Here’s a health to all true lovers Here’s a health to mine, wherever she may be This very night I will go and see her Although she is many a long mile from me Let the night be dark as the very dungeon Let not a star shine from above I will be guided, o safely guided Into the arms of my own true love He then approached her bedroom window His knee he placed on a cold damp stone Through the pane of glass he gently whispered My darling maid, do you sleep alone? She raised her head from her soft white pillow Her hand she placed on her sleep-warmed breast Through the pane of glass she gently whispered Who is this who disturbs my quiet night’s rest? It’s only I, your darling lover Open the door, love, and let me in For I am tired from my long night’s journey And besides, I am drenched to the very skin She opened the door with the greatest pleasure She opened the door and he walked in They both embraced and they kissed each other Til the dawning of the day it came creeping in The cocks are crowing love I must be going The cocks are crowing love I must away The cocks are crowing love I must be going For we are both servants and we must obey

about

Knitting together dance and music, visual imagery and song, light and shadow, Sound Shadows draws details into relief and shows the unseen. A collaborative creation of Veronica Barron (theater artist, puppeteer, storyteller, singer), Julia Friend (banjo player, singer, visual artist), and Rebecca McGowan (Irish and percussive dancer).

We combine our art forms to celebrate how they enrich our experience of the world: tapping feet give dimension to banjo melodies; shadow pictures bring old stories to life; songs infuse emotion into movement. These dimensions inspire us to look for the invisible presence of where we came from and how it informs where we are going.

Our record — a 7-track EP releasing March 2021 — invites the listener into our intimate creative process. It conjures the physical space in which our music is made, incorporating ambient sounds & combining the familiar and the novel: the squeak of dance shoes, the singer’s breath, the clatter of a teacup, approaching footsteps.
