Come and enjoy an intimate performance of original music with Songa. Singer/Songwriters Mario and Sherry Friedel will take you on a journey with their unique instrumental sound and vocal blend. Their 2020 released recording, “Dreams Are in the Making,” includes songs about love, life, loss, resilience and hope. Multi-instrumentalists, these artists will take you from folk to country to blues to Latin jazz and back again. Rooted in the Nashville songwriting tradition, you won’t want to miss their honest lyrics and pure vocal harmonies. Songa was voted the “fan favorite” in the 2020 Great River Folk Festival Songwriting Contest.

Mario was produced and published by Buzz Cason, Creative Workshop Studio, Nashville, TN and signed to Universal Records in 1971 as a member of White Duck, Jimmy Buffet’s first Coral Reefer Band. In addition to Jimmy Buffet, Mario has shared the stage with John Hiatt, The Allman Brothers, Dr. John, Don Kloetzke, Nashville songwriter Keith Duke, Phillip Russell, Wisconsin blues legend, Howard Guitar Luedke, and award-winning Wisconsin jazz artists Janet Planet and Tom Washatka.

 

Sherry is a performer, vocal music educator, church music director, and co-producer of children’s recordings Cancionetas and Wisconsin Integrated Student Creations, Volumes 1 and 2. She performed in and produced “’Tis Love That’s Born Tonight,” a recording with the vocal group Serenity in the 1990s. Mario and Sherry’s cd The Gift is a collection of original Christian songs released in 2004.

Eric Lewis grew up with music in his house from his banjo-playing grandpa and singer/songwriter mom. This multi-instrumentalist hails from Memphis and dazzles as a solo performer, but is known for collaborating with other musicians. Eric says he has been “influenced by any [music] that is good,” no matter what the genre. He says, “I just love to play music!” Lucky for us, he will be doing just that for our BHFS audience!
