Join us for an evening of song with Colorado based artist Maudlyn Monroe and and Burlington local and founder of She Sings Out Loud, Emma Back!

In solo sets, maudlyn monroe hits the stage with an up-tempo emo feel—an electrified mix of "jazz Manouche" folk and NY 70's-inspired lackadaisical punk. maudlyn monroe's voice, with its three octave range, has been called "angelic" and "soulful", "bird-like" and "desperate", and lends to quiet folk contemplation, shocking soul, and raw punk sounds. With influences of old-time folk & bluegrass, soul & jazz, maudlyn monroe's sincere, striking original songs and subtly-crafted lyrics—along with charismatic performances of Cape Verdean morna/coladeira, French cabaret, Russian folk, and jazz standards on the banjo—have won stage time in Colorado, Texas, New York, Vermont, South Dakota, and Minnesota; on stages at the Lyons Folks Fest, Fort Collins' New West Fest and FoCoMX; at the Mercury Café, BKLYN's Trash Bar and Boston's Lizard Lounge (previously as slp)

Emma Back's multi-dimensional performance features vocal percussion, haunting melodic storytelling, jazz and klezmer inspired violin riffs and harmonic influences ranging from Eastern-Europe to American Roots. Her 2019 concert series showcases new music that examines the root of strife and joy as felt through loss/love, death/birth, sickness/health and the inner-life of human beings.
