The best way to keep up spirits and enjoy the coldest season: warming up with heartfelt and sensuous sounds from four lovely leading ladies of music – and adding a little wine! Three locally based, all four are accomplished writers of song as well as talented interpreters of song. Lauren Agnelli, Marni Rice, Sandra Lichter and Joell Jacob pack a real entertainment punch with four distinctive “flavors” ranging from acoustic folk rock, Americana, French cabaret, blues, soul, and torchy jazz. What’s more, they will be playing in intimate groupings – either as solos, duos, or three pieces, nothing more. There’s nowhere to hide – no loud bands – just four bewitching, beautiful songstresses.

Lauren Agnelli

Americana folk rocker Lauren Agnelli has performed many shows with the Small Town Concert Series, including the recent, successful Shoreline Soup Kitchen Benefit at the Kate. She just played another show in New York City, with violinist Dana Takaki and co-writer Dave Rave. She will perform a tour de force of self-written songs from her three-decade 50+ cd release career, including new originals.

Sandra Lauren Lichter

Acoustic folk rock songstress Sandra Lauren Lichter will perform songs from her new cd, Die on the Diamond. She’s got “the charm and sweetness you want- the depth and grit you need.” Her recent appearance at The Kate for the SSK&P benefit with husband Eric proved that – and then some!

Marni Rice

Marni Rice is a Chanteuse-Accordioniste and Theater Artist from New York City will be performing musical excerpts from her show “Songs of an Immigrant: Tales from Paris,” an autobiographical solo-play about an American woman who leaves her homeland with only an accordion and a handful of songs to discover the city of lights.

Along with Lauren and Sandra, soulful torch singer Joell Jacob is also no stranger to the stage at The Kate; she most recently played the Vietnamese waitress in the Margreta Stage Production of Lary Bloom’s “Wild Black Yonder” to four sold-out houses. A lifelong singer, Joell’s musical groups include Groove Clinic and Chester’s own Exit 6 band. She performs tonight with Chris Gosman(Exit 6) on guitar,premiering two new original songs.
