Celebrate International Women's Day with an evening of enchanting voices and beautiful compositions by two locally-based artists
María José Montijo
María José’s life changed in 2009 on a beach in her native Puerto Rico, where a friend gave her a used Celtic harp. She began writing hypnotic, haunting songs for harp and voice that incorporate her eclectic musical interests.
María José’s songs grow out of an intuitive process of deep listening and the condition of being fully human in a confusing world. Her lyrics speak of paradoxes: mystery and certainty; doubt and faith; love and solitude; sorrow and connection; exile and feeling at home. Her music is informed by the images and rhythms of the natural world in all its vastness.
Lauren Ashley Brown
Native Texan living in Sonoma County, Lauren Ashley Brown is a lyrical voice for the new generation. With acoustic guitar, ukulele and heart penetrating voice, her songs inspire people to want to sing along to the soul-folk rhythms. Since 2002, Lauren Ashley has been a weaver of music, poetry, and united earth consciousness around the world, at folk music and conscious music gatherings, weddings, by the bedside in hospice care, and in concert venues of Northern California.
