News from Carolyn
It’s finally on its way! The new book, Detroit (Street Princess) will be released in late September with a soft opening, to some really nice book signings coming up in Detroit, Metro Detroit and Ann Arbor, Michigan. Grateful for the many great remarks on the book already – wow. Aquarius Press and I will also have a pre-ordering link on Amazon if you’d like to get an advance copy. More details coming, with links and more, and the first signings are here: September 28, 2019 at the Made in Michigan Festival in Allen Park, Michigan, then we’re moving on to other great places! While revising the cover, we’d love to include it here, but…shhh…almost here! There’s a fabulous week-long feature coming on NPR Detroit/WDET-FM 101.9 on Ann Delisi’s Essential Music and Culture Shift, the week of October 21st and weekend of October 28th. Stay tuned to 101.9 in October x https://wdet.org/shows/ann-delisis-essential-music /https://wdet.org/shows/ann-delisis-essential-music/
We’re also performing this month the weekend of September 20th to September 22nd at Earthwork Harvest Gathering in Lake City, Michigan. This is one of the best festivals in northern and southern Michigan – in the region, really – and we’re honored to be back! we’ll be playing with the excellent Erin Zindle this year on several violin numbers on our set, and Carolyn Striho Group hits at 2 pm on the Cedar Stage, Saturday September 21st, 2019. If you’re up north, come on over and catch a spitfire roundup of wildly original bands, friends, food, drink, massage, Water Blessing, yoga, shops for vintage clothes and henna, and campfire energy xo http://earthworkharvestgathering.com/artist?a=184&n=Carolyn+Striho http://earthworkharvestgathering.com/artist?a=184&n=Carolyn+Striho

Love, peace, and many thanks,
“Love the colour of your heartfelt voice, lovely intro on ‘Cornered Room’ great song! ‘Let It Go’ another favourite of mine, nice rapping, and love the gypsy feel on ‘Russian Inn’ beautiful violinist. Stunning album, love it”
Striho continues to share her brilliance, effortlessly moving from bluesy and jazzy to belted out rock & roll. Her latest release, Afterthought, showcases all of these styles, along with a few more that might surprise people. The musical poetry is undeniably Striho however, and she manages to pull everything together with the ease of a seasoned pro and the flair of a master illusionist. She makes her own creative path and people can’t help but follow where she leads…
“Afterthought moves through a host of musical moods, from the moodier, darker vibe of the opening title track to exotic gypsy-rock feel of “Russian Inn” to the lively, driving sound of “Love Won’t Stay Close” which you can hear exclusively for now in this Freep First Spin debut.”
