Lucy Peckham    


I’m a theatre sound designer/composer, a live-acoustic-music engineer, field recordist, and sound-effects creator.

As Chief Sound Engineer of the the Anchorage Folk Festival, the Alaska Folk Festival, and the Spenard Jazz Festival, and as an independent contractor, I work in all music styles that have their roots in folk traditions. Genres include Americana, Singer/Songwriter, Bluegrass, New Grass, and all the Celtic/Gaelic styles, Old Time, Cajun, Zydeco, Creole, Jazz, Blues, Swing…and fusions of all of the above. For a list of representative artists I’ve worked with, see the Sound Engineering page.

As a sound designer I’ve been privileged to design for many fine theatres since 1987. See the Sound Design page for a sample list of productions.

I’ve recorded and created sound effects since I began studying sound design in college. Now, with sound effects partner Mike Sakarias, Both Ears Live Sound records, collects, and produces custom sound effects for sale, now available through Contact us for direct service!
