News from Carolyn
What a month July was! From 2 nights performing for a third time with Don Was and Don’s All Star Revue at the Michigan Theatre in Jackson, Michigan, and at the DIA Film Theatre in the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) for The Concert of Colors, thank you! All the artists celebrating Motown’s 60th Anniversary together were excellent. We also had a Poets & Pies show with poets from Detroit and San Francisco in St. Clair Shores – nice crowd, pie, words and music.
Next! On Saturday evening, August 24th, we’ll be at The Focus Hope Photography Festival at Focus Hope Detroit. We’ll be performing at 6:00 pm, and the Festival runs from 2 pm to 9 pm with Detroit Photographers and photography, music and food trucks. Free admission! If you’re in Detroit, hope to see you at Cool Cities Park on Woodrow Wilson Street in Detroit – directions and details athttps://www.eventbrite.com/e/focus-on-detroit-photography-festival-tickets-63495252008
Labor Day weekend, we’re at The Hamtramck Labor Day Festival Sunday afternoon, September 1, 2019 at 4 pm in the heart of great food, music, carnival rides and more! https://hamtownfest.com/ Hope to see you in Hamtramck!
Also, we’re returning to Earthwork Harvest Gathering from Friday to Sunday, September 20th to September 22nd in northern Michigan’s Lake City Earthwork Farm with so many great bands. Erin Zindle (The Ragbirds) will be sitting in with us on violin! Erin and I have written a new song together, too this summer, being recorded this Fall. http://earthworkharvestgathering.com/
And my book is coming out this Fall. Detroit (Street Princess) poems & lyrics is the 1st of 2 volumes. I’ll be appearing on WDET-FM 101.9 NPR Detroit and having several book openings, too 🙂
Finally, we’re hoping to release new music in 2020 with the summer U.K. Tour
xo Love, and thank you for listening,
“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.”
