Description: Featuring Maureen Andary, Farewell Milwaukee/Ben Lubeck, and Rose Polenzani. The artists of "In The Round" all participated in the Mountain Stage competition, an annual performance and songwriting event, now in its 10th year, which is an outgrowth of NewSong Music and National Public Radio's show, "Mountain Stage." Maureen Andary is one-half of the Washington, DC based folk/pop/jazz duo The Sweater Set that just finished a tour performing with folk legend Michelle Shocked. Ben Lubeck, front man of the Minneapolis Americana/indie band Farewell Milwaukee focuses on the power of honest, confessional songwriting with no pretense or ulterior motives. Rose Polenzani is a Boston-based folk/pop singer-songwriter. NewSong Music, whose two-fold mission is to build a supportive community of performers and songwriters across all genres of music and levels of skill, and to identify exceptional artists in order to develop their careers and introduce their music to a broad audience, partners with Lincoln Center for the first in a series of concerts.
