Heidi Hepler & Michèle Ramo are a dynamic vocal / guitar duo. They first crossed paths in Detroit, Michigan in 1990 at a backyard barbeque where Detroit musicians jammed and shared music all day. (Introduced by their mutual friend - five-time world accordian champion Peter Soave.) Ramo had just left his job as a violinist with an Italian State Symphony Orchestra and spoke very little English. Heidi, a former Miss Michigan, was moving to Rome, Italy that very summer for performance and study... fast forward two years... it was a sweltering Roman night - in the summer of 1992 - the two gypsy souls "bumped" into each other in Piazza Navona, shared some espresso and gelato, amazed at their meeting and said "arrivederci"... fast forward two years... They reconnected in Detroit two years later in 1994, began working together, and were married the same year.
