We’re heading to the southland in the springtime, and we are so excited!
Villa Palagonia will be opening for folk luminary Joe Crookston.
Please join us for a fantastic evening of music for a fantastic group of music lovers–Focus Music!
Joe and I are so grateful to Joe Pszonek of Radio Nowhere on WMSC-FM for presenting us at the DJ Showcase at the North East Region Folk Alliance (NERFA) conference in November. It was an amazing experience for us, and we have been thrilled with the reception. We made terrific contacts at the conference, and hope to be touring around the region in the coming year… which brings me to our next news!
We are going into the recording studio at the end of December/beginning of January to record our debut album. We are getting everything ready and rehearsing with Dave Mancuso (percussion) and Greg Maker (bass) in preparation. It’s going to be a busy holiday season for us, but that means laying the ground work for an awesome 2015!
More news about our record to come!
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.
