FRIDAY 11th MAY  DAN MILNER  &  BONNIE MILNER  (USA)

     We are pleased to welcome our good friends Dan & Bonnie for their first performance together at MTC.  They have a passion for singing and a very special and unusual repertoire.

Bonnie & Dan Milner sing traditional Irish, Irish-American and maritime songs in unaccompanied harmony. Each is also a strong solo vocalist.  Dan Milner, geography professor and world traveller, grew up in a singing Irish family in Birmingham England, Ballybunion Ireland and Brooklyn.  His CD, Irish Pirate Ballads, received 2 Indie Award nominations in 2011. 

   Bonnie's interest in sea songs was sparked by hearing shanties sung at Mystic Seaport in Connecticut and by her friendship with the last working shantyman, Stan Hugill.  She is a member of the renowned all-woman quartet, The Johnson Girls.        https://stjohns.digication.com/danmilner/Music

   With English music from The Pigeons  (Sarah Crofts, Paul Gross, Ken Lees )
