Singer and songwriter Willa Mamet was born in a trunk and raised by performers of all kinds. She’s made music since about that time, singing irrepressibly and playing piano and guitar. With her musical partner, Paul Miller, she recorded two albums, East Hill Road and Let Somebody Love You, both of which won the VT Times Argus “Tammy” Album of the Year in 2013 and 2015. Her next album will be born in Spring 2020. Meanwhile, she plays out solo, with Miller, and other beloveds, bringing her unique blend of rapier tongue and honey heart to audiences everywhere. Hear the voice that Patti Lupone calls, “Heartbreaking. Musical. Contemporary and ancient.”
Briony Greenhill, recently described as "the Joni Mitchell of a new generation,” is a rising star on both sides of the Atlantic. Briony will improvise, get you singing, and share songs from her upcoming album Cross The Sea. Piano, voice, drawing from folk and groove, songs of politics and intimacy, songs of hope and heartbreak in these times.
