JAM Award Winner Loretta Hagen To Make Special Appearance at Godfrey Daniels Friday June 21
Loretta Hagen, recently awarded "Top Female Songwriter of the Year" by JAM (Jersey Acoustic Music) Awards, NJ's equivalent to the Grammy's, will make a special one-night-only appearance at Godfrey Daniels, the region's premiere live music listening room, Friday June 21 at 8pm. Loretta has performed at many Pennsylvannia area venues and heard on area radio including "Notes From Home" with host Mike Holliday on WBZH. Rich Mosley of The Morning Call has called Loretta "..conventional folk, enjoyable,..consistently strong."
One part Americana, two parts Folk, a dash of Country-flavored rock - all served up by multi award-winning, chart-topping songstress Loretta Hagen, delivering rich alto vocals, polished award winning lyrics and tightly woven harmonies; the hallmark of her musical career. Also aNJ Folk Festival Songwriter Competition Winner, and CT Folk Festival Finalist, Hagen recently released her third CD, "Mud and Stone", featuring uplifting heartfelt ballads, playful up-tempo country swing, and cool bluesy grooves.
“Mud and Stone” debuted at #10 on Folk DJ Charts, consistently #1 on the Roots Music Report for NJ, #5 Top 50 Folk Albums RMR, and is receiving airplay throughout the US, Canada and Europe. John Apice contributor to No Depression calls Mud and Stone “ first class, top tier, a true contender as an artist to reckon with.”
Loretta has shared the stage with Pete Seeger, Roger McGuinn, Steve Forbert, Richie Havens, and Gretchen Wilson to name a few and plays premiere stages across the Northeast. Loretta’s melodies leave folks feeling as if they are listening to their own stories set to song. Scott Cullen of Concerts at the Crossing raves, “With her smart, insightful lyrics, and catchy melodies Loretta Hagen certainly knows her way around a song. Plus judging by my audience’s reaction at her recent appearance at Concerts at the Crossing, she’s got a knack for connecting with a live audience as well."
Loretta will be joined by guitarist Gary Hagen and PA area percussionist Josh Kanusky.
This special evening with Loretta gets underway at 8pm, doors opening at 7pm. Godfrey Daniels is located at 7 E. 4th Street, Bethlehem PA. Tickets are $15.50 and can be purchased at the Godfrey Daniels Box Office from 2-6pm, Tuesday to Thursday, via email at Reservations@godfreydaniels.org, by phone (610)-867-2390 or online at www.godfreydaniels.org.
