Happy Autumn!  Outdoor gigs are at an end for this year, and the rest have either been cancelled or transmuted into live-streamed events.  October, the month of Celtic New Year/Halloween is important to us.  For a number of years we’ve played October concerts observing the spirit of this time of year.  We are certain that this year this observance will be even more needed and welcome.  We are doing two shows this year, one on Saturday, October 10, for Folknet in Cleveland, and another show that we will self-produce by Zoom on Halloween itself, Saturday, October 31.  We have decided that, since we have so much material for these events, we will not do many of the same songs for both shows – much of the variety that would come from a full two hour live concert.  Please feel free to attend one or both.

February Sky lives in the town of Trout Lake in Michigan's Upper Peninsula,  We are full time touring musicians - or we will be once the pandemic is over.  In the meantime, we will be live-streaming a number of events.  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
