The Two Acclaimed Artists To Perform Individual Sets Followed By A
Special Collaborative Finale
Roxborough, PA (October 8, 2019) – Folk’s finest female artists will take center stage at the Philadelphia Folksong Society (PFS) Saturday, October 19 at 8 PM as it hosts a special “Fall Into Folk” show featuring Billboard Critic’s Choice Artist Meghan Cary and Beloved Singer-Songwriter Sloan Wainwright.
This much-anticipated performance will include individual sets by the artists, followed by an explosive collaborative finale. Cary, who is currently enjoying the successful release of her latest album Sing Louder, will kick off the show playing songs from her chart-topping record while engaging the audience on a powerfully personal level. By leading the audience through an experience that has been called “healing, inspiring and outrageously joyful,” her message of unity and the power of raising our voices together infuses every show. In fact, her song “Sing Louder”, has become an anthem for the music-loving community and has been heralded as one that “inspires us to reach our higher selves.” (John Platt, WFUV FM).
To complement her performance, Cary will also offer fans the opportunity to purchase a signed copy of her first book Sing Louder: The Stories Behind The Songs. The companion to her critically-acclaimed album Sing Louder, this mesmerizing collection of essays provides fans with a deeply introspective look into the life stories that inspired her most profound album to date.
“It is an honor to share the stage, and join voices with such a soulful and moving performer that I consider to be a mentor,” said Cary. “It’s going to be a very special evening of music, stories and collaboration… and no doubt, a few laughs!”
Wainwright, who was born with music in her veins as the youngest sister to folk-music luminary Loudon Wainwright III and aunt to Rufus and Martha Wainwright – is regarded as one of the most versatile singer-songwriters of her time. With a solid and impressive discography of 10 original CD releases to her credit, Wainwright continues to write, sing and perform live and has won two songwriting awards at the annual EmPower Posi Music Awards. She has also written numerous musical compositions for theater and dance and teaches at many of the best-known master songwriter series and workshops.
