Folk Songs to the Guitar

Concerts at the UUCC Series

Unitarian Universalist Community Church,

69 Winthrop St, Augusta, Maine

Joelle Concert April 8 2018-page-001

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 selections of 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.  FacebookEvent: https://www.facebook.com/events/701060630284464/
