moira smiley & VOCO is a visionary blend of voices - redefining harmony singing with the power & physicality of folksong, the avant-garde fearlessness of Béla Bartók and delicious, vaudevillian accompaniment of cello, banjo, ukelele, accordion and body percussion. Moira Smiley's award-winning original music and spell-binding American and East European folksong light up the stage with rompin' stompin' body percussion and warm wit. Named #1 a cappella group in the U.S. in 2007, moira smiley & VOCO is the energy of street singing and the elegance of a string quartet. Expect magnificent, hair-raising performances music that mourns and dances at the same time.
