Bright Morning Star (Court Dorsey, Cheryl

Giles, Charlie King, Marcia Taylor and Laura
North America from 1978 - 1990 mixing folk, country, blues, jazz and a
good dose of theater. Almost 20 years later they're back, re-grouped
with two decades of individual performance experience under their
collective belt, livelier and more astute then ever. They combine their
musical and theatrical skills in a journey through the worlds of drama,
politics, people, humor, satire, and spirituality. Their songs are a
rare combination of powerful, often original lyrics and rich melodies
that shine in intricate harmonies. In the course of a concert, they
pass around guitars, fiddle, bass, banjo, harmonica, recorder,
trombone, piano and the occasional kazoo. Their cabaret style adds a
comic irony to traditional songs and a surprising depth to contemporary
pieces. Bright Morning Star performances are dancingly interpreted by
signer Laura Kolb.
Eve was born in
the Boston area but has called Toronto, Ontario home since 1981. Her
watercolour voice and solid guitar style has become a favourite at
festivals, folk clubs, and concert series across Canada and the US.
With an equal passion for traditional music, and for the art of
songwriting and interpretation, Eve's performances are intimate and
relaxed, moving effortlessly from folk classics to original gems, all
wrapped up in her clear, pure voice and dynamic guitar playing.
