Tickets: $10 advance/$12 door.
Don’t miss this remarkable folk trio from Ottawa, Canada whose exquisite harmony singing and brilliant vocal arrangements are bringing a fresh sense of excitement and discovery to the performance of old songs. The trio’s glorious sound, served up with easy-going humor, has won a devoted following across North America.
Finest Kind is Shelly Posen, professional folklorist, multi-instrumentalist and versatile singer; Ann Downey, guitar, banjo and bass player, who has played in bands ranging from old-time to cowboy music, swing to klezmer and jazz; and Ian Robb, composer, concertina-player, and renowned performer of British folksongs, originally from London.
Their variety of musical backgrounds makes for an exhilarating mix of repertoire. British, American, Irish, and Canadian traditional ballads keep company with gospel rousers, drinking songs, sea shanties, and pop oldies. The timeless works of the Carter Family, the Copper Family, Rudyard Kipling, and Hank Williams mingle with originals by Ian or Shelley. Finest Kind presents the hand-picked best of many genres, and keeps audiences wondering just what delight they’ll hear next. (Whallonsburg Grange Hall)
