HONESDALE, PA — Sloan Wainwright will perform at The Cooperage on November 2 at 8 p.m. as part of the RiverFolk Concert series. Wainwright belongs to a musical dynasty of singer-songwriters. Her family tree includes brother and folk-music luminary Loudon Wainwright, sister-in-law Kate McGarrigle, nephew Rufus Wainwright, and nieces Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche.

Wainwright consistently demonstrates her easy command of a variety of American musical styles—pop, folk, jazz and blues—held together by the melodious tone of her rich contralto. With a discography of eight original CD releases to her credit, Sloan continues to write, sing and perform live. In addition, Sloan has written numerous musical compositions for theatre and dance and teaches at many of the best-known master songwriter series and workshops.

The suggested donation is $18/reserved, $20/door. Light fare will be available from Willow River Café. BYOB. For reservations and more information call 845/252-6783 or visit www.riverfolkconcerts.vpweb.com.
