Artist Description |
Performing a blend of traditional and contemporary songs from England, Ireland, Scotland and North America
From the minute she begins to sing, Debra Cowan grabs her audience and doesn't let go. Her ability to communicate the story within the song is rare. Her rich voice conjures images of stony grey Celtic castles, green and rolling English landscapes, and humorous American urban scenes. Just as the audience is left spellbound after Debra presents a woeful traditional ballad of love gone wrong, she immediately brings laughter with an outrageous comic song.
The power that is contained in Debra Cowan's singing can silence even the noisiest room and can command the attention of even the most disinterested listener. Her love and passion for singing and her respect for a well-crafted song is felt by anyone who is in her presence the minute the first notes resound. Whether it be tears of laughter or crying, feeling the song is what Debra Cowan is all about. Yes, Debra seems to have a song for every occasion - and it is always the occasion for a song.
