Folk Music of the British Isles & N. America Concert Series: Moira Craig & Carolyn Robson

September 29, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Robson-Craig cropposterA Folk Music of the British Isles & North America Class 21L.023J or 21M.223J Event. Free and Open to the Public!

Together Craig and Robson bring a new dimension to the art of a-capella singing. They weave beguiling harmonies around material from the British tradition and beyond with “an effortless range and variety unheard in folk music for many years” (Folk London). Timeless songs of love and longing rub shoulders with compelling contemporary songs, and passionate, dramatic ballads take their place alongside a lilting Shetland melody or a stirring hymn from the Ozark mountains. The occasional solo song only adds to the variety of their overall performance. Here is a duo in which two distinctively different voices melt into one another to create a sound which is all their own.
