Copulent Harmonies of IHW
- Eighteen Bay Area singers have gotten together to record a collection of
chorus songs from the American and British Isles traditions. The CD is
called "In Harmony's Way <http:/www.inharmonysway.com>." The project
seeks to document the rich local heritage of a cappella singing, and to
share these wonderful songs with a greater audience. The rehearsal,
recording process and concert are being filmed by El Mundo Bueno Studios
<http://www.embstudios.com/> for a documentary on the Bay Area folk
Participants of "In Harmony’s Way" are Richard Adrianowicz, Steve
Baughman, Michael and Shay Black, Susan Frank, Sylvia Herold, Lani
Herrmann, Holdstock and MacLeod, Kim Hughes, Arlene Immerman, Peter
Kasin, Oak Ash & Thorn, Riggy Rackin, Ed Silberman and Pam Swan.
The project celebrates its culmination in a rousing evening of song
where the audience is invited to join in as much as they wish. So come
support Bay Area traditional music and lift your voices with your
friends and neighbors of "In Harmony’s Way" at 8:00 pm on July 8th at
the Freight and Salvage Coffee House in Berkeley. Tickets available at
the Freight or via their website, http://www.thefreight.org/ Tickets
are going fast.

misinformed (and mercifully brief) article about us in the East Bay
