Sara Grey and Anita Best: Balladeers

May 2 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Free
  • Enjoy a magical evening with two powerful ballad singers who are steeped in traditional culture.

    Sara Grey grew up in New Hampshire, lived in Britain for 46 years (mostly in Scotland, and most memorably on the Isle of Skye), and now resides in Maine. Sara collects material from the US, the UK, and Ireland. She sings powerfully from her enormous repertoire, either a cappella or accompanying herself with her banjo.

    Anita Best is a source singer of traditional songs from Newfoundland and Canada (especially the Maritime Provinces). She grew up on Merasheen Island in Placentia Bay, where she, her family, and friends were part of a rich singing community.
