The Early Mays (Ellen Gozion, Emily Pinkerton, and Judith Avers) are unfurling their

full artistic vision with the release of their self-titled CD on Saturday, October 11,

7:30pm at St. Andrew Lutheran Church (304 Morewood Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15213).

The Pittsburgh-based, American roots trio--recognized for signature three-part

harmonies and gorgeous fiddle, banjo and guitar--will also welcome to the stage Jason

Rafalak, Brad Yoder and Matt Siegler at this special concert.

What started out at a candle-lit concert of Appalachian music on Christmas Eve in

2011, evolved into a tour, a trio, and a friendship of three women. Since these

beginnings, The Early Mays have shared songs based in a love of American tradition, as

well as an exploration of their own songwriting voices: “...they sang harmonies that

made my own heart sing. Close, perfect, high and sweet -- as natural as breathing"

(Susanna Robinson Kenga - LBSPY, Lewisburg, WV).

Judith, Emily and Ellen celebrated many musical victories as solo artists before becoming

a trio. Judith’s songs took her to the winners’ circle in the Woody Guthrie Songwriting

Competition, and to the final rounds in Dave Carter and Falcon Ridge contests. Emily

traveled--fiddle and banjo in hand--on a Fulbright grant to South America, and she

spoke about her life-long love of Chilean folk music in an interview on NPR’s All

Things Considered. Ellen showcased her ballad singing and visual art as an instructor at

the Augusta Heritage Center, and she was also a American Music Abroad finalist with

the US State Department.

With co-producer Lurch Rudyk of Broadcast Lane Studios (Sara Harmer, Kathleen

Edwards, Rufus Wainwright), The Early Mays have poured their hearts--and all their

experience--into this recording. Live takes and vintage microphones recreate the

enveloping spirit of their concerts, and the analog production makes the album sound

like a folk gem from the late 1960s. This new album,

of these three friends. These three great musicians. It shares a spark that began three

years ago and will hopefully leave you shining a little more brightly because of it.

Raising a glass with them was dinner chair David Malone, who did an outstanding job of attracting heavy hitters, all to aid the fund's philanthropic efforts to promote peace, culture, education and community development in Ireland.
