Lara Herscovitch & Adam Michael Rothberg

“Pure musical poetry” (The Courier), Lara Herscovitch’s music is an original blend of modern folk with blues, jazz, and pop influences. With her voice “clear and smooth like expensive liquor,” she stands “above and beyond the pack” (Northeast Performer). Former Connecticut State Troubadour, Lara brings a charm, authenticity, and love of performing that immediately resonates with diverse audiences.

She has appeared as a guest on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor and tours from Maine to Miami. She also has extensive experience as a policy social worker, and has worked in the US, Latin America and Asia on behalf of disadvantaged individuals – focusing on education, community development, and juvenile justice.

Echoes of these themes resonate throughout her music: “Singer-songwriter Lara Herscovitch doesn’t write songs just for the ears, but also for the heart and soul.” (Daily Journal, Tupelo MS)


Adam Michael Rothberg’s music captures the heart and soul and all the folk-rock-pop and the appeal of the great songwriters of the ’60s, ’70s and beyond, while happily occupying his a style and genre all his own. He plays everything from guitars, bass and mandolin to keyboards and drums. He has performed with Joan Baez and produced and recorded with some of the nation’s top singer-songwriter talents, including Dar Williams.His third studio album Soul of a Man, named for the Blind Willie Johnson song, is a collection of ten carefully crafted songs touching on a wide range of universal themes from love and death, to failed dreams and a great appreciation for life—at home and away, all with vision and a fresh voice.
