A look at love through laughter and lyrics is coming to the Marshall Public Library.
On February 14 at 7:30 p.m., the library will play host to folk musicians Sharon and Bill Rossiter and their program, “The Bramble and the Rose.” The concert will feature takes on courtship, marriage, and our day-to-day life in love through traditional songs from America and the British Isles.
According to the artists, “Traditional songs often poke fun at our self-importance and our pettiness. For example, the bull-headed determination of a couple to outlast each other in a silent-treatment standoff is satirized in ‘Get up and Bar the Door.’ Hollywood and Tin Pan Alley have their own approaches to these issues, but tradition, especially in its satirical mode, has much to teach us that mass culture misses.”
During the show, Sharon sings while multi-instrumentalist Bill will accompany her with a guitar, banjo, Autoharp, mouthbow or harmonica.
The concert is free to the public. The program will last approximately an hour and will be held in the Minnie Howard Community Room.
