Our New CD in the works!
Welcome! Avon Faire is a female singing group from New York City, featuring 3-part harmony vocal arrangements of traditional Celtic and English folk songs. We love these songs from hundreds of years ago, and are excited to keep this music alive and well!
Avon Faire is New York City’s fun, female, traditional 3-part harmony singing group, featuring Andriette Redmann, Kath Green and Anna Marie Spallina; performing rousing pub songs, medieval story ballads, and sea shanties from the British Isles with percussionist John Rokosny and step dancer Dawn Daniels to keep your feet moving.
Avon Faire has 2 CD’s; debut album “Riddles and Love Songs”, and the brand new “Tales of Love and Adventure” to be released in the summer of 2019.
“Tales of Love and Adventure” features guests Cait O’Riordan of The Pogues, Cillian Vallely of Lunasa, and noted cellist Jane Scarpantoni.
2019 marks the fourth return to England for Avon Faire, as the group embarks on another a summer tour in July and August.
"We are delighted to be performing in England again, it is always a highlight of our year", says the group.
"Enchanting", says Tim Carroll / FolkWords UK, "Listening to these perfectly balanced voices adds an entrancing level of attraction. If hitting ‘replay’ is any judge, then it certainly makes its mark".
"Lovely stuff", says Dave Pegg of Fairport Convention.
Avon Faire performs in concert, folk and art venues, historic festivals and special events, sharing their magical vocal blend and songs with love.
