Branford Folk Music Society Brings 'Sharp's Appalachian Harvest' Saturday Night


Zaretsky, Mark, New Haven Register (New Haven, CT)


BRANFORD » Brian Peters and Jeff Davis each have played the Branford Folk Music Society coffeehouse on their own in the past, but they're coming back together Saturday night to collaborate on "Sharp's Appalachian Harvest," a multimedia show focused on the folk songs that Cecil Sharp and Maud Karpeles collected in the Southern Appalachians a century ago.

Over three summers in 1916, 1917 and 1918, Sharp and Karpeles, two English folklorists, traveled deep into the mountains to seek out old British ballads still being sung in remote settlements. They gathered more than 1,600 pieces in what has been described as one of the greatest folk song collections ever assembled.

Showtime is 8 p.m. Saturday. It will take place in the auditorium of the First Congregational Church of Branford, 1009 Main St. on the Branford Green. Admission is $15 for the general public, $12 for society members, and $5 for children age 12 and under. Light refreshments will be available.
