The Vox Hunters and Sally Rogers & Howie Bursen

Join us via Zoom for FSGW’s opening concert of the pandemic year. We’ll have an opportunity to listen to great performers, interact with them, and visit with each other.

The Vox Hunters (Benedict Gagliardi and Armand Aromin) hail from the great state of Rhode Island. They are seekers and singers of old songs, cultivators of local music, and chronic multi-instrumentalists. They are touted as strong tradition-bearers in their generation, and their genuine affinity for the music is evident in the emotion they draw from it. With a pair of oft-harmonizing voices tastefully garnished with fiddle, free-reeds, and tenor guitar, The Vox Hunters offer an all-natural connection to the living tradition of folk music.

Sally Rogers and Howie Bursen live not too far across the state line in Connecticut. They have been a performing duo since they met in 1981 in a Greenwich Village coffeehouse. They play both traditional American and original songs and tunes. Sally is widely known for her songwriting and her crystal clear voice. She accompanies herself with guitar, banjo and mountain dulcimer. Howie is recognized as one of the top melodic clawhammer banjo players in the nation, although recently, he’s become an amazing piano player. Together, these two sing in comforting harmonies with just the right amount of instrumental spice. 

Cost to register: free; Suggested donation: $20 per listener. (If you feel generous and can afford it, a higher amount will help support the performers.)
