“Can the world stand one more story-telling troubadour?
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 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
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
“You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll beg for more!” - Critic's
- 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
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!”

Sun., March 3 - 5pm
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
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
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

The Slambovian Circus of Dreams
"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

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

voice." – The Big Issue, Scotland, UK. Joziah is joined

multi-instrumentalist on accordion/cello/ukelele/melodica with Felipe
Torres on drums, percussion.
