Musical duo Too Human will be performing at the Woonsocket Harris Public Library on Saturday, April 26 at 2 p.m.
Ask them what kind of music they play and they will answer, "Good music with a lot of heart." You still want to narrow it down? Okay - they cover jazz standards from the American Songbook, but with a fresh interpretation that brings new life to those classic songs. And their songwriting influences are Paul Simon, Smokey Robinson, Joni Mitchell, Buck Owens, Duke Ellington, Thom Bell, Carole King, Cole Porter and the Gershwins - from jazz and blues to pop to R&B. With vocals, guitar, percussion and, on occasion, upright bass they have a jazzy / bluesy feel with a lot of heart. Ellen's earthy voice combines perfectly with Roger's unusual percussion style and stirring vocals. Sweet harmonies, unusual arrangements and Roger's famous mouth trombone are the musical elements that frame their performance. But what drives their work is their on-stage chemistry. High quality musicianship with humor and passion, totally in sync with each other, they create a strong and intimate atmosphere.
They have opened for or shared the stage with 10,000 Maniacs, Janis Ian, Martin Sexton, Livingston Taylor, Kenny Rankin, Kim & Reggie Harris, Susan Werner, Jack Williams, Les Sampou, David Amram, Dave's True Story, Dean Friedman, and Sloan Wainwright. And some past performance highlights include the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, Mechanics Hall in Worcester, MA, The Bottom Line in NYC, Bushnell Theater in Hartford, CT and Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs, NY. They have also appeared live as featured artists on WFUV with Meg Griffin and John Platt, WXPN with Gene Shay, WRPI with Sonny Ochs, WCUW with Richard Fox, WFDU with Ron Olesko, WVIA with George Graham, WKZE with Frank Matheis, WWUH with Ed McKeon, WHUS with Susan Forbes Hanson and John Sloan, and many others.
