Ukrainian Folk Songs and Their American Counterparts
Ukrainian Village Voices is excited to present Ukrainian Folk Songs and Their American Counterparts with Ethnomusicologist Brian Dolphin! In this workshop we will explore Ukrainian lyrical songs whose plots are so universal that the same songs exist in the British Isles and America. We will sing through the Ukrainian Polyphonic songs, their American and British counterparts, and discuss the far-flung connection between folk traditions. Come and bring your friends for some Folk Fun!
