Non-traditional folk band returns
By IVY MILLIARD
The non-traditional folk band of
Dalglish, Larsen and Sutherland returns
to Chapel Hill this week for perfor
mances today and Friday at the Art
School in Carrboro.
The band, which s based in Bloom
ington, Ind., has appeared at the Art
School before and received enthusiastic
responses from audiences for its distinc
tive instrumental and vocal ar
rangements. "They have great stage presence, and
the audience reacts strongly to them,"
said Maria Evans, assistant director of
the Art School. "They're not just musi
cians, but well-rounded people. They are
also very funny."
The music of Dalglish, Larsen and
Sutherland is a unique combination of a
wild set of Kentucky mountain dance
tunes with fiddles, hammer dulcimer and
spoons and original pieces from a variety
of musical traditions American, Irish,
Scandinavian and French.
"This group writes much of their own
stuff," Evans said. "They are down
home, yet funny, so you can understand
what they have to say."
The band's music includes new hymns
with old harmony, old ballads with new
harmony, and song writing with a fresh
approach to alternative lifestyles with
themes as varied as neglected wood
stoves, personal politics, spiritual survival
and leaky skylights.
Evans said the band's inventive in
strumentals have gained them nationwide
Malcolm Dalglish on his 100-string
hammer dulcimer produces a vivid range
' of sounds from harp to honky-tonk harp
sichord. Gray Larsen's playing of flute,
fiddle and concertina (a relative of the ac
cordion) reveals multi-ethnic influences in
his sound, while Pete Sutherland's ver
satile fiddling provides much of the
group's rhythmic intensity.
"They reinterpret traditional folk
music that will attract you and pull you
into an interest in other folk music,"

Music department opens concert series with recital by voice professor
By JEFF GROV E
The UNC department of music kicked off its free con
cert series for the fall semester Tuesday night with a recital
by tenor Stafford Wing in Hill Hall Auditorium. Al
though high notes gave Wing occasional problems, he car
ried off the evening in fine style.
Wing, a UNC voice professor, chose a program of
songs by Mozart, Brahms, Barber, Debussy and
Most of Mozart's songs and concert arias require a
courtly, graceful style in performance, and Wing provided
that sense for his first two songs. A final Mozart piece,
however, called for a farewell to decorum. The song,
"Warming" ("Warning"), is one of those off-color bits
of naughtiness that can be innocent or obscene depending
on the singer. Wing obviously had fun with this song,
walking a tightrope between good and bad taste which
had the audience chuckling along.
A set of six songs by Johannes Brahms proved more
challenging to Wing but also gave accompanist Thomas
Warburton his first chance to shine brightly.
On the whole, the general vocal range of these songs lies
higher than that of-the Mozart pieces. Wing coped admir
ably with the music, though the higher notes did not have
the power he gave middle and lower tones. Warburton
especially distinguished himself with the song "Auf dem
Kirchhofe" ("In the Churchyard"), a gloomy piece of
sturm und drang in which the pianist must set a turbulent
mood before the singer begins.
The first half of the program ended with three songs by
American composer, Samuel Barber. Barber is generally
acknowledged by musicologists to be the best song com
poser of the 20th century; Part of the reason for this is
that the young Barber himself was a well-trained baritone. ,
This gave him a keen understanding of the capabilities and
limitations of the human voice, and his songs are, as a re
sult, small masterpieces.
The three Barber songs Wing performed were settings
of texts by James Joyce. The first, "Rain Has Fallen,"
was simply and soulfully sung with good breath control.
Wing encountered pitch problems in the second song,
sometimes sliding onto a note after beginning it a little
flat. In the final song, "I Hear an Army," Wing hit his
high notes with a vigor he had not shown earlier, but this
power was somewhat compromised by signs of slight
After intermission, Wing sang five songs by Claude
Debussy. The first, "Mandoline" ("Mandolin"), was a
tongue-twisting exercise. Wing rose to the challenge with
rapid-fire declamation that remained clearly intelligible in
spite of its speed. The fifth song of the set, "Fantoches"
("Phantoms"), gave Wing the opportunity to have a little
fun. His playful singing of the spicy, flirty tale of
Scaramouche and Pulcinella was highly enjoyable.
The finale of the recital, Alberto Ginastera's Cinco
Condones Populares Argentines (Five Argentine Popular
Songs), was definitely the high point of the evening.
Ginastera usually composed music in a somewhat forbid
ding alien idiom, but this song cycle is one of his more ac
cessible works. Ginastera died this summer, and Wing
performed the songs in his memory.
Ginastera would have been proud of Wing's work. One
song in particular, "Triste," stood out for Wing's haunt
ingly beautiful, carefully shaded singing. The song is a la
ment of unrequited love, and Wing brought out its full
poignance. The lullaby "Arrorro" was quite affecting,
and the cycle's boisterous concluding song, "Gato," was,
pulled off with youthful zest and energy. Overall, Wing's
performance of the Ginastera cycle was exciting and
As the evening progressed, Warburton proved that he
knew the true meaning of the term accompanist. Too
many pianists accompanying singers try to hide behind
their instruments, to hide even behind the singer. But
Warburton knows how to play with a singer. There was a
give and take between Wing and Warburton which is ab
sent in many recitals but which added a special dimension
to Tuesday's concert.
Wing was on leave from UNC last year, so it was very
appropriate for this year's fall concert season to open with
him in recital. Anticipation was high, and to a large extent
Wing satisfied. And at some moments, especially during
"Triste," he was downright magical.
Animals at root of 'odor from below' at Davie Hall
The bakery. The county fair. A meadow of fresh-mown
grass. Puppies. Summer rain.
How many times does a familiar smell send you reeling
back to some unforgettable memory? And years from now,
how many campus buildings will you recall by odor alone? If
a stroll past the east side of Davie Hall doesn't jog some
reminiscence deep within your nostrils, perhaps-it's . time ta
pick a windless day and experience the btfilcUng-with bad
breath. . .
None of the Davie addition, and precious little of the in
terior labs and classrooms, emit this particular essence. It
comes from below. Nor does an odor cling to Davie's walls
and windows. Two giant ventilation fans on the east wall
gather and compact this unmistakable charge and send it like
an aromatic bazooka blast out and away from the building.
There, we are lucky to have an atmosphere large enough for
the odor to diffuse.
Oddly enough, in the eleven years that this phenomenon
has been dubbed by students as "hamster breeze" and
"guinea pig gale," neither hamsters nor guinea pigs reside in
Davie "Hall. Although admittance :to the experimental
'animals Iabis restricted to staff and technicians ("Sorry, no re-
porters downstairs"), Associate Professor of Psychology Lin
da Dykstra helped alleviate some curiosity.
"There are about 30 monkeys, 10 cats, 16 pigeons and 150
mice downstairs," Dykstra said.
