STELLARIA SPRING SING!
Saturday, March 21, 7 - 9 pm
Stellaria will perform a few of our songs at the beginning of the evening, and then lead everyone in singing songs by Cynthia and others, to celebrate the arrival of Spring! Sandra Brooks-Mathers (of Pomegranate Rose) will join us in leading rounds and adding harmonies for our sing-along.
Stellaria is a women's duo performing original, sacred, lively, and heartfelt music. Cynthia Crossen and Lea Clayton blend their voices in angelic harmonies, a capella or accompanied by various combinations of guitar, banjo, piano, flute, and percussion.
Cynthia has shared her original songs in the Triangle area since the mid-1970's in various venues from coffeehouses to concert halls, bringing her music to the community at births, weddings, and funerals. Lea has also performed widely in the area, including with the Haw River Learning Celebration and Paperhand Puppet Intervention.
Stellaria sings for compassion, community, connection, the sacredness of our earth, kindness to each other, and the recognition of women's voices.
