Sloan Wainwright and Us! at Towne Crier Cafe - Sunday, June 11th

Sloan Wainwright and Us at Towne Crier Cafe  Sunday June 11th


June 11, 2023 - 7:00 pm

Sloan Wainwright is a songwriter, singer, performer, teacher, mentor and collaborator. A unique hybrid of pop, folk, jazz and blues, Wainwright’s music is unified by her melodious tone and rich, powerful contralto. Over the course of a 30-year career in music, she has played the great concert halls, the most storied listening rooms and top music festivals while also teaching at the nation’s leading music retreats. She has inspired hundreds of students on their creative journeys and collaborated with dozens of musicians, writers, choreographers and performers.

Most of all, Wainwright is an artist. As a member of an acclaimed family of artists (brother Loudon Wainwright, sister-in-law Kate McGarrigle, nephew Rufus Wainwright and nieces Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche), Wainwright has charted an artistic path all her own, one based in close observation, joy, and spiritual connection.

Now, standing on the foundation of a rich and diverse career, including a solid and impressive discography of 11 original CD releases to her credit, Wainwright is tapping into fresh material as she continues to provide transformative, healing, and energetic experiences for her audiences. Always looking to grow as an artist, these days Wainwright is pursuing new collaborative partnerships, exploring traditional music, and developing fresh avenues for teaching and mentorship.

“They say you stand a chance of being a good musician if you first become a good human being. Sloan is a wonderful singer and all-round musician, and as a teacher really overlaps into the role of a life coach ~ she has given skill and confidence to so many.” ~ Richard Thompson

Us!, comprised of singer-songwriters Glen Roethel, Judy Kass, and Amy Soucy, happened when three musical seekers joined their eclectic talents and influences to write songs encouraging positive change, unity, and dialogue. The trio spices their message-driven compositions with luscious harmonies, robust melodies, and unexpected twists and turns. The Us! co-write, “Too Much Crying” garnered a Gold Award in the Open Category of the 36th Mid-Atlantic Song Contest. Currently, Us! is in the studio working on their first album with an anticipated release later this year.

Tribes Hill Song Circle Gatherings

Monthly First Monday Gatherings nbspHave Been Discontinued Impromptu Tribes Hill Gatherings Encouraged
A Tribes Hill Gathering at George Gierer's home.

Although the traditional first Monday gatherings had been suspended, due in part to Covid, the opportunity to host an impromptu gathering of the host's design, any day of the week, is encouraged now.

In the past, Tribes Hill held monthly gatherings that included a song circle on the first Monday of every month. Sometimes we would change the date to accommodate holidays. They began at 6:30 with dinner prep and music. We served our traditional pasta and salad dinner with potluck additions at 7 pm. After dinner, music would continue until about 10:30 with a collaborative song share with our friends.

Email Rick Rock at or phone him at (914) 564-9212 if interested in hosting a gathering.
