On Saturday, March 12, 2011 First Parish Sudbury Unitarian Universalist will once again be bringing you a night filled with wonderful music performed by some of the best singer-songwriters around. Nancy Beaudette is an award winning singer/songwriter who has been on tour and in the studio several times.  The Pavao Family Band is a wonderfully creative trio who will be starting the night off for us.  Although their group is young the songs they sing and the style in which they performed make you think they have been around for a lot longer.

Please join us for what promises to be an evening of good home spun folk music with the hospitality to match..

Nancy Beaudette fills the stage with fun, upbeat performances in true troubadour fashion. Her writing is reminiscent of singer songwriters of the sixties and seventies, and has the emotional edge of a woman with some heartfelt life experience. “I want to write music without having to edit personal feelings.” She doesn’t just write songs, she paints them. When you listen to her music you may find yourself seeing pictures, glimpsing a rich palette of colors in her guitar playing, and noticing that the beautiful honesty of her voice and her lyrics points directly to your own heart. Come to one of Beaudette’s shows and you will experience first-hand all the warmth and welcome of a Canadian kitchen party!  On-stage and off, Nancy practices hometown hospitality, taking special pleasure in “greeting you at the door.”  Blending brave and honest song-writing, first-rate musicianship, and a huge helping of native Canadian wit and generosity, Nancy Beaudette is an artist of signs and songs and heart  and all the signs point to rousing success!

We are very lucky to have the Pavao Family Band performing for us in March as this will be one of their rare performances during the school year. The Pavao Family Band is the creative collaboration of Steve Pavao and his sons Victor and Aidan. This band does everything together as a family, from performing to making decisions about how to market and produce their music. They started playing music together during the boys’ grade school years in  the summer of 2010. As Victor turned 14 and Aidan 12, they recorded their first CD single containing two of their best known original songs, “Time to Go” and “Block Island Song”.  Then they commenced on a month-long tour of widely-varied venues in RI, MA, and NH during August to share the new songs.  Steve is still writing and performing very actively, and is embarking on a U.S Northeast tour in late March to share his music with a wider audience.  His solo version of his song “My Beautiful Friend”, long a staple of Pavao Family Band performances, will be appearing on the forthcoming compilation being produced by The Starving Artist Collective in Keene, NH.
