Cole Porter’s Fiddle – Presented by Janie Barnett Stoned

Soul Picnic: The Laura Nyro Project – Presented by Diane Garisto

Well-known vocalists, JANIE BARNETT and DIANE GARISTO, have joined forces to present an evening of the music of Cole Porter and Laura Nyro, two transformative songwriters who were known for passion and poetry in their rule breaking compositions.

JANIE BARNETT (Cole Porter’s Fiddle) has worked with such music industry icons as Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt and Rickie Lee Jones. After releasing her successful Americana album of 2017, You See This River, Janie began developing the songs of her favorite composer, Cole Porter, in a roots music setting. Cole Porter’s Fiddle is the culmination of that inspiration.

DIANE GARISTO (Stoned Soul Picnic: The Laura Nyro Project) has had the good fortune of singing with such industry notables as Steely Dan, Paul Simon, and Nile Rodgers. In the mid-‘90s, Diane was tapped to work with her childhood idol, Laura Nyro, in her celebrated Harmony Group backing trio. Nyro and the Harmony Group toured the world and recorded three albums. Today, Diane feels performing Nyro’s music in Stoned Soul Picnic is her way of “keeping Laura’s flame burning.” Together, Janie and Diane have created an evening that will immerse you in the longing, lusting, and loving of these iconic artists, Cole Porter and Laura Nyro.
