Come out for a night of wonderful new album celebration with two local songwriters:
Chrissy Roberts and Carol Lester
Chrissy Roberts is a self taught guitarist who has been writing songs for over 20 years. Her latest project “Songs on the Fire Escape”, released in November 2019 (and available on all digital platforms) combines a combination of the genres she has grown to love. From folk to jazz to pop to a spiritual tune, this album has it all. Chrissy borrows singing technique from years of singing as a church soloist whcich she continues to do in her home parish in Westwood NJ. Chrissy’s guitar picking style is matched by none, with her ability to obtain precision notes with a flat pick for extra clarity. Chrissy also loves sharing her love of music with children and performs her original Kid Notes music at festivals and in classrooms.
