The Singer and the Player
Every vocalist needs an accompaniest, a trusted partner who can help the singer hit just the right note, in every sense.
The accompaniest is usually found playing guitar or piano, supporting and cajoling the singer, drawing back and pushing forward again.
When the partnership works, it truly illuminates the music.
This Saturday (March 12), we feature three successful collaborations in Newfoundland music, recorded in a concert called "Two by Two by Two."
You'll hear Jeff Dyer accompanied by Bill Brennan, Jenny Gear with Sandy Morris and his guitar at her side, and Julia Halfyard joined by her piano man, Brian Way.
It's an eclectic hour of music ranging from jazz standards to cabaret show-stoppers and covers of pop classics like "Purple Rain."
