Traditional Folk Ballad Sing
Friday, October 27, 6:30-8:00 PM
Dr. Kaung's Salon and the Folklore Society of Greater Washington present a Traditional a Capella Ballad Sing hosted by singer and folklorist Lisa Null.
Lisa has performed in festivals and concerts throughout North America and Great Britain including Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion. Of all the songs she sings, none are more precious to her than the old story songs passed on for centuries through oral tradition. She will be singing some of her favorites, mostly old but also a few newer ones created in the old style. Come to listen, to sing on refrains, or to share a few of your favorites. Because of Halloween, ghostly ballads are particularly welcome. Admission is free.
