An avid social dancer Elisabeth Williams met William Simcoe one evening in 2003 at a Tango dance in Albany, NY. They regularly practiced at the Tango dance for a few months and ever since they have been performing together in upstate New York at such venues as Beekman Street Art Gallery, The Hyde Collection, Windham Fine Arts Gallery, Kenwood Convent, Professor Java’s, Albany's Summer in the City Art Fair, Troy's Waterfront Farmers’ Market, Borders Bookstores in Colonie and Saratoga, Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Troy Savings Bank Music Hall's Music at Noon series, as well as Café Da Vinci (Florida), Elmwood Community Center (Connecticut), and the Kripalu Center (Massachusetts).
In 2006, Elisabeth and William released their first CD, Mis Sueños de Tango (My Dreams of Tango), with special guest Roseanne Hargrave (soprano).
Over the years Elisabeth has been a guest artist of the Monday Musical Club of Albany on several occasions. Then in 2008, Elisabeth and William were invited to perform at the Classical Guitar Academy of Milan (Italy).
Elisabeth and William have performed primarily as a duet. They have also performed as a trio, quartet, and quintet with such artists as Roseanne Hargrave, Lisa Nielson, and Karen Klevanovsky.
During the past few years Elisabeth has been an active member of the Capital Area Flute Club, performing as a member of their flute choir. She has also enjoyed participating in the Dance Flurry's annual Flurry Festival, where she has played during informal jam sessions focusing on traditional music and dances. Influenced by her experiences there, Elisabeth is pursuing additional flute performance opportunities in the Albany area's traditional dance scene.
