Carolann Solebello & Joe Iadanza
May 29 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$15
Kindred spirits and longtime friends CAROLANN SOLEBELLO and JOE IADANZA are perhaps the yin and yang of performing songwriters. Solebello’s smooth, warm voice and precise rhythm guitar perfectly dovetail Iadanza’s raw, honest vocals and graceful six-string virtuosity. Smart songwriting chops and emotional eloquence possessed by both blur the lines between tough and tender, masculine and feminine, Americana and folk. Their concerts are totally collaborative affairs, with Joe and Carolann playing and singing on each other’s songs and telling stories together throughout.
CAROLANN SOLEBELLO is a performing songwriter born and bred in New York City. Best known to folk audiences as a founding member of Americana trio Red Molly, she now tours both solo and with modern folk quartet No Fuss and Feathers. Carolann’s smooth, compelling voice and warm acoustic guitar style surely nod to rural folk traditions, yet her decidedly urban sense of rhythm and sophisticated vocal phrasing bend those traditional forms into more contemporary shapes. She is a proud member of the Jack Hardy Songwriters’ Exchange and has won numerous songwriting awards. Carolann released her fifth solo album, Shiver, in 2018. http://www.CarolannSolebello.com
Born of Italian immigrants and union activists, JOE IADANZA understands the passionate struggle of the American dream. Recalling Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, and Cat Stevens, this Long Island native’s music is rooted in classic folk: honest and raw. After a few years’ work as a producer (Spuyten Duyvil, Carolann Solebello), Joe returned to the road in 2019 with the release of his third studio album, Common Man. Filled with deeply personal stories, rich symbolism, anthemic hooks, and a classic production vibe, this new record is a leap forward for Iadanza, now confidently owning his own voice; a voice that has truly found something to say. http://www.joeiadanza.com
