Cantor Abbe Lyons - Sweet Bough Wedding Collective
Cantor Abbe Lyons

Jewish and non-denominational ceremonies with authentic spiritual meaning, exquisite blessings and the gift of song by ordained Cantor and professional musician and singer with 15 years experience as a solo officiant. As an out lesbian clergyperson, I delight in working with LGBTQ couples. Knowledgeable and creative ritual guidance, translations and interpretations. In addition to Jewish liturgy in Hebrew and English, I am experienced singing folk, blues, jazz, classical and world music in many languages including English, Spanish, Hebrew, Italian, French, German, Yiddish, and Ladino. I can sing a capella, provide my own guitar accompaniment, and/or work with other musicians and singers.
