Hear the "Simple Gifts" - A Folk Duo in Concert - WEGMANS later

Join me, other Baby Boomers and many, many Senior Citizen at a Concert:

Simple Gifts: A Folk Duo in Concert

Two women plus ten instruments equals one good time, and you're in for a very special treat! Karen Hirshon and Linda Littleton play a wide variety of ethnic folk music, and you'll hear selections that range from lively Irish jigs and down-home American reels to hard-driving Klezmer freilachs , haunting Gypsy melodies, and exotic Balkan dance tunes. Throughout their performance, Simple Gifts puts their own distinctive stamp on traditional tunes, creating some of the finest arrangement in folk music today.

Simple Gifts has recorded six albums. Their newest, Crossing Borders: Music of Many Lands, was recognized by Indie Acoustic as including "one of the best songs of 2005." Their previous album, Time and Again, won a bronze star (third place) in the Crossroads Music Awards. Their recordings include traditional music from Romania, Hungary, Russia, Bulgaria, Greece, Ireland, Scotland, France, Sweden, Denmark, and America, plus original compositions by each group member.

Library Headquarters doors open at 12:30pm.
