Foyer Folk: Songs of the Folk

Songs of the Folk are seasoned American folk-blues performers with original songs that harken back to American South roots music and folk revival artists of the Northeastern US. Formed by husband and wife A.T. and Lauren Cason, they aim to preserve the genre, as well as add to it, and their passion and joy for sharing their songs live is palpable.

Crowding around condenser mics to perform sets of songs that boast lyrical intrigue and musical variety, the two voices weave in, out, and around each other, supported by A.T.’s own brand of fingerstyle played on his 1935 Gibson, all contributing to a quintessential, yet new American Folk sound.

The duo’s original songs are for and about people in all walks of life, often exploring the search for beauty, light, and hope amidst life’s struggles. A.T. and Lauren have performed in theatres, libraries, house concerts, churches, prisons, homeless shelters, refugee gatherings, and schools in America and in England.

“Their original songs have a slick, contemporary musicianship underlying them … their tasteful instrumentation always helping to bring their rootsy subject matters to life.” Folk and Honey

“What will stick with you are the stories … you look forward to the next tune like you do the next chapter of a book. One you don’t want to put down.” WNC Original Music
