5pm- Potluck, 7pm- Concert
@Ricki's, 292 Main St, Ashfield MA,
Woods Voices unites 4
veteran area singers in celebrating their common
passion for a cappella harmony: Alan
Blood, long-time member of area
groups including the Blanche Moyse Chorale, I
Cantori, Blue Moon and House Blend; Will Danforth,
acoustic artist, and the group's arranger/composer;
Becky Graber, leader of the
Brattleboro Women's Chorus and Animaterra Women's
Chorus in Keene; and Amanda Witman, founder
and co-leader of the Brattleboro Pub Sing
with Tony Barrand.
Reveling in vocal harmony, Big Woods
Voices marries singing traditions from around the world with various
American roots genres. Danforth concocts original compositions &
arrangements where harmony & dissonance dance in riveting yet
accessible soundscapes. Imagine lyrical settings of poetry by David
Whyte, Mary Oliver, W.B. Yeats, and others; richly-harmonized standards
of the American roots lexicon; & completely original compositions.
Add gems by musicians such as Pete Sutherland, The Finest Kind, &
the Stanley Brothers and you have the ear-thrilling experience called
Big Wood Voices.
