with several
different activities in Europe.
Among these were three tours with the World Music Ensemble during 1991, 1992 & 1993.
The line-up consisted of Margie, Paul & Florie on vocals, harp, guitar, accordion, violin, penny-whistle and mandolin.
They were joined by world class musicians, each an incredible performer in his own right. Hossam Ramsey, from Egypt, played dumbek and percussion.
He is a world renown percussionist who has toured and recorded with Peter Gabriel and Robert Plant & Jimmy Page, among others.
Enrique Ugarte, from Spain, is a rare master of the accordion as well as a classical conductor and composer.
Flavio Cucchi, a well-known and popular classical guitarist from Italy; Kalman Balog a gypsy from Hungary who is a master of the cymbalon
and Pablo Carcamo, from Chile, multi-instrumentalist, singer and composer.
