Mount Toby Outdoor Concert

BEV GRANT is a veteran social activist, feminist, labor singer/songwriter, and “cultural worker” from Park Slope Brooklyn. She is the co-creator of a women’s labor history multi-media presentation entitled “We Were There!” and has numerous albums, including “We Were There!”, a solo CD entitled “IN TUNE”, a 7-song EP with her former group, Bev Grant & the Dissident Daughters, called “CHEEKY WOMAN”, two albums with her former band, “Human Condition” and her CD with Ina May Wool, entitled “WOOL&GRANT”. Her latest album “IT’S PERSONAL” is an introspective and heart-felt collection of personal songs.

Bev is an award-winning songwriter and has used her music as an organizing tool in both community and union organizing. She has written songs for issues or campaigns, such as “Take A Walk In My shoes” written for a domestic violence survivor’s advocacy group called Voices of Women Organizing Project (VOW). and “No Sweat!”, performed by Bev and co-writer, Pat Humphries, at the University Students Against Sweatshops (USAS) conference.

CAROLANN SOLEBELLO is a performing songwriter born and bred in New York City. Best known to folk audiences as a founding member of Americana trio Red Molly, she now tours both solo and with modern folk quartet No Fuss and Feathers. Carolann’s smooth, compelling voice and warm acoustic guitar style surely nod to rural folk traditions, yet her decidedly urban sense of rhythm and sophisticated vocal phrasing bend those traditional forms into more contemporary shapes. She has won numerous songwriting awards. Carolann released her fifth solo album, Shiver in 2018.

“Carolann Solebello may be the best-kept secret in the world of singer-songwriters…She possesses one of the best voices in the singer-songwriter world with vocal body and spot-on intonation…” – Rich Warren

Suggested donation: $20 to $30 (Pay as you are able)
