Villa Palagonia has set out on the “Left Bank,” as we like to call our new home in Englewood, New Jersey. We are thrilled to join many of our friends on the west side of the Hudson, yet still remaining true to our New York City roots with frequent visits for work and play in the City.
As we settle in to our new headquarters, we are purposefully keeping our schedule less demanding for a few months, but we are certainly keeping our toes in the action. We have a few appearances in spring 2018, that we hope you’ll join us for!

May 1: A World of Women’s Voices Presented by the College Club of Northern New Jersey
A World of Women’s Voices
Woman’s Club of Ridgewood, 12 Noon
The Woman’s Club of Ridgewood
215 W. Ridgewood Ave.
Contact the College Club of Northern New Jersey about attending at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A World of Women’s Voices is a powerful, unique, collaborative performance featuring three artists — Sharon Goldman, Bev Grant and duo Villa Palagonia — who celebrate the power of women’s stories from around the world, from Italian folk tales and biblical stories to African women, New York immigrant history (including the Triangle Fire), personal/childhood narratives and labor movement anthems.
We are offered an enriching personal and community experience not only through the stories told in the songs — which the artists knit together by illustrating how, even with our different backgrounds, we all are essentially connected — but also through encouraging us to sing and, in some cases, dance along!
June 24: On Hootenanny Cafe Radio Show on WTBQ with Jon Stein
On Sunday, June 24 we’ll be live on Hootenanny Cafe. You can tune in to hear an entire broadcast co-hosted by Villa Palagonia with in-studio performances.
Villa Palagonia in duo form headed to Maryland earlier this month to record a series of videos for your viewing pleasure. Please enjoy “Marco the Barber” recorded by JB Nuttle of World One Video.
We will be releasing the videos throughout the next few weeks. Let us know what you think!
