The Hattie & Joe Craven Show is a duo project celebrating the value of music making and artful living within, and shared by, families. The presentation features a show curated by a father and his daughter, awakening each other to new possibilities as they each bring their influences to a multi-generational table. The result, is a program of music that spans 300 years and with a bouquet of vernacular styles of song with occasional instrumentals.
Hattie is a stunning vocalist and her father is a seasoned veteran of instrumental based music. Joe accompanies Hattie on mandolin, octave mandolin, percussion and fiddle, with Hattie occasionally bringing ukulele to the mix.
The unique arranging, and at times re-make, of popular and lesser known compositions is a hallmark of their sound. They have presented their daughter & dad duo to school and library programs, house concerts, clubs and theaters to nationally known music festivals. Hattie exhibits a sparkling presence to young hearted people of all ages, on and off the stage, and combined with her father’s instrumental prowess and good humor, this is an inspiring and delightful experience.
