Music in Bass Hall presents Debra Cowan- Women and the Sea

June 1 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Debra Cowan Plays Bass Hall June 1

Debra Cowan’s voice is like silk, her songs powerful and emotive. Sirens and supernatural women, the women left behind, and women disguised as men make their appearances in Debra’s repertoire of contemporary and traditional songs of the sea.

In her return to Bass Hall, Debra will present Women and the Sea, a program that explores the roles of women in maritime song.  “Debra has carefully selected ballads, sea chanteys, and contemporary songs through which she takes listeners on a delightful journey through time, sharing tales of humor and hardship, and the very real challenges faced by women who are part of the maritime world.” -Laura Orleans, Director, New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center, New Bedford, MA

Following a life-long desire to sing and perform, Debra Cowan left her job as a California middle school math teacher and went to live in Edinburgh, Scotland for six months. There she learned the art of unaccompanied singing and upon her return to the U.S. began traveling all over New England performing at any open mike within 100 miles of her new home in Springfield, Massachusetts. Almost 20 years later, she is now a full-time performer who bridges the old and new with a refreshing stage presence. She can be seen in many venues, heard on both terrestrial and internet radio world-wide and will travel anywhere to sing. Her four recordings have been met with high praise world-wide and in June 2015, she was featured in the UK folk music magazine, Living Tradition. She tours extensively in the United Kingdom and in North America.
