February Sky offers a cure for the winter blues with an evening of folk music at 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27, at the Unitarian Universalist Society of Geneva, 110 S. Second St., Geneva.
February Sky specializes in traditional ballad and Celtic tunes from England, Ireland, Scotland, and original songs.
February Sky is a folk group consisting of a traditional singer and Celtic guitarist Phil Cooper with songwriter and singer Susan Urban. Cooper sings and plays his own arrangements of traditional songs and tunes on six string guitar and cittern. He also interprets a number of carefully chosen songs from the best of modern folk songwriters and backs up Urban on her songs.
Urban is a writer of story songs and humorous "Slice of Life" songs. She accompanies her songs, plus Cooper's songs, on six and 12-string guitar, six string banjo, mountain dulcimer, and hand percussion instruments.
Violinist and mandolin player Joe Wadz will join February Sky for this performance.
The show is free and sponsored by the Geneva Park District. For information, call (630) 232-4542 or visit genevaparks.org.
