Woods Hole Folk Music Society Presents “Claudia Schmidt & Sally Rogers”
January 17, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$15
THE WOODS HOLE FOLK MUSIC SOCIETY (WHFMS): JANUARY 17
Presents “Claudia Schmidt & Sally Rogers” on Sunday, January 17. Claudia Schmidt describes herself as a “creative noisemaker,” delighting audiences who learn to expect anything: hymns, folk classics, poetry, bawdy verse, torch songs, satire, and multifaceted originals. Her exceptionally wide vocal range is complemented by fine 12-string guitar and dulcimer. Claudia has been featured on stages large and small for four decades, and her acclaimed folk and jazz-based compositions have found their way into radio, TV, film, and theater productions. Sally Rogers is a performer and songwriter who sings and plays guitar, banjo, and mountain dulcimer. Reviewers describe her voice as “captivating” and “mesmerizing;” as one critic said, “it’s really next to impossible to do justice to a voice of that quality.” She performs traditional and original songs, and her 13 albums have been recognized with many awards including Parents’ Choice Gold. United by a sense of social justice, humanity, and harmony (both kinds), these two strong women of the folk world have kindled a deep friendship over the years, and their duo albums have become beloved classics. Don’t miss this rare chance to hear them live together. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Admission is $15, with discounts for members, seniors, youth, and children. The Community Hall is handicapped accessible. There is no charge for street parking after 6:00 p.m. More information is available by calling (508) 540-0320 or at www.arts-cape.com/whfolkmusic.
