Folk Songs to the Guitar
Concerts at the UUCC Series
Unitarian Universalist Community Church,
69 Winthrop St, Augusta, Maine
For centuries, the guitar has been an instrument intimately associated with the human voice. Though the ‘folk song’ is usually seen as a popular genre, it occasionally has been raised to the level of art song, and three such sets are featured in this concert. Mezzo-soprano Joëlle Morris and guitarist Timothy Burris will perform Manuel da Falla’s “Siete Canciones populares españolas” (1914); Matyas Seiber’s “Four French Folk Songs” (1959); and Benjamin Britten’s “Folksong Arrangements” (1961). Guitar solos by Miguel Llobet and Daniel Fortea fill out the program.
Tickets: $10 followed by a reception
