Singer-songwriter, performer, and keen observer, Marc Douglas Berardo’s songs are sharply drawn and cast a net on unusual and beguiling characters and places. His songs have been recognized at many prestigious national festivals and events such as The South Florida Folk Festival, The Wildflower Art and Music Festival, and the legendary Kerrville Folk Festival. For over thirty years MDB has performed thousands of shows big and small including nights with The Doobie Brothers, Little Feat, John Hiatt, Martin Sexton, Livingston Taylor, Kevin Welch, Red Molly, Guy Clark and late David Olney among others. Berardo’s interview and live performance featured on the Sirius/ XM Satellite Radio show The Village was voted one of the best of the year by listeners. No Depression Magazine called his last CD Whalebone: “sincere, fluid, charming and above all gripping.”
“Louise Mosrie may well be the brightest young folk-oriented artist to emerge from Nashville in many a year.” – Rich Warren, WFMT-FM Chicago
“Mosrie’s compositions are thoughtful, refined creations.” – Maverick Magazine
A Louise Mosrie Coombe show is warm, intimate, funny, and thought-provoking…she weaves together narratives between songs peppered with humorous personal stories and historical anecdotes with her unique Southern POV. The first thing most people remark on is her voice. Louise is a classically trained singer with a big pop voice (and a touch of twang) and an award-winning songwriter. Audiences also love her stories behind the songs and honest polished delivery. She has won top honors at songwriting contests around the country including Kerrville (TX) New Folk (2x winner – the only one!), Telluride Bluegrass Festival (CO), Rocky Mountain Folks Fest (CO), Falcon Ridge Folk Festival (NY) and SolarFest (VT). Louise’s historical songs have been used in two documentaries broadcast on PBS. She has played at esteemed venues such as The Bluebird Café in Nashville, The Birchmere in D.C., Club Passim in Boston, XM/Sirius in D.C., 30A Songwriter Festival (FL) and Caffe Lena in Saratoga, NY.
