The Work O' the Weaver's
Way more than a cover band the work of the Weavers combine a number of Weavers evergreens with newer songs the Weavers might be singing today. Some are originals, some borrowed from friends, and a couple are by former Weavers themselves. All work together to create an amalgam underscoring the musical capabilities and direction of Work o’ the Weavers as something much more than simply a tribute band, but rather a group intent on picking up the torch and carrying on the musical tradition and intentionality the Weavers originated some sixty years ago.
o’ the Weavers succeeds admirably in covering Weavers’
tunes. The vocal harmonies are beautiful, and eerily reminiscent of
the originals on nearly every track. The group wisely maintains political
relevance by alluding to current issues that the Weavers would have
sung about. If you…are a fan of The Weavers, and want to hear
chestnuts and new songs that have been recorded beautifully, you will
want to add We’re Still Here to the CD collection.”
rich voices, with harmonies which capture the original sound of the
Weavers in almost eerie fashion. An excellent CD.”
Rowan Cunningham Band
Chris and Lorin Rowan were born and raised near Boston, Massachusetts where their brother Peter was already making a name for himself in Earth Opera. All three brothers played in folk, bluegrass and pop bands. In the early ‘70s, through their brother’s connection, Chris and Lorin got hooked up with aspiring producer and instrumental wizard David Grisman. Before long, Chris and Lorin along with Grisman moved to “where it was happening” San Francisco, and they still reside there today.
Sue Cunningham was raised in a musical family and has been involved with music since she was five years old. She is also a practicing engineer and holds a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. Through her performances and recordings with the international touring band Hickory Project and others, combined with her unique education in classical music, Sue has gained national recognition as a fiddler and fiddle instructor. She was an eight-year member of the South Ocean String Band (West Palm Beach, FL), a former member of the White Sands Panhandle Band (Pensacola, FL), prior to founding Hickory Project in January 2000. She is a three-time Florida Bluegrass Fiddle Champion and has co-written many of the Hickory Project’s songs.

Luke Halpin and Stephanie Bettman
Stephanie Bettman is at the least a triple threat. An accomplished writer, singer, and fiddler: her lyrics are infused with wit and wisdom, poetry and insight.. Her fiddling, which combines elements of bluegrass and jazz, is filled with influences from such masters as Stephane Grappelli, Byron Berline and Johnny Gimble. A former actress and trapeze artist, Ms Bettman is at ease in front of an audience and creates intimacy with her crowd no matter the size.
Luke Halpin is a renowned multi-instrumentalist. A master of the guitar and the mandolin, impressive on fiddle, banjo, and adept at nearly anything he picks up. A dynamic and sensitive vocalist himself, the harmony blend he and Ms Bettman achieve is chilling and at times simply transcendent. His quirky sense of humor is a perfect foil to Stephanie’s dry witty presence.
As a duo,
Bettman & Halpin are fast earning a reputation for hypnotizing
performances filled with irresistible lyrics, transcendent harmonies
and roof-raising instrumentals. Their music creates a fully acoustic,
delightfully eclectic sound far greater than the sum of its parts:
taking the listener from up-tempo down home fiddlin’, to soulful
sorrowful ballads, to super hooky folk/pop with catchy melodies and
lyrics that will stick with you long after the concert is over. Touring
together since 2008, Bettman & Halpin
