Brown Bag show plays it smart

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

If it isn’t broke, then why fix it? Ruth Wilson Francisco, soprano, and Nancy Thomas, pianist, have taken a musical program that features old fashioned tunes, classical pieces and hymns across the U.S. They have performed this program in Utah, Colorado, Albuquerque and now they are bringing it to Los Alamos.

Wilson Francisco and Thomas will perform in the Los Alamos Arts Council’s Brown Bag Show at         12:30 p.m. Wednesday at Fuller Lodge.

The tried and true program featured during the free concert will include English songs such as “Over the Mountains,” “Drink to Me Only with Thine Eyes” and “The Ash Groves.”

Additionally, Wilson Francisco and Thomas will perform “Steal Me Sweet Thief,” from the opera,  “Old Maid and the Thief,” as well as a medley of old fashioned songs that the crowd is encouraged to sing along with. They will also offer some old fashioned hymns.

Not only have the singer and piano stuck to this program, but they have also stuck with one another.

Wilson Francisco said they first collaborated in college 20 years ago and then reunited on stage five years ago.

They have traveled everywhere from Durango, Colo., to St. George, Utah.
