Very Special Guest, Sloan Wainwright with Stephen Murphy

Sunday, April 6 at 10:30 a.m.

Sloan Wainwright belongs to a musical dynasty of impossibly gifted singer-­songwriters.

Her family tree (brother and folk-­music luminary Loudon Wainwright, sister-­in-­law Kate McGarrigle, nephew Rufus Wainwright, nieces Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche) reads like a who's who of contemporary folk music. Sloan's incredible gift is not only her unique songwriting ability but also her dramatically voiced rendition of original songs.

Defying standard categorization, singer/songwriter Sloan Wainwright consistently demonstrates her easy command of a variety of American musical styles -­-­ pop, folk, jazz and blues -­-­ held together by the melodious tone of her rich contralto with the end result being a unique and soulful hybrid.

Acclaimed by varied critics, including the following:

"...A lot of singer-­songwriters are whitebread. Sloan is whole grain." WFMT Radio, Rich Warren

"...Sloan Wainwright, whose regal voice could fell a redwood."
The Boston Globe

"...one of those singers whose performance is a force of nature."
Sing Out Magazine

" ...earth mother voice that she pours into unexpectedly sensitive blends of folk, jazz, blues and funk"
The New York Times
