SARAH DONNER: Princeton, NJ-based Sarah Donner is an indie folkpop star who has embraced the catlady inside her. She works the stage with a powerful vocals, zippy guitar, and a candid stage presence that is all Sarah Donner. Her YouTube videos with The Oatmeal have gone viral.
ANTHONY MULCAHY: A founding member of the Gealach Gorm Singer/Songwriter Festival, Ireland’s Anthony Mulcahy relocated to New York in 2006. Having played at some of the most popular music venues in New York City, Mulcahy has created his own unique style and brings a new dimension to simple acoustic melodies. His lyrics show an appreciation for humanity in all its joy and pain, romance and tragedy and he will perform songs from his debut album Lazy Days (2010) and For My Sins (2012).
MARTIN SWINGER: Maine and Asbury Park, NJ-based Martin Swinger is an atypical 50-something who can’t stop exploring music, songwriting and singing. Socially conscious, thought provoking and surprisingly entertaining, Martin is celebrated for his fluid voice and engaging delivery. He’s recorded 5 CD’s, won local and national songwriting awards, is a repeat performer at Kerrville Folk Festival and counts among his fans Pete Seeger, Peter Yarrow, Paul Stookey, Billy Jonas, Ezra Idlet, Vance Gilbert and John Waters.
SHARON GOLDMAN (host): Sharon Goldman offers sophisticated songwriting for grown-ups — the born-and-bred New Yorker (now based in Metuchen, NJ) has been called a “brilliant tunesmith” (New York Music Daily) whose vivid imagery and intelligent, inventive storytelling — combined with clever, catchy melodies and pure, precise vocals — take folk-pop to new, more powerful places.
Doors open at 7:30 on Saturday, March 28th. The Old Franklin School is located next to the Metuchen Fire Department at 491 Middlesex Avenue in Metuchen. Parking is available on Middlesex Avenue and in the Borough Hall parking lot across the street.
