2nd Annual RISA Performing Songwriter Finals - Congratulations to Kirsten Maxwell!

A great night of music occured at the former Stone Soup Coffeehouse location in Pawtucket. 

 

The EVENING started out with our Special Guest, Mark Cutler,  showing why he has been the frontman of many groups over the years and a recent inductee to the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame.  Mark set the bar for our four performing songwriter contest finalists - Lenny Solomon, Allison Giuliano, Kirsten Maxwell and PJ Rogue.  Each of the finalists performed the 2 songs that were submitted and had the opportunity to show how their instrument and vocals, when paired with songwriting skills, can move a roomful of attentive listeners.

 

All of the finalists did their very best, but one had to be chosen!  Congratulations to Kirsten Maxwell!  Kirsten's award is an 'opening' spot on next seasons Stone Soup Coffee House schedule.

We'd like to thank Stone Soup Coffee House for their partnership on this event the past two years and into the future!  We'd like to thank Rick Wahlberg as the host of the evening and Mary Anne Rossoni as the MC for the performing songwriter contest. Additionally we'd like to thank Nick Noble (WICN), John Mailloux (Bongo Beach Productions) and David Correia (Celebrations Sound) for the judging.  Overall this event involved 50+ RISA members and our Stone Soup volunteers. It truly does take a village...
