Folkapotamus is a Boston area based folk duo consisting of Penni Hart and Tony Trites. They have been performing together since 2011. Their thoughtful lyrics and flowing melodies draw listeners in as they are taken on a journey of life and love. Although their career is just blossoming, Penni and Tony can be seen at various coffee houses and folk venues in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. They are currently studying songwriting with folk icon Vance Gilbert.
Folkapotamus's first studio release, "Whispered Words," will be available in the spring of 2014. The title track "Whispered Words" tells the story of songwriters and the emotional side of writing a song. "Song for Ann" written about Penni's grandmother has been said to be a perfect story song and in the songwriting style of Sandy Denny or Joan Baez. "Lake Shore Limited" is a light-hearted tale of a train trip the duo took from Boston to Chicago and back. "Nowhere to Land" is an historical piece about Doolittle's Raiders in World War II, told from a pilot's perspective. All the original songs on the cd are beautifully crafted - and sometimes heartwrenching - stories.
