We are proud to release THE WOODSTOCK SESSIONS, three short music videos of Ed performing “St. Vincent de Paul,” “When You’re Dreamin” and “New Year’s Prayer” at a cabin in Woodstock, NY. Playing with Ed during the session were the extremely talented Ann Klein on guitar and lap steel, Lee Nadel on bass, Rich Mercurio on drums, with the stunning vocal musings of Tabitha Fair and Rachael Yamagata.
Links are available below for each video. We hope you enjoy watching them as much as we enjoyed producing them!
Autumn has briskly made its presence felt in New York and with this early fall weather comes excellent news – Ed has added two new shows to his schedule.
On October 16th, Ed will be joining Ms. Rachael Yamagata at City Winery in Chicago as the opening act. Show details and tickets available HERE.
Then on October 22nd, Artists Without Walls (AWoW) will showcase several talents at NYC’s Cell Theatre located in the heart of Chelsea in which Ed will perform 2-3 songs (About 15 minutes). AWoW is an organization purposed to inspire, uplift and unite people and communities of diverse cultures through the pursuit of artistic achievement. Through events and online presence, they aim to inspire, uplift and unite by building a multicultural community that springs from “creative chemistry,” fostering learning and education, and cultivating artistic talent. Showcase information available HERE.
Upstart Business Journal recently featured Ed in a lovely article written by Megan E. Doherty titled, “The troubadour CEO: An ‘ignorance is bliss’ tale from PineRock’s Ed Romanoff.” Focusing on his two professional careers, PineRock CEO and musician, the article weaves in storytelling and trusting your instincts as the two ties that bind these separate yet similar worlds together. Read the article HERE.
The year old CD of Ed’s is now available as a beautifully packaged vinyl LP, complete with a free digital download of the entire album. Buy it from the Store.
In addition to The Benefit Concert for Chernobyl Children’s International at Kilkenny’s Set Theatre on September 27th, new shows are being scheduled around Ireland. This time he’s bringing along a special friend – Rachael Yamagata!
Stay tuned for final dates and venues.
