- Illinois State Museum, Springfield
A special Holiday concert from our good friends Curtis and Loretta. Their music comes straight from the heart. This husband and wife duo’s extraordinary harmonies on stringed instruments of all kinds frame both their poignant original songs and traditional pieces from America and the British Isles. Whether it be on the mandocello, folk harp, ukulele, mandolin, harmonica, or kazoo they deliver their own unique brand of folk singer/songwriter music to the delight of their audience. Curtis’ down-home sense of humor and Loretta’s theater background engage the audience in an experience that runs the gamut of rolling with laughter to holding back tears, with plenty of side-trips in between.
