Harried Americans Second Saturday: Guest Artist The Fabulous Mary Ann Redmond

Our theme this month is: The Dog Days of Summer
Well, the Harried Americans will, of course,  be singing songs about heat and summer.  BUT …did you know that the Dog Days of Summer actually have NOTHING to do with dogs lying around in the heat?

It’s all about Sirius… a constellation.THE STARS, baby! And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why we’ve got a STAR for our August show…

The Fabulous Mary Ann Redmond!

Mary Ann Redmond has been awarded 24 Wammies (Washington Area Music Awards.) In 2013 alone she won three:  Blues/traditional RB Female Vocalist,  Song of the Year, and Songwriter of the Year for  her song Love Me Anyway (co-written with Todd Wright.)  Love Me Anyway (“L’amour peut prendre froid”) was covered as a duet on both Celine Dion’s and Johnny Hallyday’s 2012  French release CDs.  Celine Dion’s album, Sans Attendre,  became a commercial smash success in all French-speaking territories, and was certified Diamond in France, three-times Platinum in Canada, Platinum in Belgium, and Gold in Switzerland and Poland.

So …we are going to let Ms. Redmond sing about whatever-in-the-heck she wants!
