BELLOWS FALLS — Carolann Solebello has a history with Bellows Falls, having been a three-time performer at Roots On The River plus appearances at fabled local venues Oona’s and Boccelli’s. She’s a performing songwriter from New York City, best known as a founding member of Americana trio Red Molly. She now tours as a solo troubadour and with modern folk foursome No Fuss and Feathers. Her smooth, pitch-perfect voice, compelling lyrics, and warm yet accomplished acoustic guitar work nod to rural folk traditions while an urban sense of rhythm and sophisticated phrasing plant her firmly in the present. She’s won a pile of songwriting awards, and is currently working on her sixth solo album.
Marc Douglas Berardo composes song-length fictions that mine deep feelings and real-life lessons and situations, and delivers them with an engaging onstage presence and deft storytelling. His sharply drawn, award winning song-portraits cast a net on unusual and beguiling characters — circus retirees, ex-pats in Florida rum bars, union ironworkers, old poets, aimless New York City debutantes, near-death car crashes, hard-nosed fishermen, and the changes that experience brings to everyone. He has shared bills with heavyweights like The Doobie Brothers, NRBQ, Guy Clark, Vassar Clements, Ralph Stanley, Buffalo Springfield, Martin Sexton, Steve Forbert, Justin Townes Earle, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Cheryl Wheeler, Lucy Kaplansky, Livingston Taylor, David Olney, Jimmy LaFave, 10,000 Maniacs, and John Hiatt.

Stage 33 Live is a casual and intimate industrial-rustic listening room in a former factory hosting local, regional, and national performances and presentations of original material. No bar or kitchen, the stage is the mission; coffee / soda / juice / water and weird snacks available by donation. More info about the nonprofit, all-volunteer project, and this and other upcoming events, online at stage33live.com
Stage 33 Live gratefully acknowledges the help of so many individuals without whom none of this would be able to happen, and institutional support this season from The Island Corporation, the Vermont Arts Council, Guilford Sound, WOOL-FM, the Rockingham Arts & Museum Project, and Chroma Technologies to help fund improvements and maintenance, and generally smooth out a lot of the rough edges. Stage 33 Live is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and all donations are deductible to the fullest extent. Volunteers run the thing from stem to stern.
