Although November is a month that many people think of as something to be gotten through, rather than savored and enjoyed, those of us who are lucky enough to live in the Northland have the last of the brilliant Autumn to enjoy, with the last of the colored leaves and the flaming tamarack trees.

On Friday, November 11th, we will present the next in our series of Zoom “house concerts,” with Andrew Calhoun.  We had a great time working with him in September 2021, and are looking forward to doing it again. 

This month also includes the start of Bittersweet Christmas Band season on November 27th.  We WILL be playing in our full band configuration with Kate Early and Margaret Nelson again this year.  We have a few more gigs yet to be confirmed, but the 2022 Bittersweet schedule will be posted shortly at 

February Sky lives in the town of Trout Lake in Michigan's Upper Peninsula,  We are full time touring musicians. Apparently the pandemic is largely over, but we are still live-streaming concerts with geographically distant artists, as well as playing live concerts.  Please check out our appearances for details.

"I've had the delight of watching two long time friends and musicians grow a duo. I've listened to Phil Cooper for years as part of a duo/trio/ensemble, with singing partner Margaret Nelson as the constant through all those years. Phil's darlin’ Susan wrote wonderful songs, sang wacky and ribald songs she'd found elsewhere and became an ever more deft musician through those years. Now they're a duo - February Sky - and the combination of Phil's incredible repertoire of very traditional song and tune and Susan's singer-songwriter orientation and addition of her skill with other instruments have been blended into something very different than what either had done before. Same songs, or tunes from previous repertoires... but whole different flavor. Each time I see them, what they do gets tighter, deeper, more distinctive.   'Course it helps that both are thoughtful, generous people who like each other lots.   --Joanne Laessig,  Folknet, Cleveland, OH
