    North Meets South Duo  

    Danielle Cumming, guitar, and John Wesley Wright, tenor

    Toronto-born guitarist Danielle Cumming, and American tenor John Wesley Wright from Rome, Georgia - North Meets South -joined forces in 2007 when they met in Maryland as colleagues at Salisbury University and have now performed together for over a decade. While their repertoire ranges from the Renaissance to modern popular music, it is African American spirituals that hold a central place in their performances and educational outreach programs. Recent highlights include performing for descendants of Frederick Douglass at “Frederick Douglass: Talbot County’s Native Son and International Hero, Bicentennial Prayer Breakfast” in Easton, Maryland; at the Roland Hayes Museum's Harris Arts Center in Calhoun, Georgia, and at the 2022 National Folk Festival.
