Åarhus Gallery, 50 Main St., will host present musical talents Suzannah Park and Nathan Morrison for a two-hour workshop plus a one-hour concert Sunday, April 25. The workshop will begin at 2 p.m. and the concert at 5 p.m.

These two young singers of Village Harmony fame stretch the boundaries of traditional music with their command of various ethnic singing styles. Their concert program and workshops include traditional and contemporary American shape note songs; Appalachian and gospel harmonies; early American swing; and traditional sacred and secular songs from Caucasus Georgia, Bosnia and Bulgaria, as well as South African songs and dances. Performing primarily a cappella, the couple accompanies some numbers with guitar, banjo or piano.

Park and Morrison first joined their musical talents more than 12 years ago in the group Northern Harmony, a singing group based in Vermont. They currently live in Asheville, N.C. and are spending this spring touring the West and East coasts.

Park comes from a family of three generations of traditional musicians and storytellers and has been performing for most of her life. Her mother, the respected local musician Jennifer Armstrong, lives in Belfast. Park has taught singing for many years and, for the past nine at Village Harmony camps, has been one of the most popular teachers. She recently has been the featured singer and musical advisor for The Revels Christmas performances in New Hampshire, Texas and Massachusetts. Her powerful singing voice and charismatic teaching style makes her an extremely valuable teacher and a pleasure to hear.

Morrison is a tenor, banjo player and jazz piano man and has toured extensively with Village Harmony and Northern Harmony. His fine voice and relaxed teaching style combine with Park’s talent to create a joyful experience for all that makes the old standards come alive.

Cost for the workshop is $20, admission to the concert will be $7; one may attend both for $25. There will be a one-hour break between the workshop and the concert, and attendees are welcome to bring snacks. For more information, call 338-0001 or visit aarhusgallery.com.
