Welcome to my wee corner of Patreon and I thank you for taking the time to stop by! 

I am a singer and interpreter of all kinds of folksongs, both traditional and contemporary. Sometimes I sing unaccompanied, sometimes I use a guitar but mostly I love to hear an audience sing along when I am performing in a live concert setting. The songs I find are almost always about the human condition and my fondness for traditional songs and ballads inspires me to research the backgrounds, historical context and stories which I find fascinating. 

And I have so many ideas for projects! Here are a few:
  • Developing more historically themed projects such as my "Women and the Sea" program
  • Continuing to work with Dave Mattacks as producer/arranger on future recording projects 
  • Being able to hire my good friend, guitarist Bill Cooley (who is featured on the ballad "Fair Annie") to tour and record with.
  • Being able to hire a videographer to film my process for recording with a producer.
  • Hiring an illustrator and/or animator for projects involving the songs I sing.
  • Conducting interviews with some of the musicians whose songs I sing and some of the folks who have inspired me over the years
  • Creating photo slideshows using songs I have recorded

I want to give my Patrons a window into my process as a musician and singer. Rough and finished recordings during the production process, videos and my thoughts about the songs I sing are always part of creating my Folk Song Experiences. I hope that you will join me! You can find out more, listen to music and see videos at DebraCowan.com
