February Sky, of Trout Lake, Michigan, features traditional singer and Celtic guitarist Phil Cooper with songwriter and singer Susan Urban. Their combined talents on guitar, Cooper sings and plays his own arrangements of traditional songs and tunes on six string guitar and cittern, and he also interprets a number of carefully chosen songs from the best of modern folk song writers. Susan Urban is a writer of story songs and humorous "slice of life" songs. She accompanies her singing on guitar, six string banjo, mountain dulcimer, and hand percussion instruments.
February Sky presents a combination of old and new songs addressing a wide range of human experience, complete with vocal harmony, intricate instrumentation and thoughtful stagecraft.
