“Trusty's Sweet Novena CD well worth the wait. This CD has been long in the making, and it's a stone cold winner. Think Tracy Chapman and give her twice the power, twice the silk and three times the range. Yeah, that's what I said.”
 - Rick Massimo, Providence Journal Music Scene 

 

This program is made possible with help from the Robert Danforth Watkins Fund for Lifelong Learning.
