Songwriters in the Round
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 this season premiere, Lisa invites Matt Shipman, and Rick Turcotte and Scott Rittall to join her.
Lisa is an award-winning singer-songwriter who just released her 10th solo recording (8th CD). This newest, "Once in a While", swings with 12 of Lisa's favorite jazz standards, accompanied by 6 piece jazz band. Lisa blends her roots in all forms of Americana and Roots music to create something unmistakably her own. For over 25 years, Lisa has brought joy and comfort to listeners of all ages. Livingston Taylor said of Lisa (after she opened for him), "Wow, I haven't heard a voice like yours in 30 years. You sound like the original women of folk." To order cds go to www.lisaredfern.com
Calling Maine home for many years, Matt is no stranger to the performance circuit throughout New England and afar. These days Matt can be heard singing his original and traditional material and playing the guitar, mandolin, bouzouki and open back banjo with Darlin' Corey, Erica Brown and the Bluegrass Connection, High Range, and in various Irish music ensembles. Matt has put out recordings with High Range and Erica Brown and played on others with Ron Cody's "Talking Rake", Joe Walsh's "Sweet Loam" and Brad Strauss' "Close to the Bone". He also has released 2 recordings of his own.
Rick Turcotte & Scott Rittall (duo)
Singer-Songwriter Rick Turcotte creates both foot-stomping rhythms and heart-felt ballads. He has been writing and performing since his teens, combining a mix of different styles. Returning to Maine after living in Austin Texas, Rick crossed paths with Scott Rittall from Boothbay. Scott, a long-time percussionist from the band Thunder Bay, maintains a soulful groove on the cajon. "It's all about the positive vibe we try to convey through the music", says the duo.
