  Hickory Ridge Concert Series: Curtis and Loretta Return to Dickson Mounds   

Hickory Ridge Concert Series: Curtis and Loretta Return to Dickson Mounds

  • Location: ISM Dickson Mounds Museum, Lewistown
  • Date: Saturday, February 15, 2014, 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Award winning folk duo Curtis and Loretta will return to the Hickory Ridge Concert Series this Saturday, February 15, 2014 at 7:30 pm for a captivating evening of finely honed vocal harmonies, abundant talent on an array of stringed instruments, deep traditional roots music and great originals.  Seventy-three strings and two voices deliver an enchanting evening of contemporary original songs, traditional Celtic ballads, old-time American songs, and more.

The glue that holds all this together is their magical harmonies, and their skill on a parade of stringed instruments, from Celtic harp and mandocello, to steel ukulele and kazoo, to mandolin, guitar, and clawhammer banjo. And if all that is the glue, the banter and stories in between songs are the super glue! Their charming stage presence is a product of nearly thirty years of living together - on the stage, and as husband and wife.

Curtis & Loretta revel in writing songs about the heroism and integrity of real-life, ordinary people (who turn out to be extraordinary!) The traditional sound of their original compositions has its roots in the Celtic and American songs they revive, always ones that hold timeless, universal messages.

These modern day troubadours rack up 40,000 miles a year on their van, crisscrossing the country from Miami to Seattle, from New York to California. They recently performed at the Chinquapin Folk Festival in Peoria.
