The Starry Mountain Trio
(Avery Book, Gideon Crevoshay and Suzannah Park) was born from the nine voice ensemble, The Starry Mountain Singers. The trio specializes in four genres: traditional polyphonic singing from Corsica and from the Republic of Georgia, ballads from the British Isles and Appalachia, and shape-note music. The three met in the late '90s as teenagers while singing and touring with the Vermont-based Village Harmony, and in subsequent tours with the groups professional touring ensemble, Northern Harmony. They are each now lifelong musicians with a deep love of studying, teaching, and performing traditional vocal styles. Each member of the trio has contributed songs from her or his particular area of musical knowledge and expertise, resulting in a dynamic and eclectic program that will delight traditional music fans.

About the Starry Mountain Singers, folk musician Pete Sutherland raved, "Everyone needs to make time to get the hell outta the house and hear this rockin' bunch - your molecules WILL be rearranged."
