Happy New Year!
We are starting a little late this month due
to a wonderful but exhausting month playing with the Bittersweet Christmas
We are very happy to report that our annual concert sponsored by the Geneva
Park District will be back at the Unitarian Universalist Society of Geneva and
will be in person! For our monthly
in-the-round Zoom house concert, we will share the virtual stage with the
wonderful eclectic folk duo Ashley and Simpson.
If you have never heard them before, we are sure you will enjoy their
brilliant handling of a wondrous variety of music.
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
generous people who like each other lots. --Joanne Laessig, Folknet,
