Garnet Rogers   –   Maria Sangiolo Opens

Garnet Rogers has established himself as one of the major talents of our time. Hailed by the Boston Globe as a “charismatic performer and singer,” Garnet is a man with a powerful physical presence and a voice to match. His “smooth, dark baritone” – Washington Post, incredible range, and thoughtful, dramatic phrasing make his music literate, passionate, highly sensitive, and deeply purposeful. Cinematic in detail, his songs “give expression to the unspoken vocabulary of the heart” (Kitchener Waterloo Record). He sings extraordinary songs about people who are not obvious heroes and of the small victories of the everyday. Garnet moves his audience from tears to laughter and back again with his songs, humor and lightning-quick wit. “Garnet Rogers is capable of awe-inspiring and unpredictable stuff – and that includes more than just music.”

In 2016 Maria Sangiolo received an artist’s fellowship from CT Audubon, where she spent a week at the Edwin Way Teal Memorial Sanctuary in Hampton Connecticut. She has released on new EP digitally on CDBABY.com. You can find more info on her newly redesigned website www.mariasangiolo.com. Maria Sangiolo is a singer, songwriter and guitarist. She has been singing since she first heard “the angel of music” as a young girl riding in the back seat of her parents’ blue Chevy station wagon.  With the voice of an angel, she has been making folk fans in New England and nationally since 1989.
