Whoa! What a night last Saturday was.
Moonie got to meet three of his heroes: Steve Allain, a talented singer/songwriter both solo and with Cardboard Ox; Krista Baroni, a gorgeous singer/songwriter from Boston; and the fantastic Ian Fitzgerald, who will be playing the Newport Folk Festival next month.
Moonie was in heaven with this trio. Thanks to Krista for keeping him steady when he thought he might swoon.
John Fuzek is all over Rhode Island and beyond. He’s not only a musician himself, playing original music solo and Neil Young songs with Forever Young; he’s also a music promoter who puts on various shows and festivals to connect aspiring musicians with new fans. Moonie got to meet John at the Downtown Sundown Series, where he lines up four musicians a night on summer Saturday evenings to play at the national memorial in the heart of Providence. In his spare time, John’s a graphic designer and animal lover.
He’s also six feet taller than Moonie, so they kind of make a funny pair.
