THE WOODS HOLE FOLK MUSIC SOCIETY (WHFMS):

Presents “John Roberts and Debra Cowan” on Sunday, February 15. John Roberts and Debra Cowan, both brilliant singers in the Anglo-American tradition, recently decided to team up for a series of small concerts to help with the logistics of getting from place to place. Their success and enjoyment blossomed into a longer-term collaboration, which we're very glad they're bringing back to Woods Hole again. John and Debra first met in 1999 at the New Bedford Whaling Museum, where John and his longtime musical partner Tony Barrand were performing a concert of Maritime Songs. They continued to meet at various folk music events in New England, often appearing on stage together at New England folk festivals. They share a deep and abiding passion for the old songs and ballads that have been handed down through the oral tradition in the English-speaking world, performing a cappella or accompanied by guitar, concertina and banjo. And though their concerts focus mainly on traditional songs, we can expect contemporary material as well, including songs by friends of both performers. Be prepared to join in and sing along! The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Admission is $15, with discounts for members, seniors, youth, and children. The Community Hall is handicapped accessible. There is no charge for street parking after 6:00 p.m. More information is available at www.arts-cape.com/whfolkmusic or by calling (508) 540-0320.
