About our fabulous musicians:
Chris Koldewey sings work-songs from the days of sail, songs of love and parting, ballads and story songs of the supernatural, and songs our forebears might have sung “just for the fun of it.” Each song carries with it the stories of its origins, meanings contained therein, or significance as it relates to contemporary issues. These stories connect us to our past, and thereby to who we are today. These are the stories of those who came before, built and nurtured their families and their country, and who left some of those stories in their music.
Chris uses skills learned as a Public School music teacher and interpreter at Mystic Seaport Museum to engage with audiences, and invite them to participate during concerts in the hopes of making the music more their own.
Becky Wright and Nicole Singer started singing together at Swarthmore College over a decade ago and have been dear friends, music partners, and roadtrip buddies ever since. With Becky’s background in shape-note music and Nicole’s in sea music, they wind up singing a variety of old songs with haunting harmonies, beautiful poetry, and fun choruses that get everyone singing along. They have also collaborated on many other projects, including as co-founders and organizers of Youth Traditional Song Weekend. Their first duo record, Two in a Garden, was released this summer and is available at beckyandnicole.bandcamp.com.
