Armed with a voice and an entourage of instruments, songstress Kala Farnham set out into the world with one vision: To inspire through the transformative power of musical storytelling. Farnham has garnered numerous awards and recognition, including serving as the current Connecticut State Troubadour, 2020 Falcon Ridge Festival Emerging Artist, 2020 Great American Song Contest Finalist, and 2019 Rose Garden Performing Songwriter Contest winner. Farnham’s 2020 album, “Your Spirit Is a Work of Art”, is composed of thirteen musical vignettes exploring the imperfect beauty of the human condition; it has been described by Nick Noble of The Folk Revival as “a work of poetic insight… worth listening to again and again.” Drawing from a classical education and professional career in musical theater, Kala presents a hallmark reinvention of the folk tradition: her lush musical arrangements, compelling vulnerability, and vivid storytelling draws her audience into imaginative vantagescapes of the familiar world.
George Mallas has been writing and playing his piano-based songs since his teen years. George’s musical influences are some of the greats, such as Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and James Taylor. His melodic songs touch your heartstrings on subjects of love, longing and redemption. George has released two CDs, the latest his wonderfully received “unscathed.” George hosts the weekly radio show “The Songwriters’ Block” along with Melanie Berti, heard Wednesday evenings on Pawling Public Radio.
