February Sky is traditional singer and Celtic guitarist Phil
Cooper with songwriter and singer Susan Urban.
Phil sings and plays his own arrangements of traditional songs and tunes
on six string guitar and cittern, and he also interprets a number of carefully
chosen songs from the best of modern Folk song writers, as well as backing
Susan up on her songs. Susan Urban is a
writer of story songs and humorous "slice of life" songs. She accompanies her
songs, plus Phil’s songs
and tunes, on six and 12-string guitar, six string banjo, mountain dulcimer,
hand percussion instruments and Native American Style flute. Phil
and Susan present a combination of old and new songs addressing the widest
possible range of experience, complete with vocal harmony, intricate
instrumentation and thoughtful stagecraft.
They believe that Folk Music is a continuum - whether the songs are
self-penned or have a history thousands of years old, as long as they speak to
the human condition and the human heart, they carry on the Folk Music
