- Hillsdale, NY
Rachael Sage is a soulful vocalist and innovative multi-instrumentalist who has earned a loyal following with her dynamic piano playing, delicate guitar work, expressive vocals and improvisational audience interaction. Joy!, Rachael’s first holiday EP, is a playful folk-pop collection featuring a cover of the classic “Joy To The World” – an uptempo re-vamp with a tinge of Americana twang. Other tracks include Sage’s original Hanukkah song “Tchatchkes & Latkes”, and her first Yiddish recording, “Umru Meine”. Sage has shared stages with Judy Collins, Shawn Colvin, Dar Williams, Beth Hart, Colin Hay, and Ani DiFranco. She’s received numerous songwriting awards including The John Lennon Songwriting Contest (Grand Prize) and several Independent Music Awards. A record-breaking 22 placements on Lifetime’s TV series Dance Moms have resulted in 10 million+ YouTube views. Look for Rachael’s forthcoming album Myopia, out this Spring on MPress Records/ILS/Caroline.

Rachael Sage Performs at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival
Singer-songwriter and five-time Independent Music Award winner Rachael Sage will return to the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in Hillsdale, NY (45mins outside of Albany) to compete in the Emerging Artists Showcase. Ads one of 24 finalists, she will perform two songs, rain or shine, and hopefully earn enough audience-votes to return in 2014 as one of the festival's "Most Wanted", on the main stage. Fellow New Yorker Andy Mac will be accompanying her, in their debut as a musical duo! Falcon Ridge main stage performers this year include Dar Williams, Mary Gauthier, and Susan Werner.
