Holiday Folk Concert w/ Burke/Surette/Allyn

Pepperell Rd.

Three of New England’s finest present an evening of holiday music and folk favorites, as the duo of Susie Burke and David Surette join with sideman extraordinaire Kent Allyn to bring their popular Christmas folk concert to several venues throughout the Seacoast. The concerts will feature a number of selections from their holiday CD release Wonderland, along with folk and acoustic fare from their standard repertoire. With influences and styles ranging from folk to jazz, Celtic to rock, blues to Broadway and beyond, this trio presents the seasonal repertoire with heart, flair and energy.

Of their holiday CD, Boston Globe music writer Scott Alarik says, “Wonderland is a wintry gem, elegant as a Manhattan midnight, bewitching as hot buttered rum, and as warm and folksy as your grandmother’s old quilt. The trio moves gracefully among pop chestnuts, new songs, and ancient carols. Surette’s playing on guitar, mandolin, and cittern, is a marvel of melodic purity and ribbon-candy chordal color, lightly augmented by Allyn’s quicksilver piano. Burke’s twilight mezzo always puts melody before mechanics and heart before dazzle.”
