NO FUSS AND FEATHERS
April 20 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
NO FUSS AND FEATHERS is the “heck-of-a-good-time” collaboration hatched by MILES & MAFALE, KARYN OLIVER, and CAROLANN SOLEBELLO. Shaken or stirred, NFF serves up a dynamic, cohesive cocktail of delicious harmonies, infectious rhythm, and spontaneous hilarity — with award-winning songwriting always at center stage. Individually, the four are nationally-touring performers who have charted at the top of Folk and Americana radio and appeared on stage at some of the nation’s most respected festivals. Collectively, they are an incorrigible bunch of musical co-conspirators bent on giving their audience an unforgettable show.
Catherine, Jay, Karyn, and Carolann are four long-time friends who write and tour independently, but decided it would be fun to play together sometimes. What started out as an occasional songwriters-in-the-round side project quickly evolved into a full-fledged band. Sometimes referred to as a modern folk quartet, NFF is truly a mix of the styles of the three songwriting entities: pop-infused-literate folk, bluesy-country-tinged acoustic, and Brooklyn-edged-Americana.
All four members of NO FUSS AND FEATHERS have backgrounds in musical theater and improv, so what happens between the songs is just as important as songwriting and musicality at a NFF concert. Laughter and showmanship, along with warm friendship and camaraderie, make the audience part of the performance, so each NFF show is a unique and unforgettable concert experience. NO FUSS AND FEATHERS’ first CD, Traveling Circus, was released in January 2016.
