Episode Description:

Our guests are Debra Cowan and John Roberts

With their eloquent voices and exceptional musicianship, John Roberts and Debra Cowan bring to life songs seldom heard on TV or radio these days.

Debra’s nightingale soprano complements and contrasts with John’s rich baritone. Her repertoire focuses on traditional songs and on contemporary work that deserves a wider audience. She’s been known to rework old love songs, sea shanties, and ballads to give them feminist twists.

John and Debra first met in 1999. John, an English émigré, has been singing sea shanties, broadside ballads, pub tunes, and British traditional songs since the 1960s. Sometimes his bold voice stands alone; other times he accompanies himself on Anglo concertina or banjo.
