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!

Pera Mediterranean in NY (September 12), NYC’s Feast of San Gennaro (September 14), Tappan, NY’s Italian Fest (September 14), Caffe’ Vivaldi (October 28), and more are on Villa Palagonia’s calendar for fall 2014. Furthermore, we’ve schedule a big photo shoot with photographer John Saponara (who photographed the cover of the best selling memoir Eat, Prey, Love), and we’ll be going into the studio to lay down tracks for our forthcoming album.
So after a marvelous two weeks writing new songs and rehearsing at La Chiara di Prumiano agriturismo in Tuscany, Italy in July, big things are afoot! Lots to do as we look forward to February 2015 when we’ll be featured on Chicago’s WFMT Folk Stage with Rich Warren and we release our debut record!
Stay tuned for details on all of the above on the Events page.
Villa Palagonia recently completed a successful tour of the mid-Western United States as part of Chicks with Dip’s” Joni Mitchell’s Blue: A Celebration.” We performed for wonderful, robust audiences at The Ark in Ann Arbor, MI, The Acorn Theater in Three Oaks, MI, and Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, IL (a sell-out!!). The highlight of the tour was a two-hour, live radio broadcast of “Blue” on WFMT’s Folk Stage hosted by Richard Warren.
Currently, Allison and Joe are writing new songs for a Villa Palagonia record to be released some time in 2015. Additionally, the band will be performing in the New York area in May, June, and July. (And perhaps in Sicily in August? …TBD!) See “Events” for details.
We hope you’ll join us!
