A special Mothers Day to Remember" featuring Jesse Terry, Lara Herscovitch and Lisa Bastoni in a Nashville-style songwriter circle. Come listen to three distinct voices and writers as they each take turns in the spotlight. A rare opportunity to hear these Three Artists performing and interact with each other.
Jesse Terry has made it his mission to share his love of music fully and completely, without regard for shading his emotions or tempering his convictions. The ability to create a connection, to bare his soul and express his feelings through his songs has been the defining thread in a career that began in 2010 and has spawned five albums. Terry has played over a thousand shows around the world, including such notable festivals as Bonnaroo, 30A Songwriters Festival, Philadelphia Folk Festival and the Americana Music Associations AmericanaFest.
Lara Herscovitch is a gem of a modern American troubadour. A singer-songwriter-poet, performer and advocate, her highly original contemporary folk is spiced with blues, pop and jazz influences. She writes, sings and leads with authenticity, integrity, humor and heart, and delivers performances that inspire, inform, uplift and entertain diverse audiences.
Sound Waves Magazine described her mastery as expertly written prose songwriting at its best Lara gets it all done with her skillful songwriting musical timing, memorable melodies, and compelling lyrics. Its good for your ears AND your soul. This craftsmanship travels on a voice that Performer Magazine called clear and smooth like expensive liquor, and is accompanied by guitar infused with her skill as a percussionist.
Following a ten year break from music, a career change, and two children, Massachusetts songwriter Lisa Bastoni has returned with The Wishing Hour (2017). Produced by Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer Felix McTeigue (Anais Mitchell/Lori McKenna), and recorded mainly in the wee hours of the night in the kids' play room, the album debuted as #1 most played on Boston's WUMB. In the past year, Lisa has been selected to showcase at the New England Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) conference, as well as the Falcon Ridge and New Song Music/LEAF Festivals. Her song "Rabbit Hole" was grand prize winner of the Great American Song Contest. She has opened for artists such as Lori McKenna, The Low Anthem, Regina Spektor and Arlo Guthrie. "Americana of the highest order...along the lines of Gretchen Peters or Patty Griffin" (Maverick-UK).
Lisa is currently working on a follow-up album, to be released in late 2019.
