The songs featured in the concert will be primarily from their recent CD, Wintersong.
Many of them are original adaptations of traditional songs.
In the song "Yonder Come Day", the percussion stylings of Scott Kessel form the basis of this song recorded by Bessie Jones and the Sea Island Singers for Alan Lomax in 1960. A type of call-and-response, audience members can't help but participate.
No doubt the audience will also be joining in with "Children Go Where I Send Thee", a counting song from the African American tradition.
In "Maybe This Christmas" by Canadian singer/songwriter Ron Sexsmith, hope for the holiday that seems to carry with it a melancholy of loss:
Maybe this Christmas will mean something more,
May this year love will appear
Deeper than ever before
And maybe forgiveness will ask us to call
Someone we love, someone we've lost
For reasons we can't quite recall...
