Songwriters In The Round - Season Premiere
Lisa Redfern brings three talented Maine songwriters to perform in an intimate, unplugged setting in Frontier's theatre for an evening of compelling songs and stories.
For over 25 years Lisa's music has brought joy and comfort to hundreds of thousands. An award-winning singer-songwriter currently at work on her 9th solo CD, she blends her roots in all forms of Americana music to create something unmistakably her own. After Lisa opened for Livingston Taylor he commented to her, "Wow, I haven't heard of voice like yours in 30 years, you sound like the original folk women."
Jud Caswell first hit the folk scene in 2004, earning a buzz of attention with a long string of wins at some of the most prestigious songwriting contests in the country. They say, "write what you know," so Jud has taken his backyard ballads and small-town yarns to stages from Texas to Oregon and back. "Jud Caswell is much more than a great singer and guitar player, Jud's songs take you into the storyteller's world with clear images and characters that come to life for the listener." - David Wilcox
With a gift for story and a graceful voice, Emilia Dahlin weaves mesmerizing tales (complete with Greek myths, robotic messiahs, epic floods and tax evaders) with raw, rootsy folk and dynamic jazz vocals. With an element of stealth, Emilia often illuminates pressing social and environmental issues with subtlety and creativity.
David Dodson is an extraordinary songwriter. He writes with a filmmaker's vision about such topics as shopping malls, his great grandfather, work, yodeling, love, visiting Paris, and his ex-fiance, [aka his wife]. His thoughtful songs range from poignant to hilarious. Nick Apollonio of the Rockport Folk Festival says, "David is the rare musician who is completely at home on the stage."
