Caroline's soft and serene voice accompanied by a band of fine musicians and performers was a sheer delight. A Brief biography follows:
Caroline Doctorow's career boasts seven folk/Americana albums and a reputation for delivering a song with a velveteen voice. She has established herself as a leading force on the folk music scene. Her albums appear regularly on the top of the folk music radio airplay charts. Ms. Doctorow has just appeared at The Guthrie Center and New Bedford Summerfest this season to standing room crowds and rave reviews. She can be heard on the PBS special "Freedom-The History of Us" narrated by Katie Couric. Nanci Griffith and John Sebastian appear on her current release "Another Country" a retrospective of the songs of Richard and Mimi Fariña, produced by Pete Kennedy. Ms. Doctorow tours the east coast with her band "The Steamroller" and co-hosts the folk radio show The Songtrails Radio Hour.
Mary McCaslin is a folk singer song writer who has influenced a generation of "younger folk performers." We can read the following in her bio reprinted from her web-site.
Mary McCaslin represents an unbroken link between traditional folksingers and today's "new folk" singer-songwriters. Her music ranges from ballads of the old west to her own songs of the new west and modern times. Regarded as a pioneer of open guitar tunings, and known for her distinctive vocal style, Mary's influences can be heard in many younger folk performers. Her classic recordings in the 1970's and 1980's included brilliant original songs like "Prairie in The Sky," "Young Westley" and "Down The Road" that have been covered by others including Tom Russell, David Bromberg and Stan Rogers.
This promises to be a wonderful opportunity to see and hear three great folk artists at work.
