A Night of A cappella featuring Big Woods Voices!
September 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$12.00 - $15.00
Big Woods Voices
Big Woods Voices will perform on Friday, September 15, at the Springfield Community Players theatre, located at 165 South St in Springfield, VT.
The Voices are a purely a cappella vocal ensemble comprised of: Alan Blood, long-time member of countless area groups including the Blanche Moyse Chorale, I Cantori, Blue Moon and House Blend; Will Danforth, singer-songwriter and traditional acoustic artist; Becky Graber, leader of the Brattleboro Women’s Chorus and Animaterra Women’s Chorus in Keene; and Amanda Witman, co-leader of the Brattleboro Pub Sing with Tony Barrand.
Big Woods Voices is the fulfillment of a creative transition for Will Danforth from his life as a roots-oriented songster to that of composer/arranger which has married two loves: his love of American roots music and his love of the vast harmonic palette absorbed while singing with the a cappella world music chorus, The River Singers. The results are lyrical settings of poetry by David Whyte, Mary Oliver, W. B. Yeats and others; richly-harmonized standards of the American roots lexicon; and completely original compositions. Add to that pieces by musicians such as Pete Sutherland, The Finest Kind, and Lambert, Hendricks and Ross, and you have the ear-thrilling experience called Big Woods Voices.
Doors will open at 7:00 p.m. for a 7:30 show, and tickets are $15 (seniors $12) at the door, cash only. Advance reservations can be made online at springfieldcommunityplayers.org or by calling the studio at 802-885-4098.
