Songs and Stories
Danaher and Cloud
Friday, November 30, 8 :00 pm, Kennett Friends Meetinghouse
Danaher & Cloud believe that in every life there is a story, and in every story there is a song. Their roots and inspiration are rich and diverse, from Irish master storyteller Eamon Kelly to country music's legendary Marty Stuart. Original songs from their award-winning recordings intermingle with an eclectic repertoire of Americana music and just plain funny stories of everyman and everywoman, played with mastery on a variety of instruments and sung brilliantly from the heart. You start with Amy Cloud's insightful and adept songwriting, her haunting melodies and stylistic diversity. Add Kate Danaher's unconventional artistry on the violin or viola, and Amy's solid rhythmic anchor on her ever-growing collection of instruments. Add their vocals, a blend rich and refined, but still soulful. It could be called Americana music. But then add their stories and their banter. And what you have is an experience like no other, in concert or on record, where each story, each song, is a journey unto itself. They performed for Hadley in January 2009.
