Digital Recording, Mixing & Mastering Gibbsboro, NJ Page 26 Volume 41 Number 08 • July 10, 2019 to July 31, 2019 • www.OOTONLINE.com Singer-songwriter Marion Hal- liday is a lesson in contrasts. A Philadelphia transplant via Ken- tucky, she has built her success on her innate ability to seamlessly blend her laid-back Appalachian roots with the more urgent, gritty landscape of the “City Of Broth- erly Love” as the songwriter and vocalist for the beloved folk trio Trickster Sister. Now, after several years as part of the delightful ensemble, the renowned trouba- dour is, once again, pushing the boundaries of her music as she re- leases her first solo full-length album Rings Around Saturn. Featuring 11 brand new songs, Hal- liday’s debut effort will be celebrated during her much-anticipated CD release party at the Philadelphia Folk- song Society, the organization behind the renowned Philly Folk Festival, which Halliday is a Co-Op Member, on Saturday, July 13. During this not- to-be-missed event, Halliday will be joined by band Trickster Sister as well as a number of other highly-regarded musicians including Meghan Cary. In addition to her CD release party, Halliday will also perform songs from her new album at this year’s 58th Annual Philadelphia Folk Festival, the country’s longest-running folk festival featuring dozens of premier acts including David Crosby, Margo Price, The Mavericks, Joan Osborne, and many more. The artist will appear on Friday, August 16 on the Lobby Stage and Sunday, August 18 on the Culture Stage. “The release of my first full-length solo album marks a very pivotal time in my career – one that I’ve been work- ing toward for over two years,” said Halliday. “While I love being part of a band and the energy and creativity that comes from that experience, I’m ex- cited to share a more intimate, personal side of me through these songs.” Rings Around Saturn, which Halliday describes as “Bluegrass and bourbon- infused, women-powered, original Americana music,” is an eloquently- produced, thought-provoking album that straddles the line between “reflec- tive and beautiful” and “playful and hard-driving,” she says. “The one thing I always want my fans to take away from my music is the stories,” said Halliday. “I want them to share these stories with others and be ones that they want to hear time and time again.” Rings Around Saturn was produced by Halliday and Jim Salamone and engineered by Salamone and Todd Me- Caughey. It was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Sal- amone at Cambridge Sound Studios. Musicians featured on the album include: Jane Halliday (violin, banjo, uke, backing vocals various tracks), Donna Bostock (upright bass, various drums and percussion, backing vocals various tracks), Brad Hinton (guitar, lap steel various tracks), Peter Farrell (keys various tracks), Jim Salamone (electric guitar, bass, ambient effects, drums and various percussion through- out), Todd MeCaughey (electric guitar, various percussion throughout), Dave Mowry (slide guitar Track 6), Desiree Haney (cello Track 4), Irene Lambrou (backing vocals Tracks 1 and 11), Meghan Cary (backing vocals Tracks 1, 2, and 11), Lisa Jeanette (backing vocals Tracks 1, 2, and 11), Mike Parisi (bass on Track 4) and Giada Tripepi (cajon, tambourine on Track 11). The Marion Halliday CD release party at The Philadelphia Folksong Society (6139 Ridge Ave., Roxborough) starts at 8 PM and is an all-ages show. For more information, visit https://pfs.org.
