Ladies of Late Night

THURSDAY, AUGUST 3
10 PM

A showcase celebrating CNY's Female Songwriters. This iteration of the Ladies program features Bess Greenberg, Mama G, and Amanda Rogers! Enjoy three diverse sounds of these amazing musicians to the tune of Otro's craft beverage selection and late night food men

Bess Greenberg is a singer-songwriter and visual artist based in Binghamton, NY. With rich, warm vocals and open hearted lyrics, Greenberg performs on upright bass and a vintage hollow body electric guitar. Her songs build in passionate swells, and her conviction is a reminder that our greatest strength can be found in vulnerability.

Mama G is one half of the celebrated folk duo Chris James & Mama G. She is a rambunctious cat with a passion for honey and the mandolin! A talented songwriter and picker, she will showcase some of her new unreleased material and some CJMG favorites!

Amanda Rogers is often compared to the likes of Tori Amos for her fairy aesthetic and classical roots, Tom Waits for her dark and literary lyrics, and Carole King for her Tin Pan Alley Pop sensibility. This has continued her 15 year musical journey on her self paved career path as an original and independent touring and recording artist.
