Mary Ann Rossoni and The Rossonians will be performing at Stone Soup Coffeehouse on February 19, 2011. Caroline Doctorow will be opening.
In her 25-year music career, Mary Ann Rossoni has performed in the best venues this country has to offer. Having been lauded in many newspapers and magazines, including, among others, Performing Songwriter and People magazine for her self-released CDs, she has also been invited to be the supporting act for countless national performers. Her latest release, "TImber & Nails" is "about as personal a collection as I could have written..."
As much as she loves performing, and is fortunate to have a band that feels the same way about her work and their own musical contribution, things are shifting--other musicians are now taking note and recording her tunes. NBC 10 included a song co-written by Mary Ann and fellow songwriters Deb Dovale and Betsy MacLean in an Emmy-nominated documentary on homelessness. But more recently and locally, Jesse Liam has recorded one of her tunes and has co-written another with Mary Ann for his upcoming release. And on a soon to be released CD, nationally touring performer Caroline Doctorow has recorded one of Mary Ann's tunes as well.
Mary Ann and her band the Rossonians (Joe Potenza, Dan Hann, Jack Gauthier, Betsy Dake and Paul Dube) are featured at Stone Soup Coffeehouse on February 19 and she has invited special guests Caroline Doctorow and the Steamrollers as well as Jesse Liam to be part of the show. Mary Ann is excited to hear what they have done with her tunes and she hopes you will join her to give a listen.
Caroline Doctorow is a singer/songwriter who has released six recordings. Her voice has been called "wondrous, velveteen and one of those pure clear voices that is captivating no matter what she sings." Her latest CD, "Another Country" (2008), was produced by Pete Kennedy and features several stellar guest artists including famed folk singer Nanci Griffith, '60s pop star John Sebastian (Lovin' Spoonful), Maura Kennedy and Happy Traum. The album showcases her velveteen voice while singing the extraordinary songs of 1960's folk icons Mimi and Richard Fariña.
Her performance of the classic folk song This Little Light Of Mine can be heard on the 2003 PBS series, Freedom: A History Of Us, narrated by Katie Couric. Ms. Doctorow tours the East Coast with her band The Steamrollers and co-hosts the folk radio show "The Songtrails Radio Hour" on WPKN.
