Debra Cowan & John Roberts
For many years singers John Roberts and Debra Cowan
have blended their eloquent voices to the delight of audiences across America. Accompanied with expert musicianship on guitar, concertina and banjo, they bring to life songs both familiar and obscure. Drawn from both the folk tradition and the work of contemporary songwriters, these songs tell of timeless joys and sorrows, offering windows into where we've come from and where we may be headed. John and Debra are seasoned storytellers, and their introductions convey a love of the songs and the people who've sung them over the years. They can also turn any audience into a chorale by patiently teaching even the often tongue-tying choruses. Listeners leave smiling and humming, knowing that singing is what keeps great songs alive.
