About The Event
Pelletier’s passionate performance of these songs makes him a formidable force on the national folk scene.
“An attractive and refreshingly original performer with an entertaining and quirky sense of humor. Booked him at first sight!”
Rod Kennedy, Kerrville Folk Festival
“Pelletier’s Passion will leave you breathless!”
Marilyn Rea Beyer WUMB, Boston
Sit for an hour with Dan Pelletier and you’ll walk away chuckling, shaking your head, wanting a long, cool drink and the red, tender lips of someone to love. He will show you himself, yourself, your lover, your family and friends and quite a few characters you may not know, but will instantly recognize. They jump out of his songs full of beauty and blemishes, brilliance and foolishness, insanity, humor, intensity, and tenderness.
He has twice been a Southwest Regional Folk Alliance Main Stage Showcase Performer, (2017, 2000) has won the 2015 Towne Crier Open Mike Invitational First Prize, was a 2014 Rocky Mt Folks Fest Songwriters Showcase Artist, 2013,14 Cape May Singer-Songwriter Showcase Artist, 2003 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Showcase Artist, and many more. Pelletier's brilliant "The Baddest of All" won the USA Songwriting Competition's first prize for lyrics, out of more than 30,000 entries.
Lara Herscovitch is singer-songwriter-poet-performer gem. As described in The Boston Globe, she brings a luminous voice and a buoyant stage presence big-hearted lyrics embrace the sum of life Herscovitchs music blows on the embers of a lagging spirit or a dormant creative life. Lara leads with authenticity, integrity, humor and heart. Sound Waves Magazine described her music as expertly written prose songwriting at its best good for your ears AND your soul. Acoustic Live in New York City added, She possesses not only a huge reservoir of musical talent and a voice with a bell-like clarity, but a keen sense of global concern and a fierce intellect... It might seem too good to be true, but true it is. LaraHerscovitch.com
