Rock Tavern Chapter: Storm King Skyline
November 13, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
The Rock Tavern Chapter of the Hudson Valley Folk Guild is pleased to be featuring Storm King Skyline: Kevin & Carol Becker, Rich Keyes, and Ken Sheehan.
Start with deep roots in traditional folk music, add musical versatility, mix in both historical and contemporary themes, all seasoned with a healthy dose of good-natured humor, then enjoy a performance by Storm King Skyline.
A newly formed musical group, Storm King Skyline has developed a unique sound that combines breathtaking vocals, instrumental dexterity, and a synergy that comes only from an intimate knowledge of each other’s talents. That sound starts with Kevin’s intricate finger picked guitar, augmented by his impeccable harmonica playing. Carol’s soaring vocals – clear, bright, and pure, stand out when singing solo and form compelling harmonies with Kevin and Ken’s baritone voices. Ken adds the skillful touch of a virtuoso on guitar and the sound is all anchored by Rich’s solid rhythms on upright bass and his driving bluegrass-influenced banjo. They feature other instruments as well, notably mountain dulcimer, recorder, bodhran, Appalachian limber horse, and various whistles. Their repertoire ranges from historical ballads to songs of social significance and from traditional folk songs to the original songs of the band members. Storm King Skyline has easy an manner and relaxed stage presence which encourages audience participation and contributes to their entertaining performances.
