Over Lands & Leas (Friday Evening) is a revival-style folk performance, giving narrative shape to the plight of the sojourner, through storms, blues skies, hard work and dreams of times gone by. Featuring songs like "Great Lake Plains, a rollicking bluegrass tune chronicling the history of US prohibition and the underworld in the 1920s. "The Amaryllis," a beautiful song of a mother and daughter, wrapped up in a story of the circle of life. "Over Lands & Leas," an old Scottish Folk tale sung with haunting remembrance of times gone by, as well as, the classic traditional, "Wayfaring Stranger."
The Last Dance (Saturday Afternoon) is an exuberant and melodic performance offering ample opportunity to sing along. This performance features stories of lost love, life, death, family, and a longing for a sense of home. With songs like "Old Man's Town," based off of a poem by the infamous Banjo Patterson, a Welsh inspired lullaby, "All Through The Night,” a sweet nothing called "Yours Forever," influenced by the harmonies of The Andrews Sisters and finally, a traditional Celtic blessing. This performance is elegantly performed and arranged – eminently likable, indeed.
