Sue Kranz & Paul Kaplan will highlight April 3 Song & Story Swap
Please come share in an evening of music and stories at the Pioneer Valley Folklore Society Song & Story Swap.
Saturday, April 3, 7:00 p.m. at the The Nacul Center, 592 Main St., Amherst, Mass (see map).
Guest performers at the April 3 Song & Story Swap will be folksinger-songwriters Sue Kranz & Paul Kaplan, who are joining forces based on their mutual respect and amazingly similar musical tastes and sensibility.
An elementary school Spanish teacher by profession, she uses music to build a sense of community as well as a teaching tool. She has recently moved to Western Massachusetts from Boston where she taught in the Cambridge Schools for over 20 years. She is a member of the 6 woman performing group Constellations, and has three recordings including Long Past the Hour, a collection of original songs.
Paul Kaplan's involvement with the singer-songwriter movement was sparked by his early love of the songs of Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs and Tom Paxton. He pursued that love as a frequent attendee at the Songwriters’ Exchange at the Cornelia Street Cafe, in New York, and as a regular contributor to The Fast Folk Musical Magazine, in which ten of his songs were included. In the late 1970s, Paul had the opportunity to produce three posthumous albums by one of his heroes, Phil Ochs.
The theme this month is Luck
