This event is all ages
Though perhaps technically a singer-songwriter, Ian Fitzgerald prefers the term 'folk singer,' as it more accurately describes the tradition in which Ian's music is rooted. From early twentieth century field recordings through Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams, Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt, Gillian Welch, and hundreds of artists in between, Ian has been influenced by one of the sturdiest strains of American music.
Ian has been performing since 2004, and his schedule just keeps getting busier. He's performed at venues throughout the eastern U.S. and Canada, including the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival's Emerging Artist Showcase; Club Passim's Cutting Edge of the Campfire Festival; the Word X Word Festival; the In The Dead of Winter Festival; and the New England Americana Festival, among many others. In 2009, his song "Lillian" won the Boston Folk Festival Songwriting Contest and earned Ian a performance spot at the festival. And earlier this year, Ian opened for the great Tracy Grammer.
Since April of 2012, Ian has been joined in live performance by harmony vocalist Courtney Gallagher. In addition to developing harmony parts for several of Ian's newest works, Courtney has added her voice to a number of Ian's older songs.
Ian and Courtney perform at coffeehouses, clubs, concert halls and venues of all kinds both as openers and headliners. They can also be heard on Ian's brand new album, No Time To Be Tender.
