Big Woods Voices

October 21, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

A two-in-one concert celebration of a new CD, Big Woods Voices: Poetry in Harmony, and Becky Graber’s songbook, All I Need is Here, Is scheduled Friday, October 21, at the Brattleboro Music Center.

The concert is set for 7:30 p.m. Tickets are on a sliding scale, $10 to $25, at the door, and are available on the BMC website – bmcvt.org – or by calling 802-257-4523.

Big Woods Voices celebrates a cappella vocal harmony through arrangements grown from American roots genres, world folk styles, poets old and new, and Will Danforth’s deep creative well. From heart-stopping to foot-stomping, prayerful to fun-filled, dissonant to dulcet, Big Woods Voices brings the spirit of southern Vermont to life through rich harmonies and soulful interpretations.

This concert celebrates the release of a forthcoming CD, Big Woods Voices: Poetry in Harmony, featuring Will Danforth’s beautiful musical arrangements of poems. The Voices (from high to low) are Amanda Witman, founder of the Brattleboro Pub Sing; Becky Graber, director of the Brattleboro Women’s Chorus; Will Danforth, an award-winning, multi-instrumental solo acoustic artist; and Alan Blood, long-time member of area groups, such as the Blanche Moyse Chorale, I Cantori, Blue Moon, and House Blend.

During the evening, Becky Graber will be joined by her daughter, Sarah Ellis, to sing a handful of songs from her new songbook, All I Need Is Here. Graber’s songbook is a collection of 31 songs for group singing: some layer songs, some solos, and many songs for treble ensemble singing. The songbook will be available in print and online at https://beckygraber.com.
