First event of monthly singer-songwriter series
Beacon’s Dogwood will present a singer-songwriter series every last Sunday of the month beginning in January. The series will spotlight artists in the Hudson Valley and beyond. To launch the series, the acclaimed local group MotherLode Trio will perform on Jan. 26.
Each evening in the series will begin at 8 p.m. and will be presented with no cover charge, though donations for musicians will be requested.
Other artists lined up for the series include:
Feb. 23: The Pembles
March 30: Open Book, featuring Michele and Rick Gedney
April 27: KJ Denhert
The MotherLode Trio – aka Stacy Labriola, Patti Pelican and Terry Platz – has appeared on shows like ABC’s Good Morning America, NBC’s The Today Show, and in print on pages of The New York Times and The London Times. Coining titles such as Bad Mutha Blues and Are We There Yet?, their tunes originally traced their journeys as parents. They have matured over their 10-year tenure to capture audiences beyond the fringe of parental guidance. The warmth of MotherLode’s sound continues, with recent input on Dar Williams’ Many Great Companions, and debut release by The New York Times Dot Earth blogger Andy Revkin.
