A talented quartet of female singer-songwriters — Sloan Wainwright, Amy Soucy, Lara Herscovitch and Sharon Goldman (along with Stephen Murphy on guitars) — carry the torch sparked by the groundbreaking 1997-1999 Lilith Fair tour. The women will join forces on tunes penned by Lilith Fair luminaries (Shawn Colvin, Sarah McLachlan, Indigo Girls, Emmylou Harris, Tracy Chapman and many more) plus original songs inspired by the spirit of Lilith Fair.

Sharon Goldman: NJ-based singer/songwriter Sharon Goldman captivates audiences whether she is fingerpicking her acoustic guitar, gently tinkling the piano keys, or showing off her “beautiful voice and compelling stage presence” (Joe Jencks, Brother Sun). Honored as a Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist and NERFA Boston Showcase artist, her latest album release, KOL ISHA (A Woman's Voice) is a bold, unique song journey that has been called “an extraordinary effort” (Wanda Fischer, WAMC) and includes her song “Lilith,” inspired by the myth of Lilith Fair’s namesake.

Lara Herscovitch: “Pure musical poetry” (The Courier), Herscovitch is an “extraordinarily talented” (smother.net) singer-songwriter and former Connecticut State Troubadour, blending modern folk with blues, jazz, and pop influences into “marvelous, inventive and thought-provoking songs” (NJ.com). “A rising talent who is truly someone to watch for” (Acoustic Live in NYC), she has appeared on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor and tours regularly from Maine to Miami.

Amy Soucy: Beacon’s own Amy Soucy was the winner of the 2016 CT Folk Songwriting Competition and a 2016 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist. She is well-known for her vocal talents (“as comforting as a walk in the autumn woods” — Joe Pszonek, Radio Nowhere) and her timeless, poetic songwriting. Amy has a lifetime of varied singing experiences (choral, musical theater, even opera) and has performed, recorded, written and harmonized with a wide range of musical artists.

Sloan Wainwright: Defying standard categorization, singer/songwriter Sloan Wainwright consistently demonstrates her easy command of a variety of American musical styles — pop, folk, jazz and blues — held together by the melodious tone of her rich contralto, with the end result being a unique and soulful hybrid. Her family tree (brother and folk-music luminary Loudon Wainwright, nephew Rufus Wainwright, nieces Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche) reads like a who’s who of contemporary folk music, while media has praised her as "...one of those singers whose performance is a force of nature." -Sing Out Magazine
