Matter & Ghost: A Collaboration by Neil Woodward and Sheila Graziano
Matter & Ghost is a new collaboration by multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter Neil Woodward and stepdancer Sheila Graziano.
The matter of this duo is a show that highlights a variety of styles of traditional music, songs and dance that represent our American culture and the roots from which it has flourished. Both historic and original material is offered up in the course of a presentation, with stories and anecdotes adding perspective to individual pieces. Our ancestors built the foundation for the traditions, and their ghosts hover about us, constantly encouraging the perpetuation and evolution of these folk arts which are the heart and soul of our civilization.
