Cranberry Coffeehouse

Sally Rogers and Howie Bursen. Sally performs an evening of traditional, contemporary and original ballads and song, interwoven with stories taken from her life as a performer, wife, and mother. Throughout her concerts, she accompanies herself on guitar and Appalachian dulcimer, or performs without accompaniment in a voice that needs no further enhancement. Reviewers have described her voice in superlatives ranging from “remarkable” to “mesmerizing.” Much of the material performed by Sally includes compositions of her own; many are considered classics of the folk and popular genre. Howie Bursen is a world renowned banjo player and all around wonderful musician. His style is unique, creative, and nothing short of virtuosic. His background in folk music spans decades, is deep and expansive, and when combined with his warm, inviting performances makes for an evening that is an enjoyment on so many levels. Sally and Howie harmonize with elegance and ease, creating beautiful timbres with unparalleled energy. The combination of these two wonderful musicians will make for a delightful evening of traditional and contemporary music.
