With a voice that blends Celtic and Appalachian styles, Debra Cowan performs a cappella and with guitar, interpreting a wide range of traditional and contemporary folksongs. Her performances give listeners old and new story-songs, reflecting human experiences – and sometimes offering short, comedic ditties – all the while encouraging the audience to join in on choruses and refrains.
