Joyce is a wonderful performer, and the person who told me about Mudcat. If you've never heard her, it's probably because she hasn't been able to travel much. Instead she has brought performers to RI. In addition to the accomplishments mentioned below, she founded RI's annual Labor and Ethnic Heritage Festival. She is also an ardent activist for peace and social justice. There will be sing-alongs.

Stone Soup, in St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 50 Park Place, Pawtucket, RI, is a few blocks from Rt. 95, just north of Providence and just south of the Massachusetts State Line.

Joyce Katzberg will be performing at Stone Soup Coffeehouse on May 7, 2011, 8:00 pm. This is a fragrance-free evening. (Joyce has allergies.)

It is always a special evening at Stone Soup when founding member Joyce Katzberg (Sing4Peace on Mudcat) takes the stage. She has also announced that this concert, a retrospective look at the songs she has been singing at this coffeehouse and throughout the region, will be recorded by Steven Friedman of Melrose Studios.

Tickets are $15.00 and available on Paypal at the link below.

Joyce's songs are a unique blend of topical and traditional, historical and hysterical. Her shows combine her original compositions and choice material gathered over forty years on stage. Whether she is singing a song she wrote (If I Were God, A Lullaby in War Time) or a song by writers such as Malvina Reynolds (World in Their Pockets, Little Boxes), she engages her listeners. Several years ago, Joyce worked with WGBH (Boston public radio) to present a tribute concert to Malvina Reynolds. Joyce's songs are timeless and speak about the world we live in.

Joyce has been nominated "best female vocalist" by both the Providence Phoenix (1999 and 2001) and R.I. Motif (2005). In 2003, the Phoenix included Joyce in their list of "most influential" Rhode Islanders. In 2006, Joyce was honored by the University of Rhode Island Honors Colloquium for "career contributions using music as a tool of peace, non-violence and social justice - changing the world one song at a time". Pete Seeger has described Joyce as having "one of the best voices I have ever heard -an extraordinary person."
Her performances show the lessons she learned from her father (the late Jody Gibson, Cranky Yankee on Mudcat), who taught her. "… the most important thing was to play with honesty and heart the same for one person as I would for a thousand. Give it your best."

She's really good. If you can't come, at least listen to her on the MySpace link above. Unfortunately, the sound engineer who was supposed to record the concert has had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances.
