“A Holiday Music Box”, seasonal concert and sing-along with nationally-known folk singer Caroline Doctorow, will be playing at the Marlborough Arts Center on Sunday, December 6, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. With Caroline Doctorow on guitar, her band also features a fiddle and upright bass, that adds fun and resonance to the music and spirit of the afternoon.
This is a holiday treat for the whole family, a chance to sing along with a performer who has sung and recorded with a variety of prominent folk music performers including Nanci Griffith, Tom Paxton, John Sebastian, Annie Golden, Eric Weissberg, Pete and Maura Kennedy, Julie Gold, Christine Lavin, and Hugh Prestwood. She was chosen to be a formal showcase artist in Memphis, TN in 2010 by the Folk Alliance International. Her recent appearances include the Guthrie Center in Great Barrington, MA, Pete Seeger’s Beacon Sloop Corn Festival, the Katherine Hepburn Theater in Old Saybrook, Infinity Hall in Norwalk, CT, the Narrows Center for the Arts in Fall River, MA, the Gold Hall Theater in New York, and at the Patchogue Theater for the Performing Arts, sharing a bill with Suzanne Vega and Amy Helm. In her 25 year career as a folksinger, songwriter and record producer, she has also recently released several retrospective albums interpreting the songs of earlier American Fold Songwriters.
The Marlborough Arts Center is thrilled to have her bring her music to us and we are honored to have such a presence among us. You can hear her now by linking to her website at www.carolinedoctorow.com . She is the daughter of the world renowned author E.L. Doctorow.
