Meredith Snyder, Cat and the Moon, and SA combine forces to present a concert of original music ranging from folk to bluegrass to Indian soul/jazz/pop fusion. If you are a fan of talents as diverse as Joni Mitchell, Bela Fleck, D’Angelo, and Ravi Shankar, then this performance is sure to satisfy your hunger for music.

Meredith Snyder is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist known for her smooth vocal blend of folk and jazz. This born songwriter specializes in guitar, piano, and voice and is influenced by jazz and classical music. She explores a spectrum of styles and is influenced by the likes of Joni Mitchell, St. Vincent, and Fiona Apple. Snyder recently released her first three-track EP, Beginning, and opened a sold-out show featuring John Newman at the Brighton Music Hall.

Cat and the Moon is a blend of the driving and the calm, the traditional and the modern, the acoustic and the electric. Armed with technical prowess, this five-piece Boston band, which has been performing publicly since 2013, draws from Celtic and bluegrass roots to create an exciting and original new sound.

SA is a journey of Indian songstress and Berklee alumna Shilpa Ananth ’13. The music is diverse and multicultural, as she stays true to her past and present musical influences. “Sa” is the beginning and end of notes in the Indian scale, much like the “do” of its Western counterpart. With a fusion of soul, jazz, and world genres, SA will open your ears to a delicious palate of tasty surprises from the East and the West.
