Joanne Lurgio Music Booking
Joanne Lurgio; a talented songwriter, combined with her gifted voice and wonderful guitar work, will prompt you to chase your dreams and offer a tale or two about ordinary people who, like her, excel and inspire. With a distinct Americana feel and New England charm Joanne moves from country to bluegrass, folk and r&b to gospel, all with a bluesy undertone. She is “that rare artist that never fails to deliver a great song lyrically, melodically and that voice never fails her.”
A multi-awarding winning singer/songwriter, Joanne has had the great pleasure to share stages with Amy Helm, Vance Gilbert, Cheryl Wheeler, Jon Vezner, Don White…
Writing songs of life, love and simply being during our ever changing lives are bound to make you ask, “Is she talking about me?”
