Music in Bass Hall: John Roberts and Debra Cowan

John Roberts and Debra Cowan have been presenting their eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary songs for the last five years. Audience participation is not required, but strongly encouraged and it’s immediately apparent that any reluctance to join in on choruses disappears at the sound of the first notes. A Roberts-Cowan performance is sure to bring a smile to the faces of all who attend, even after the last notes have long died away. With their eloquent voices and expert musicianship, John Roberts and Debra Cowan bring to life songs seldom heard on TV or radio these days. Drawn from both the folk tradition and the work of contemporary songwriters, many of these songs tell of the timeless joys and sorrows of human experience. They offer windows into where we’ve come from and perhaps where we’re headed.



Both John and Debra can spin a ripping good yarn and whether illuminating, inspiring, or laugh-out-loud funny, their stories convey their love of the songs and the people who’ve sung them over the years, decades — and in some cases centuries. John and Debra firmly believe that folk music is not a spectator sport. They can turn any audience into a chorale by patiently teaching sometimes complicated and often tongue-tying choruses, along with familiar songs. Whether the venue is a coffeehouse, auditorium, or living room, listeners leave a Roberts-Cowan performance smiling and often singing, knowing that the song is the star, and singing is what keeps great songs alive. Bass Hall is located in the Monadnock Center for History and Culture, 19 Grove Street, Peterborough, N.H.


Tickets are $20 ($18 for members) and may be purchased online or by calling (603) 924-3235. The 2018 Music in Bass Hall concert series is produced by the Monadnock Center for History and Culture.
