Seattle Folklore Society concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Phinney Neighborhood Center, in the Brick Building. Hanz Araki, Kathryn Claire and the Celtic Conspiracy celebrate their new CD, “Songs of Love and Murder.”
The murder ballad is a mainstay of the folk idiom in many cultures, perfected in Scotland, Ireland and England long, long ago. From the humorous to the Shakespearean to the downright macabre; with pen-knifes and swords, by hanging or drowning, Songs of Love and Murder is a collection of traditional love songs with stories tragic, beautiful, and sometimes gruesome — as well as a few dance tunes (jigs and reels with some rather grisly titles) to keep your feet stomping.
