Chosen from a list of more than 40 entries sent in from all over the country, the three finalists are: Lara Herscovitch from Durham, CT; Zoe Mulford, Swarthmore, PA; and Mike Laureanno, Providence, RI. According to Rose Garden Artistic Director Mac McLanahan, “This year’s entries were by far the highest caliber we have ever seen. Selecting the three finalists was a difficult, almost painful, thing to do.”

LARA HERSCOVITCH
website 

Lara Herscovitch balances a busy songwriting and performance career with her other passion... advocating for justice and fairness in the Connecticut juvenile justice system. Four days a week, she does policy and advocacy work for the Connecticut Juvenile Justice Alliance. Many of the songs she writes, including the two entered in the competition, were inspired by the challenging and gratifying work she does.

MIKE LAUREANNO

Mike Laureanno also manages to pursue an active music career along with his full-time job as an electrical engineer working on submarine technology in Newport, RI. In addition to performing and writing, he maintains a recording studio in Providence where he records his own music and produces CDs for area artists such as Michael Troy. For 12 years, he played bass guitar for legendary New York Fast Folk founder, Jack Hardy.

ZOE MULFORD
website

Zoe Mulford will travel to the Rose Garden from her home in Swarthmore, PA. She considers herself quite fortunate not to have a “day job” so she can devote as much time as possible to writing and performing. She plays both guitar and clawhammer banjo and will use both when playing her two songs on May 17. The night before the Rose Garden finals, she’ll be performing at The Minstrel in Morristown, NJ.

All shows start at 8 p.m. It's a good idea to arrive at 7:30, when the doors open,
to get your choice of the best seating!
