Valley Folk: Finest Kind
Drake House Studio Theater
May 18  7:30 PM

Finest Kind's vocal arrangements are a creative tour de force. Tradition-based yet curiously modern, the trio's harmonies are an enchanting feast of opulent chords and ever changing textures. When speaking of this trio's amazing vocal blend, one reviewer said: "Any closer, and they wouldn't be allowed to do it in public."

Finest Kind is the remarkable folk trio from Ottawa, Canada whose exquisite harmony singing and brilliant vocal arrangements are bringing a fresh sense of excitement and discovery to the performance of old songs. The trio's glorious sound, served up with easy-going humour, has won a devoted following across North America.

The audience will also be treated to a 20 minute opening act of Hope Grietzer, Rick Manning & Tom Hodgson. This trio of veteran musicians from the Ithaca area is especially admired for their fiddle virtuosity, and for having tasteful and solid rhythm accompaniment to tunes from the Old Time, New England, Celtic, and Western Swing music traditions.
