Anne Marie Menta & Dick Neal
Anne Marie Menta is a long time New Haven singer/ songwriter/ guitarist with three CDs to her credit and a new one in the planning stages. Her songs are pop-informed folk, covering the usual themes of love, loss, and life, but deliver the listener to the not-so-usual place of recognition and solace. Personal meets the universal. Anne Marie will be joined onstage by her sometime producer and collaborator, Richard Neal, on guitar and mandolin, who has just released his own CD of original tunes, “A Step Up.”
Cygnus Radio is an internet radio station.
That means you can listen to Cygnus on any device that can access the internet. It also means we're unbound by the conventions of terrestrial radio. Let's face it: there is a lot of great music out there that corporate radio just won't touch - but at Cygnus, we're joyfully in it up to our ears. On Cygnus Radio, you'll hear great local and independent artists, songs you've never heard before, and songs you wish you heard more often. You'll also hear live DJs who spin their own music and tell you what they really think. Turn us on and we'll turn You on.
Married duo the Sawtelles are a balance of four elements, alternate-tuned guitar, various drum kit configurations, and two voices. They consist of Peter Riccio on guitar and vocals and Julie Riccio on drums. Sparse but intricately arranged pop that is as lush as it is threadbare makes what is played as important as what isn’t. Their strict DIY philosophy aligns them more with the hand-painted Sun Ra LP’s of 1950’s and 60’s than it does with those striving for mainstream commercial success.
