Moore Music is proud to present Marylou Ferrante in concert
on Saturday night, April 12, 2014.
Marylou Ferrante was described by music critic and writer, Daniel Gewertz, in the Boston Herald, as the Bay State's finest female acoustic blues interpreter.
Marylou is an artist who performs pre-war blues from the 1920s & 30s. She covers major artists from the delta to east coast piedmont style players such as Robert Johnson, Charlie Patton, Blind Boy Fuller, and Memphis Minnie along with mandolin players such as Yank Rachell.
Her passionate expression of these old songs comes from a love of the music and the arrangements themselves, as well as what she says is an appreciation for "the history of these folks and the difficult circumstances they endured."
Marylou has honed her craft listening to the old recordings and learning from some of the great blues players today such as Paul Rishell, Guy Davis, Robert Jones, and mandolin great Rich DelGrosso. Marylou has opened for the professional touring artists including: Chris Smither, Guy Davis, Paul Geremia and Geoff Bartley among others. She has performed at The Hatch Shell, Club Passim, Natick Center for the Arts, Tupelo Music Hall, Sally O'Briens, Cantab Lounge, The Bull Run, and more. Marylou Ferrante was chosen as Worcester's Union Music Hometown Heroine in 2010. Most recently Marylou opened for Maria Muldaur at Mechanics Hall in Worcester, in February, 2014.
"Blues guitarist, mandolinist, singer (and Worcester native) Marylou Ferrante opened up the concert with some exquisite finger-picking and powerful vocals on Memphis Minnie's "Too Late" and "Chickasaw Train Blues" and several other traditional blues."
