This Friday evening, Sept 30th, at 8 pm. Sissy will bring her international, highly talented band to perform for our fortunate community. Hailing from Sicily, Sissy speaks English fluently and describes many of her songs and chats with the audience in such a warm way that everyone has a fantastic time, even if you don't understand the Sicilian dialect. Reservations are suggested for the intimate venue of The Buttonwood Tree. Seats are $15 for this show. Refreshments are available including wine and beer.
“Sissy is the voice and the image of Sicily, her songs are starting a new era for Sicilian popular music. Thanks to her, we can discover a new universe within traditional Sicilian music, extremely rich and powerful melodies and soundscapes, that transport us immediately to this island’s streets and fields full of life and art, something very different, worthy of the utmost attention.”

Review (Jazz Fusion): “Africannu” Sissy Castrogiovanni
What I love about Sicilian jazz singer Sissy Castrogiovanni’s music is that it brings together different cultures seamlessly and with care. You can hear their distinct qualities yet they fit well together similar to a well-made tapestry or tasty fusion cuisine.
Having studied jazz improvisation, vocal technique and percussion in Italy and then gaining her degree in Jazz Composition at Berklee, not to mention having worked with Jack DeJohnette, Bobby McFerrin and Patrice Rushen, Ms. Castrogiovanni has acquired formidable skills which are evident in her compositions.
