Janet Moore and Glenn Cunningham will be hosting a folk music house concert on Friday, Feb. 22, starting at 7 p.m. at the Trinity United Church Hall, located on Hammond Street in Shelburne.

This concert features an intimate performance in the round, with three diverse folk singers playing original and traditional tunes from the old world and new.

Kim Barlow will play songs from her newest album, “How To Let Go,” about domestic minutiae, the larger picture and a wild slant on some traditional Maritime tunes.

Robyn Carrigan, recently replanted in Nova Scotia from Vancouver, puts her angelic voice to original songs and the Gaelic traditional songs of her Cape Breton childhood.

John Guliak is visiting from Edmonton, where he is a punky folksinging institution. He spent a period in Scotland digging deeper into the roots of things and will bring a smoked, earthy charm to this house concert.

Tickets cost $15, with all proceeds from ticket sales going directly to the musicians.

Seating is limited, so it’s best to purchase tickets ahead of time by calling Moore or Cunningham at 902-875-4668. If tickets are still available, they will be sold at the door the night of the concert.
