Featuring Meghan Cary
With masterful storytelling and award-winning songs, Cary engages audiences on a powerfully personal level, inviting them in and leading them through an experience that has been called healing, inspiring and outrageously joyful. A frequent performer at such venerable festivals as Philadelphia Folk Festival, Spring Gulch, Huntington, DelMarVa Folk Festival, and music venues around the country, Cary’s message of unity and the power of raising our voices together infuses every show, and her song, “Sing Louder”, has become an anthem for the music-loving community. Her smoky voice, emotional singing, and vulnerable writing garner favorable comparisons to Melissa Etheridge, Brandi Carlisle, and even Bruce Springsteen.
Also, be sure to check out the River Rock Project, an independent project by singer/songwriter activist Meghan Cary. Fueled by the desire to film and share Cary’s empowerment anthem, River Rock, and inspired by the compelling story of the Justice Bell and the women who employed this powerful symbol in the fight for women’s right to vote, The River Rock Project shines a spotlight on women who fought for equality throughout history and gives voice to women who are continuing that fight today. Meghan’s engagement with the history of women’s suffrage makes her a perfect lead-in to our month long celebration of the 100th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage in the U.S. next month.
Meghan Cary will open the 2021 Woodstock Folk Festival
