January 14, 2018: Debra Cowan & John Roberts

John Roberts - Debra Cowan For many years veteran singers John Roberts and Debra Cowan have been blending their styles and voices to the delight of audiences across America. With their eloquent singing and expert musicianship on guitar, concertina and banjo, they bring to life songs seldom heard these days. 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. Both artists can spin an excellent story -- whether illuminating, inspiring, or amusing, their introductions convey their love of the songs and the people who've sung them over the years. Debra and John firmly believe that folk music is not a spectator sport. They can turn any audience into a chorale by patiently teaching even the often tongue-tying choruses, as well as singing familiar songs. Listeners leave smiling and humming, knowing that great singing is what keeps great songs alive.
