Lara Herscovitch and Kristen Graves

With her voice “clear and smooth like expensive liquor,” she stands “above and beyond the pack” (Northeast Performer).

She has appeared on A Prairie Home Companion and tours Maine to Miami. She also brings extensive experience as a policy social worker, in the US, Latin America and Asia, focusing on education, community development and juvenile justice. Echoes of these themes resonate throughout her music. www.LaraHerscovitch.com

Gathering Time and Mara Levine

 

Long Island-based-folk-rock harmony trio Gathering Time swept the international folk-DJ chart in 2016, as their new CD Keepsake came in as the #1 album with the #1 single and five other songs in the top 25, making them the #1 act on the Folk DJ-List. Voted best band runner-up

(and top folk band) in the 2011 Long Island Press readers' poll, Gathering Time is like a high-energy Peter, Paul & Mary or a coed Crosby, Stills &

Nash, with a bit of The Byrds and a jot of Joni Mitchell; a head-turning

folk-rock harmony trio described recently as "getting a whole beehive-full

of buzz" on the northeast regional folk scene. Fans on the Long Island folk scene have known them for nearly a decade for their astute songwriting, faithful interpretations of 1960s classics and creative interpretations of traditional tunes as well as their stellar vocal blend.

 

Mara Levine Called one of the best singers of her generation by Christine Lavin, folksinger and jewelry designer Mara Levine has been creating beautiful interpretations of fine traditional and contemporary folk songs for many years. Folk DJ Jim Marino referred to her as "golden-voiced”.

Her repertoire has been described as “extraordinary and unique.” Her most recent album, Jewels and Harmony received stellar reviews and was the #1 album on the Folk DJ chart for January 2013 as well as reaching #3 overall for 2013. In addition, the album was named #4 cover album of 2013 by Cover Lay Down. www.maralevine.com

“Mara sings with a clear, pure sound that imparts a lovely ethereal tone to her music and her repertoire is studded with some of the most memorable tunes in the folk genre. Whether singing lead vocals or

luscious harmonies, Mara's voice draws the audience into an alternate realm." Lori Falco, performer liaison Folk Project (NJ)
