The Starry Mountain Singers are coming back to DC, this time to St Stephen's Church at 16th & Newton for just one night. I saw them perform the past few times they were in town at the Church of the Holy City and really enjoyed the concert. Read more about the band of their website.

"Shapenote songs, powerful gospel numbers, cowboy songs, haunting folk tunes, folk songs and sacred chants from the Republic of Georgia and Corsica, Early Music!"

The Starry Mountain Singers are: Stefan Amidon, Zara Bode, Avery Book, Gideon Crevoshay, Jeff Fellinger, Emily Miller, Nathan Morrison, & Suzannah Park.

The musical program features traditional songs from the United States, Europe and Caucasus Georgia. The American repertoire includes shape-note songs (a traditional New England song style), powerful gospel numbers, cowboy songs, and haunting folk tunes from the Appalachians. Songs from Corsica and Georgia provide a mixture of sacred and secular pieces that demonstrate the incredible range of unique singing traditions from those countries. This year's program also includes a diverse set of early music. Each member has contributed songs from his or her particular area of musical knowledge and expertise. The result is a dynamic and eclectic program that will delight all who enjoy performances of unique and energetic flavor.
