The Gallery at St. John's
Award-winning Boston folk singer/songwriter (and Easton native) Terry Kitchen and New Jersey folksinger Mara Levine will be performing at The Gallery at St. John’s; there is a suggested donation of $10.
Called “one of New England’s best songwriters” by The Boston Globe, Terry Kitchen’s songs are portraits of ordinary people and emotions, captured with extraordinary compassion, honesty and humor. His new CD The Post-American Century reached #19 on the national Folk-DJ radio chart. Kitchen’s songs have won the Mid-Atlantic and USA Song Contests and been runner-up in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. An Easton native, Kitchen attended St. John’s as a child, and his 1999 CD Blues for Cain and Abel is dedicated to former St. John’s minister John Steinbruck. He began performing with Mara Levine in 2008, and the duo released an EP CD in 2012. Kitchen also published a novel in 2013, Next Big Thing, about his experiences in the ’80s rock band Loose Ties.

Called “one of the best singers of her generation” by Christine Lavin, New Jersey folksinger Mara Levine creates beautiful interpretations of traditional and contemporary folk songs. Reviewers have compared her voice to folk icons Judy Collins, Joan Baez, and Joni Mitchell. Mara’s second solo recording, Jewels and Harmony, was the #3 album on the Folk-DJ airplay chart for 2013. She is also a talented jewelry designer, and visually lights up the stage when she performs. “Mara…sings with a clear, pure sound that imparts a lovely ethereal tone to her music and her repertoire is studded with some of the most memorable tunes in the folk genre. Whether singing lead vocals or luscious harmonies, Mara’s voice draws the audience into an alternate realm.”-Lori Falco, The Folk Project. More on Mara at www.maralevine.com
