Mama's Black Sheep Zoom Concert and Open Mic
Zoom Concert for Women in the Arts/National Women's Music Festival Members
We will start with a song by Jori Costello followed by a 30-minute concert with Mama's Black Sheep which will be followed by 60 minute Open Mic led by Jori Costello.
Mamas Black Sheep is the soulful collaboration of singer-songwriters Ashland Miller (guitar/vocals) and Laura Cerulli (drums/vocals). Together, this duo creates a blend of hit worthy originals and covers with a unique spin. Each song allows you to travel with time, whether youre swinging to Country, Rocking to Pop, Grooving to Soul, or swaying to the Blues; theres always something to move your body and stir your soul!
Touring together since 2008, Miller & Cerulli (veterans of the singer-songwriter circuit), will make you feel like every aspect of their journey is in Real-Time. Creating a sound all of their own, Mamas Black Sheep is driven by Millers versatile guitar grooves, Cerullis innovative percussion, and two voices that blend like honey & whiskey in perfect harmonious balance. These ladies rock to their own beat, sharing songs of life and love, and empowering the listener to live boldly beyond the barriers.
Mamas Black Sheep has four well received CDs to their credit (Unmarked Highway, 2010; Drivin On, 2011; Live @ The Bevy, 2016; The Sheep Save Christmas, 2018), and a fully illustrated kids book based on the title track of their Holiday recording, The Sheep Save Christmas was released in 2019. The bands newest single OCEAN is available as a digital download and was used as a vehicle for fundraising for four non-profit organizations in St. Croix, USVI, where the duo travels each winter to perform.
Mamas Black Sheep has been burning up the road touring extensively throughout the continental U.S. and the Caribbean, playing nearly 200 shows a year. While much of their touring is done as a duo, they are occasionally seen as a trio, or full band with the additiRuon of Helen Hausmann on violin and/or Christine Havrilla on bass.
Ashland and Laura, produce magical tapestries of songs, weaving energetic color and rich texture to create an infectious and lively conversation between guitar and percussion. This thought-provoking duo will tantalize your aural appetite, regardless of your musical taste buds, with a diverse blend of blues, soul, country, pop, and more by unapologetically dipping into the well of all music genres. Its called soulful, poetic story telling with an irresistible groove.
