Musicians: The Folias Duo, comprised of flutist Carmen Maret and guitarist Andrew Bergeron, has been captivating audiences with their unique sound for two decades. including several times for us at C3, and we love them!

Down Time’s quaint stream 

Without an oar, 

We are enforced to sail, 

Our Port—a secret— 

Our Perchance—a gale. 

What Skipper would 

Incur the risk, 

What Buccaneer would ride, 

Without a surety from the wind 

Or schedule of the tide?  

—Emily Dickinson, Down Time’s quaint stream (1656)
