Tom Pirozzoli is celebrating Reckon by the Light, the newest CD in his 40-years-and-counting career. He got his start busking on street corners and performing at anti-war rallies, eventually finding his way into the coffeehouse scene. His Fast Folk Music recordings are now part of the Smithsonian’s collection. He was named a winner in MUSICIAN magazine’s Best Unsigned Band Contest in the early ’80s, and has shared stages with artists like Greg Brown, Jesse Winchester, and Doc Watson. “Pirozzoli’s observations and travels bring seemingly dissimilar elements to harmony.” — Boston Globe
Dave Richardson has been writing, recording, and performing as a solo artist for over 10 years, weaving threads of folk, country, and traditional music. He took third place in the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival songwriting contest; was awarded a featured showcase at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference; and was an invited performer at the New England Folk Festival. “True folk rooted in the tradition is increasingly rarely encountered. All the more reason to celebrate the music of Dave Richardson.” — Fervor Coulee
