Park Ridge, New Jersey
Meghan Cary with special guest Joe Iadanza - Cancelled
Our Lady of Mercy Church, 2 Fremont Ave (LOWER GATHERING SPACE), Park Ridge, New Jersey 07656 United States
Singer/songwriter Meghan Cary will bring her inspiring music to the Acoustic Café on March 15th! Special guest Joe Iadanza will open the show!
Meghan Cary didn’t mean to be a musician. But when her fiancé unexpectedly died, she picked up his guitar, figured out how to play it, and wrote her debut record, earning her Billboard Magazine’s esteemed Critic’s Choice Award. “I wrote my grief into music and sang my way out of the abyss. I keep making music to help others connect with their own stories and find their joy.” Cary continues to share the healing power of music with the community that has rallied around her message of hope and being heard.
Her latest album, SING LOUDER, debuted in the top 10 on the US/International Folk DJ Chart, and John Platt of WFUV extols, "These times require songs of compassion and commitment. Meghan has several which inspire us to reach our higher selves, and she sings them with such infectious joy you can’t resist joining in."
With masterful storytelling and award-winning songs, Cary engages audiences on a powerfully personal level, inviting them in and leading them through an experience that has been called healing, inspiring and outrageously joyful. Her message of unity and the power of raising our voices together infuses every show, and her song, “Sing Louder”, has become an anthem for the music-loving community.
Special Guest Joe Iadanza
Born of Italian immigrants and union activists, NY singer/songwriter Joe Iadanza understands the passionate struggle of the American dream. With a voice that recalls Cat Stevens and Harry Chapin and songs that hearken to the impassioned storytelling of Springsteen and Leonard Cohen, Joe’s music is rooted in classic folk: honest and raw. His recent release, Common Man, is a folk/rock love letter about trust, starting over and charting new relationships.
Doors open at 3:30 PM. Refreshments available.
Proceeds benefit the OLM scholarship Fund for St Vincent’s parish in Vallieres, Haiti.
