This new trio crafts an evening out of originals, instrumentals and traditional songs. Harmonies blend three strong voices, paring down to just one when the story shifts shape. Donna’s fiddling morphs from light to dark, while Lui’s piano, banjo and ukulele converse fluently with Max’s guitar. Donna Hébert is a cultural treasure, a Franco-American fiddler and composer three-times documented in Smithsonian collections. Recognized in 2009 for “outstanding artistic achievement” by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, Donna founded and directs yearly participatory children’s performances at Old Songs and Philadelphia Folk Festivals and has appeared at Blackstone River Theatre with Chanterelle, the Panache Quartet, and Mist Covered Mountains. Donna has earned eight appointments as a master fiddler in the National Endowment’s Master-Apprenticeship program. Folk singer / songwriter Lui Collins has been on the scene for over 40 years, earning international acclaim for her music. The Boston Herald called Collins “a folksinger for our times” and the Boston Globe adds “one of New England’s first and brightest stars.” An accomplished guitarist, Max Cohen balances tremendous sensitivity with driving rhythmic power. Known for his work with Priscilla Herdman, Max is one of those rare guitarists able to create an atmosphere that supports and cradles vocals with both tenderness and strength.
