MANSFIELD, Mass. – Three of Boston’s top singer-songwriters will come together at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, 2019, at Mansfield’s Rose Garden Coffeehouse. Though Danielle Miraglia, Jenee Halstead and Lisa Bastoni are award-winning singer-songwriters in their own right and are regular solo or band performers on the national folk music circuit, they will come together for a special night at the Rose Garden (tickets: http://bit.ly/RG19threeladies).
The three will be sharing songs, harmonizing, supporting one another and enjoying the camaraderie of their rare talents on one stage on one special night.
Danielle Miraglia brings a rock and blues influence with powerful vocals. As she says on her website, she “comes armed with a strong steady thumb on an old Gibson, an infectious stomp-box rhythm and harmonica with tunes ranging from heart-felt to socially conscious that will move both your heart and hips.” She is a 2019 New England Music Award winner and was nominated in 2018 and 2019 for the Boston Music Awards. She’s currently touring a new CD called ““All My Heroes Are Ghosts” with her band Danielle M and The Glory Junkies.
Lisa Bastoni has been nominated this year as Folk Artist of the Year by the Boston Music Awards. And it will be no surprise if she wins, since her list of accolades and awards goes back years, including top prize from the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival. Her Americana vibes and lyrics hit close to home. Her vocals are powerful, her images vivid, her stories personal in nature, and she’s touring on a new CD “How We Want to Live.” The album was produced by Sean Staples, and features guest performances by Mark Erelli, Rose Cousins and Lula Wiles. Bastoni has opened for other Massachusetts natives, including Lori McKenna and Arlo Guthrie.
Jenee Halstead has made a musical journey that took her from her native Spokane, Washington roots to Boston. She has evolved from a folk singer to an ethereal rocker and has explored all forms of music, she has tried everything. Styles that included medieval choral works, Led Zeppelin and Dolly Parton tugged at her, even as she earned her degree at Gonzaga. She was turned off by the approach at the Berklee College of Music, lamenting “They make everybody use a laptop.” She prefers a less mechanical, more organic approach. She began playing in Cambridge’s Lizard Lounge, and was introduced to Patty Griffin, with whom she startlingly shares a vocal quality and artistic bent.
