22nd May – Sara Grey and Kieron Means

Sara Grey is a fine American singer, banjo player and song collector. She’s immersed in the song traditions of both sides of the Atlantic. She has performed throughout the UK, Europe, North America, and Australia for the past 50 years.

Kieron Means is a singer and guitar player of great merit. He was born in the United States and grew up in Britain with the music of both traditions. He is a fine performer of traditional and contemporary songs. He has toured in the States, UK, and often performed with his mother, Sara Grey.

Sara Says:”We perform from a wide range of American traditions including old-time songs and ballads from the Appalachians, Ozarks, New England and the West, blues and gospel music as well as a few of our favourite written songs. The passage of songs from Great Britain and Ireland to America is of particular interest to us. A good deal of our material is the American versions that have travelled, though a song or two from Britain will no doubt be sung. It is our aim during the evening to encourage our audience to join us in singing the chorus of many of our songs.
