The Alison Brown Quartet and Anna Coogan are scheduled to perform on Friday, January 14th at 8pm at Celtic Connections 2011.
Venturing far and wide from her instrument’s hillbilly roots, U.S. banjo virtuoso Alison Brown has staked out her own unique musical territory, where bluegrass, jazz, Celtic, Latin, swing and ragtime influences meet in seamless, ultra-sophisticated harmony. Her latest studio tour de force is 2009’s The Company You Keep, material from which features here along with older favorites.
Alison Brown recordings available:
- In North America: The Company You Keep, Stolen Moments, Alison Brown Quartet – Live at Blair with Joe Craven, Quartet, Best Of The Vanguard Years, Fair Weather, Evergreen, Replay, Look Left, Twilight Motel, Out of the Blue
- In Europe: Company You Keep, Stolen Moments, Fair Weather, Replay, Out of the Blue, Evergreen, Look Left, The Alison Brown Quartet, Twilight Motel
A one-time trainee opera singer who converted to old-time Americana, American singer Anna Coogan matches her gorgeously dulcet voice with bewitching country-folk balladry.
Anna Coogan recordings available:
- In North America: The Nocturnal Among Us, Sleepwalker, Glory, Lonesome Cowboy Lullaby
- In Europe: Sleepwalker, Glory, Lonesome Cowboy Lullaby
