HAWLEY -  On Saturday, April 26th Jean Rohe, a “sure-footed songwriter” (NYTimes) and explorer of world music returns to the Hawley Silk Mill with one of Scotland’s most accomplished and unique harpists, Maeve Gilchrist.
     Improvisation, textural adventurousness and quality songwriting is the foundation of their combined songwriting; creating unique vibrations as world influences combine with Maeve’s purposeful harp playing. Telling of their versatility, they met while performing a contemporary classical music score as part of the Next Wave Festival at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, but both have their roots in folk traditions and were trained as improvisers. For this show, on the occasion of Hawley Earth Fest and the return of spring, they present songs full of nature imagery, culled from their own writing, traditional repertoire, and the collections of some of their favorite songwriters.
    The show begins at 7:30 p.m.
    Harmony Presents concerts and shows take place in the underground theater of the Hawley Silk Mill located at 8 Silk Mill Drive in Hawley, PA. The theater is also known as the Boiler Room, since it was indeed once, the actual Boiler Room of the Hawley Silk Mill. The theater overlooks the falls shared with Ledges Hotel and audiences are encouraged to arrive early for preferred seating.
