“Can the world stand one more story-telling troubadour?
If the artist in question is Cary, the answer is a resounding yes."Billboard Magazine


SUN., JAN. 27 - 3PM

RiverFolk Concert's 10th Anniversary!!!
Meghan
Cary


Meghan Cary didn’t mean to be a musician. But when her fiancé unexpectedly died, she picked up his guitar, figured out how to play it, and wrote her debut, earning her Billboard Magazine’s Critic’s Choice for Best Newcomer. “I wrote my grief into music and sang my way out of the abyss.” Cary continues to share the healing power of music with the community that has rallied around her message of hope and being heard.

Known for her raw honesty and ability to connect with and engage her audience, Cary brings people to their feet and at times to tears with high-energy tunes, masterful storytelling, and lyrics that resonate universally. Cary’s song “Sing Louder”, a call to raise our voices together to make a difference, has become an anthem for the music-loving community.

"These times require songs of compassion and commitment, and Meghan Cary has several, especially 'Sing Louder' and "Responsibility,' which inspire us to reach for our higher selves. And she sings them with such infectious joy you can't resist joining in.” — John Platt, WFUV

In fact, “Sing Louder” resonated so well with audiences in her live shows, that Cary was inspired to include some of these fans on her new record of the same name. Cary gathered 48 music lovers in the studio to raise their voices with her on two tracks, “Sing Louder", and “Responsibility”. Many of them stepped far out of their comfort zones to don headphones and sing into a microphone. They sang with passion, joy and abandon, and it was a profound experience for Cary and all those involved. That energy was captured on Sing Louder. 

“Music is the most potent tool I know to break down walls, slip through barricades, and connect with each other. And when we authentically connect, we can change the world,” said Cary. “Now more than ever we need to be courageous enough to transcend emotional, intellectual, and political barriers, and raise our voices…together.”

“You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll beg for more!” - Critic's Picks, 
- The News and Observer

Cary began her career on stage as a theatre actress with over 100 credits for her work in the U.S. and Europe, and a successful on-camera and voiceover career. She’s written a one-person show with music, “On the Way to the Waterfall”, which she continues to perform around the country. She is also currently composing music and lyrics for the Broadway-bound musical, “The Accidental Caterer”.

After pushing pause on performing to raise two children, Cary launched back onto the music scene at Philly Folk Fest and was awarded a coveted Emerging Artist Showcase slot at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. Cary’s smoky voice, emotional singing, and vulnerable writing continue to win over audiences, and garner favorable comparisons to Melissa Etheridge, Natalie Merchant, Stevie Nicks, and even Bruce Springsteen.

In response to life’s inevitable curve balls, Cary’s mantra is: “If you don't know the words...Sing Louder!”

Cliff Eberhardt
with special guest  Louise Mosrie


"Eberhardt is better than ever, Steve McQueening his way into your heart at about ninety-eight miles an hour, kicking ass with fresh insight and new ways to lament old yearnings.”  —Philly Rock Guide


Cliff Eberhardt

has been a fixture on the acoustic singer-songwriter scene for several decades. Part of the Fast Folk Musical Magazine community of artists in New York City during the 1980s, he recorded for Windham Hill in the 1990s and later for Shanachie and Red House Records. He also was heard on popular commercial jingles for Coke and Chevrolet. Hailed as “One of the most talented musicians on the solo acoustic circuit” (Seattle Post Intelligencer), Eberhardt also has had his songs covered by such notable artists as Shawn Colvin, Cry Cry Cry, the late Richie Havens (with whom he performed and sang the title cut on his Windham Hill debut, The Long Road), and Buffy Sainte Marie. In 2013, he received a Helen Hayes Award for sound design in recognition of his original music and performance the previous year in The Taming of the Shrew at Washington, DC’s Folger Theater. He’s also recorded an album entitled Shrew Songs.

                           “Eberhardt is as welcome as iced tea in August.”—People


"Eberhardt is a superb singer, with a vast credible range of emotions, and a soulfulness that draws from rock and pop, but also from the best folk ballad styles." 
- The Boston Globe

______________

Louise Mosrie is an expressive and soulful southern folk-Americana singer-songwriter whose thoughtful, refined compositions are highlighted by her warm, crystalline voice. Although not too keen about the slow, sleepy ways of doing things in the small rural town in which she grew up, the melodies and imagery that emerged in her writing comes straight from the culture she once dismissed. Rich Warren of Chicago’s WFMT-FM describes Mosrie as “William Faulkner with a guitar.” Louise has been a winner in the prestigious Kerrville New Folk Competition and a “Falcon Ridge Most Wanted to Return” artist. Her latest release, 2014’s Lay It Down, was arranged and produced by Eberhardt.

"...this Nashville-based singer/songwriter blew us away with her in-store performance. Like listening to Patty Griffin and Susan Tedeschi at the same time. Highlight of the 30A Songwriter Festival." - Central Square Records, Seaside Florida

"Louise Mosrie may well be the brightest young folk-oriented artist to emerge from Nashville in many a year." - Rich Warren, WFMT-FM Chicago

The Slambovian Circus of Dreams
FULL BAND!


"They're not just a band.
 That's something like saying the Bible is just a book..."

Fairfield County Weekly


New York's Slambovian Circus of Dreams "is a riveting, mesmerizing, crazy, amazing machine of music." – Chronogram Magazine. With their "Hilariously genius, philosophically cosmic, folk-metal mastery" at work, their melodic avant-folk rock casts a spell that charms from the first note. With thought-provoking lyrics and styles ranging from dusty Americana ballads to huge Pink Floydesque cinematic anthems, the 'Slambovian Experience' is what keeps fans coming back for more...

Formed in Sleepy Hollow, New York over a decade ago, they pioneered the alt-folk circuit, staying on the fringes of the music industry. Winning support from indie radio and press since their inception, fans fueled their career from the ground up to an international status. Having headlined major music festivals and venues across the US, Canada and UK, this band has a devoted cult following across the globe.

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
"9 out of 10 - Love at first spin!" – Americana UK

"Songs imbued with mystical stirrings and idealism... they took the stage by storm!" – The NY Times

A rootsy psychedelica that Maverick Magazine calls "Mightily impressive and hugely original rock from the cool end of Americana".

"Super and Natural... I love this band!" – WXPN Philadelphia

"This band reminds me to write & perform with my whole heart & soul." – Dar Williams
 
"Their fans draw comparisons to the Beatles, Neil Young, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie and Fleetwood Mac. Heavy company?...my opinion is that The Grand Slambovians are simply the finest indie original rock'n'roll band out there..." Poughkeepsie Journal

"This band rolls over you like a snowball full of heart and unabashed beauty with songs of frightened hope and resistant joy." – JAMBASE.COM

"Rootsy psychedelica - songs rivaling any in a rich, intensely original, defiantly quirky canon." – Elmore Magazine

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

The band is led by songwriter Joziah Longo on vocals/guitar/harmonica.  "Soothing and bewitching as a snake oil tonic, the entire root system of Rock Family Trees is embedded in Longo's voice." – The Big Issue, Scotland, UK.  Joziah is joined by Sharkey McEwen on guitar and mandolin, Tink Lloyd a multi-instrumentalist on accordion/cello/ukelele/melodica with Felipe Torres on drums, percussion.
