DOWNERS GROVE – Nationally renowned for her powerful performances and passion for empowering women, folk rock chart-topper Meghan Cary invites fans to “Sing Louder” with her as she celebrates International Women’s Day on March 8 at Two Way Street Coffee House in Downers Grove.
During the show, Cary not only will perform hits from her latest album, "Sing Louder," with her musical partner Peter Farrell, but also give the audience an intimate look at the inspiration behind the record that was heralded as one that “inspires us to reach our higher selves.” (John Platt, WFUV FM), a news release said.
“So much good can come from sharing our stories," Cary stated in the release. “When we hear and relate to someone else’s story, we’re inspired to share our own and maybe even write a different ending. I choose to share my story through song because music is the most powerful tool I know for breaking through barriers of difference and fear, and authentically connecting with others. On international Women’s Day, we celebrate women around the world, young and old, and we encourage all women to raise their voices and be heard. Let’s all sing louder.”
"Sing Louder," which debuted among the top 10 on the U.S./International Folk DJ Radio Charts, is being played by mainstream radio in more than 40 markets throughout the country and in Canada. One of those stations is Chicago’s own WFMT 98.7, where Cary has been invited to perform on “Folkstage,” hosted by Rich Warren on March 9. The one-hour concert is performed for a select studio audience and broadcast live on WFMT at 8 p.m. [www.wfmt.com].
Cary also will support International Women’s Day by unveiling her debut book, "Sing Louder: The Stories Behind the Songs." The companion to her critically-acclaimed album, the collection of essays provides fans with a deeply introspective look into the inspiration behind her album.
