Co-headline concert with Carolann Solebello and Joe Iadanza at Stage 33 Live
BELLOWS FALLS, VT — Stage 33 Live welcomes two headlining acts in one intimate listening event.
Carolann Solebello is a performing songwriter best known to folk audiences as a founding member of Americana trio Red Molly. Born, bred, and based in New York City, she tours as a solo artist and with the modern folk quartet No Fuss and Feathers. Her smooth, compelling voice and warm acoustic guitar style nod to rural folk traditions, but her urban sense of rhythm and sophisticated vocal phrasing bend tradition into contemporary shapes. She has won numerous songwriting awards, and her fifth solo album, Shiver, was released in February 2018.
The son of Italian immigrants and union activists, Joe Iadanza knows the passionate struggle of the American dream. With echoes of Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, and Cat Stevens, the Long Island native’s music is rooted in classic folk: honest and raw. He’s heralded for his deeply personal songwriting and fluid, percussive guitar playing. Also a producer, his credits include Spuyten Duyvil’s The Social Music Hour, Vol. 1 (nominated for Album of the Year by Folk Alliance International), and Carolann Solebello’s recent full-length, Shiver.
These kindred spirits and longtime friends are a yin and yang of performing songwriters, with Solebello’s warm voice and precise rhythm guitar dovetailing Iadanza’s from-the-heart vocals and graceful six-string. The smart songwriting and emotional eloquence they share blurs the lines between tough and tender, masculine and feminine, Americana and folk.
They perform at Stage 33 Live on Saturday, March 23, at 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls, Vermont. Doors open at 7:00, show starts at 8:00. Recommended minimum advance donation per person is $15 — or $20 per person at the door. 100% of it goes to the artists, and we warmly encourage you to appreciate them with an extra bump if you can.
The event will be recorded and filmed.
Important notice of limited seating!
Stage 33 Live has seating for 40, plus standing room. Chances are that we’ll run out of chairs for this special listening event, so we’re accepting advance entry-donations that double as chair reservations. The recommended minimum advance donation per person is $15 (it will be $20 at the door), and 100% goes to the performers. If you can, we warmly encourage you to appreciate them with an extra bump.
You don’t need a Paypal account to make an advance entry donation / chair reservation, just a credit or debit card. After you donate, you should be redirected to a “success” page and get an email from Paypal. You’ll also get a confirmation email directly from us within a day or two (assuming you entered a working email address). The name you gave will be on a list at the door. All you have to do is show up.
The reserved chairs will be held until 10 minutes before showtime — don’t be late, you’ll lose your seat. The reserved chairs aren’t assigned, just reserved; arrive early for your choice. Doors will open at 7:00, show starts at 8:00.
If the chairs have already all been reserved (or if you prefer to take a chance by not making an entry donation in advance), you can bring your own seating. The suggested minimum donation at the door is $20 per person.
Paypal charges registered nonprofits like us $0.30 per transaction + 2.2%, which we add to the advance donation amount so that the performers get the full minimum suggested donation. You can change the number of reservations after clicking the button.
Stage 33 Live invites the public to listening events of music performances and spoken word presentations that are recorded for radio, TV, and the internet. Stage 33 Live is not a bar, club, restaurant, or venue with regular hours. Its mission is to help local and regional talented and knowledgeable people reach wider audiences on multiple platforms; the stage is also open to established performers and presenters, as their participation helps bring attention to others still getting their foot in the door. Stage 33 Live allows only original material.
