Voted #1 a cappella band in the U.S. in 2007, the four members of Moira Smiley and VOCO create post-folk, improvisation-built songs while digging into old Americana and Eastern European sounds, and they are coming to Alamosa, Col. on Wed., Nov. 11, 7:30 p.m., courtesy of the Alamosa Live Music Association (ALMA) and the Adams State College music department. Admission is $14 for the general public, $12 for ALMA members, and $5 for students with ID.

Moira Smiley & VOCO sing powerful, emotional music with lush harmony and the delicious vaudevillian combo of cello, accordion and banjo. Sprinkled throughout their songs are rompin’ stompin’ body percussion sets – always a show-stopping pleasure. VOCO is the energy of street singing and the elegance of a string quartet; joyous, magnificent, hair-raising harmonies – music that mourns and dances at the same time.
