7pm SHARP - 9pm
'2nd Mondays' Host James Durst welcomes dynamic Vocalist/Guitarist DEBRA COWAN
201 South Division Street, Peekskill, NY 10655 USA
'IN ONE ERA AND OUT THE OTHER' Dept.: Well, friends, everything has a life, and as we prepare to pull down the curtain on our '2nd Mondays' Series experiment, I'd like to invite you to attend one of our last two events - this coming Monday with fabulous vocalist DEBRA COWAN, and next month with the thoroughly delightful and quirky singer-songwriter HONOR FINNEGAN. Madhumita and I are moving from Westchester to Princeton NJ for her exciting and challenging new job, which necessitates my pulling the plug on my BeanRunner Mondays. We sincerely thank all who've supported this venture of the past year, and hope you'll come by to bid us adieu. Your friend in Song, James

"It is truly a gift what she gives her audience.” --The Miami Herald
"Cowan's warm alto powers through lyrics. Whether she sings material from Richard Thompson or Ralph Stanley her strong musical identity transports every tune to a very special place" --Vintage Guitar Magazine, June 2009
"Debra has a voice which beautifully combines Celtic and Appalachian sensibilities. She and Dave Mattacks have created a deeply satisfying, lyrical and musically elegant record." --Roseanne Cash, Singer and songwriter
"a singer of great confidence and poise. In just a few notes, you know that here is a professional who knows her way around a song."
--Gary Whitehouse, Greenman Review
“It is such a pleasure to hear a real singer who can apply her beautiful voice to the best material available from traditional songs to those by contemporary songwriters. She sure knows how to interpret a song and wrap her soul and voice around it."
--Rich Warren, host, “Midnight Special”, WFMT 98.7 FM, Chicago
