“A Harvest of Songs and Stories” Free Concert at the Gloucester Unitarian Universalist Church Saturday, November 19 at 3:00 PM
Mother and son acapella duo Rose Sheehan and Colin de la Barre of Gloucester, MA will sing songs and tell stories from folk traditions in celebration of the Fall and Harvest Time on Saturday, November 19, 2016 from 3:00 to 4:00 PM at the Gloucester Unitarian Universalist Church. The church is located at the corner of Middle and Church Streets in Gloucester, MA. The main entrance is through the front doors of the church. An accessible entrance is at 10 Church Street. Admission is free.
Rose Sheehan, a life-long native of Massachusetts, grew up enjoying music of all genres, singing in church and school choirs. In the late 1970’s, she became enthralled with traditional music. Soon after settling in Boston, she starting performing throughout the Northeast region at coffeehouses and small taverns including the Nameless Coffeehouse, Cambridge, the Pressroom, NH, the Thirsty Whale, ME and Fiddler’s Green, Toronto. She studied vocal technique with Anabel Graetz and Frankie Armstrong and performed as a solo vocalist with the Revels in the early 1980’s.
Colin de la Barre was raised in a musical household. He demonstrated his talent for music and rhythm as a very young child, dancing before he could speak. He played fiddle during his middle childhood years, easily picking up tunes by ear. When asked, Colin says he began singing with his mom in his late teens. Rose asserts that they’ve been “singing together since before he was born!”
As a duo, Rose and Colin are well known for their inspired harmonies and rich blend of familial voices.
They have appeared together at venues including the Mystic Sea Music Festival, the Portsmouth Maritime Folk Festival, the Indian Neck Folk Festival, the New England Folk Festival, coffeehouses and house concerts.
In 2014 they were selected as juried showcase performers for the North East Regional Folk Alliance Conference in Kerhonkson, NY.

The mid-point between the equinox and the solstice is the cross quarter day, traditionally observed as a fire festival. A lantern walk marks the end of autumn and the start of winter. We carry light into the darkening days with hope for the renewed light to come.
Come make a lantern on Friday afternoon or Saturday morning.
Come join in community to carry the light in a Lantern Walk on Saturday afternoon.
“Each of us is one small light, but together we shine bright!”
