Cindy Kallet and Grey Larsen in Concert
Cindy Kallet and Grey Larsen in Concert Saturday, Nov. 1, 8:00 pm 165 McGraw, Central Ave., Cornell Arts Quad, Ithaca Cindy Kallet and Grey Larsen are accomplished singers, composers, and formidable multi-instrumentalists (guitar, flute, tin whistle, fiddle, mountain dulcimer, melodeon, and concertina) with remarkable solo careers. As a duo, they're beautifully matched on songs and tunes that span traditional Irish, Scandinavian, Renaissance, Appalachian, and contemporary music. Its been five years since they last performed for the Cornell Folk Song Society, and a delight to have them back. Cindy Kallet's understated skill, intelligence, passion, and droll humor inform the songs that have evolved from her New England life as shanty-singer, clam-shucker, naturalist, parent, and perceptive world-watcher. She is both a realist and dreamer and a gentle protester and comic. Her mesmerizing alto, like the voice of her friend and collaborator Gordon Bok, has a sea-washed honesty. Her music is deep and intricate, clear and soulful. Scott Alarik of the Boston Globe calls her One of folk music's most respected songwriters...provocative, heartwise, and original...and a brilliant guitarist. Grey Larsen, flute and tin whistle, has been dazzling listeners since his years with Malcolm Dalglish, Pete Sutherland, and Martin Simpson in the group Metamora. Oberlin-trained, he plays with authenticity and beauty. He has revived the earlier, wilder Irish style of crooked tunes with extra beats. Fiddle virtuoso Seamus Connolly of Ireland says it is Refreshing to hear a true understanding of the soul of traditional Irish music in the playing of an American-born musician. For those who make music, Kallet has a songbook and Larsen has written the acclaimed Essential Guide to Irish Flute and Tin Whistle, dubbed by the Chieftains' Matt Molloy as required reading ...for anybody interested in getting it right. $15 advance/$17 door; $3 rebate for members, seniors, teens. Children free. Cornell students $5. Tickets: Ithaca Guitar Works, Autumn Leaves, Greenstar Market, Bound for Glory, online at and at the door. Info: web or 607-351-1845.
