Friday Night Folk at All Souls, New London, CT, will kick off their 2013-14 concert program on September 13 with a community showcase of local talent featuring Sister Mary with Sue Mead opening.
“Sister Mary” is the monicker used by Rhode Island native Mary T. S. Brooks. Her “elegant lyrics, mixed with banjo, acoustic guitar and bewitching melodies will hook you,” says Dirty Gerund At Ralph’s Rock Diner. Adds Mike Bucchino of Unity Records, "I’d liken her sound to a female Iron & Wine of sorts: sweet, clever, biting acoustic folk in a league of its own…she’s dubbed it Psychedelicate."
Sue Mead, a singer songwriter from Niantic, CT, whose compositions are introspective and soulful, will open. Sue has been performing for many years in and around the New London area.
The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, September 13, in Unity Hall at All Souls: 19 Jay Street, New London. Tickets are $10 at the door, $8 reserved in advance.
Friday Night Folk’s Fall concert series will continue with world-renowned performers John Gorka on October 4 and Tom Chapin on November 8. Tickets for all concerts are available at fridaynightfolk.org.
