The show promises to be a delightful afternoon of great songs touching on big themes that inspire: Love, Freedom, and Beauty

Oen Kennedy, a fabulous, award-winning singer-songwriter-naturalist, master bird whistler, and long-time friend of the Family Folk Chorale, draws from diverse musical inspirations - from JS Bach to Stevie Wonder to the sounds of the natural world. The show weaves together a selection of Oen’s songs with the classics of Stevie Wonder - a tribute to the creative synergy that comes from love, respect, and wonder.

Sing along with Stevie Wonder favorites “You Are the Sunshine of My Life,” “I Wish,” and “Superstition,” as well as Oen’s powerful “Freedom, Freedom” and the exhilarating “Loon” and “Sky So Black,” among others!

FFC artistic director Chris Eastburn says, “This music feels especially perfect for springtime, songs filled with gratitude, sunshine and wonder!”

The concert will also feature the 2015 Songwriting Competition winning song “We Stand Our Ground” by Chris Naumann, a Boston-based singer-songwriter who will be joining us on stage to present his song.

Chris Nauman can be found frequently at venues in the Boston area or busking in Harvard Square. He has opened for such notable musicians as Vance Gilbert, and he is a member of the People's Music Network. You can learn more about Chris Nauman at www.chrisnauman.com.

The band will feature Gary Backstrom on guitar and bass, Oen Kennedy on guitar, Quinn Eastburn on fiddle, Jonah Backstrom on drums, and special guests Hatrack Gallagher on chromatic harp and Tara Greenblatt on djembe.
