Dan and Bonnie Milner sing traditional Irish, Irish-American and maritime songs solo and in unaccompanied harmony. Dan, a geography professor and world traveler, grew up in a singing Irish family in Birmingham England, Ballybunion, Ireland and Brooklyn, New York. His Smithsonian Folkways CD, Irish Pirates Ballads, received 2 Indie Award nominations in 2011. Bonnie's interest in sea songs was sparked by hearing shanties sung at Mystic Seaport in Connecticut, and carried further by her friendship with the last working shantyman, Stan Hugill. She is a member of the renowned, all-woman quartet, The Johnson Girls. Dan and Bonnie have toured extensively in Europe and North America.
This concert of unaccompanied traditional song will also feature performances by local singers.
