Their concert program includes shape-note songs, and haunting folk ballads from the Appalachian mountains and the British Isles. The Georgian and Corsican songs are a mixture of sacred and secular pieces that demonstrate the incredible range of unique singing traditions from those countries. Each member has contributed songs from his or her particular area of musical knowledge and expertise, resulting in a dynamic and eclectic program that will delight world-music fans and lovers of choral performance.
The Starry Mountain Trio was born from the nine-voice ensemble, the Starry Mountain Singers, and performs a wide range of traditional music from around the United States and abroad. The group’s members are all lifelong musicians who share a deep love of traditional vocal styles and a dedication to studying and performing them. The Starry Mountain Trio members have all toured extensively with Northern Harmony and Village Harmony. In addition, trio members have worked with Meredith Monk and Revels Inc, and have participated in international recording projects of traditional Georgian music.
They have a CD called Starry Mountain Trio that was released May 2011
