And here is the story on tickets:

It is a small venue so it does make sense to make advance ticket sales possible. But it doesn’t really make sense to sell tickets through a store because you will lose the savings in the surcharge, so I will do advance sales in 2 ways:

1. You can buy tickets from me when we see each other, such as at songcircles and contra dances, or you can arrange to meet up with me to do that. I work downtown so that is an option.

2. You can reserve tickets to pick up at the door for the advance price, if you PROMISE to actually come, and arrive by 7:45. After that, if necessary we will let those tickets go.

Either way, you can make arrangements by contacting me at maura dot volante at gmail dot com (I hope this way of writing it is readable by humans and not by bots).

I look forward to singing with you!


About Maura Volante

Maura Volante is a talented and experienced performer. Although she has written many songs over the years, her main focus these days is traditional folk songs. These are songs that have stood the test of time and have an enduring quality that speaks directly and clearly to the human experience. They also tell us about our history. Because these songs are not commonly sung in these post-folk-revival times in which folk music generally means singer-songwriter material, Maura has taken on the project of helping to keep this valuable material alive. Her specialty is Canadian folk songs, but she knows many songs from the British Isles and the USA as well. All her concerts and other programs are designed with group singing in mind. Whether in a concert, a tour, a social gathering, a classroom, a festival or a conference hall, Maura creates an encouraging atmosphere, relaxed and inclusive. She uses her strong voice and facilitation techniques to bring out the best possible music with these voices in this moment. Maura firmly believes that everyone can sing and, moreover, that everyone has a right to sing and be part of group singing activities, without judgement or criticism. No matter what the various skill levels of participants may be in any group singing activity, it always sounds good in a group, because the voices naturally attune with each other. Maura also teaches and calls contra dancing and simpler forms of traditional dancing suitable for all ages, often incorporating group singing into the dancing through the use of play party songs, which are sung by the whole group as they dance.

    I was at Come Sing last week when you spoke about the upcoming evening of Ballads and Sea Songs. Would you please hold two tickets for me. We can either arrange to meet prior (I am in town Monday evenings and Wednesday evenings) or I can pick them up at the door.
