A superb singer, guitarist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, the Boston Globe calls Cindy  "One of folk music's most respected songwriters... provocative, heartwise, and original... a brilliant guitarist."   Grey is one of America's finest players of the Irish flute and tin whistle, as well as an accomplished singer and concertina, fiddle, piano and harmonium player.  The Washington Post hails him as "A gifted multi-instrumentalist who consistently demonstrates his melodic finesse," while The New Mexico Daily describes his playing as "positively spellbinding."  

As composers, each has contributed to the unique tapestry of contemporary folk and world music as it exists and flourishes in America today.   Cindy has appeared on A Prairie Home Companion, and both have been profiled on NPRs Weekend All Things Considered.

The duo's repertoire includes Cindys sparkling original songs, distinctive settings of traditional Irish music, Scandinavian fiddle duets, old-time fiddle and guitar tunes from southern Indiana, and new music that Cindy and Grey are inventing together. There is plenty of variety and breadth of musical territory here, all deeply rooted in folk traditions, and interwoven with the renaissance and baroque counterpoint in which both Cindy and Grey were immersed while growing up. Included are vocal duets, guitar, Irish flute, Irish alto flute, tin whistle, concertina, harmonium, and duet fiddling, along with plenty of stories that put the music into a personal context.

Expect a wonderful and memorable evening.

 

As always, if you feel inclined to bring a refreshment for our intermission table it makes our evening together all the merrier.
