Big Woods Voices Benefit

April 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Big Woods Voices unites four veteran area singers in celebrating their common passion for a cappella harmony: Alan Blood, long-time member of area groups including the Blanche Moyse Chorale, I Cantori, Blue Moon and House Blend; Will Danforth, singer-songwriter, traditional acoustic artist, and the group’s arranger/composer; Becky Graber, leader of the Brattleboro Women’s Chorus and Animaterra Women’s Chorus in Keene; and Amanda Witman, founder and co-leader of the Brattleboro Pub Sing with Tony Barrand.

Reveling in vocal harmony, Big Woods Voices marries singing traditions from around the world with various American roots genres. Danforth concocts original compositions and arrangements in which harmony and dissonance dance in riveting yet accessible soundscapes. Imagine lyrical settings of poetry by David Whyte, Mary Oliver, W. B. Yeats, and others; richly-harmonized standards of the American roots lexicon; and completely original compositions. Add to that gems by musicians such as Pete Sutherland, The Finest Kind, and the Stanley Brothers, and you have the ear-thrilling experience called Big Woods Voices.
