Miss Isabella Rainsong and Her Traveling Companion: A One-Guitar Show (Feb. 23rd, 2019 7pm)
February 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
While waiting out a storm in an Amtrak train station, a disheveled Traveler shares the story of his three-year journey as the traveling companion of Miss Isabella Rainsong – a captivatingly beautiful black guitar. Miss Isabella Rainsong and Her Traveling Companion is filled with stories and songs born out of the shared experiences of this unlikely pair as they encounter folks along the way while riding the rails all across America. Filled with Magical Moments, this “one-guitar show” takes you on a journey of discovery about the power of music to redeem even the darkest and most broken heart.
Half the proceeds go to support scholarships for music educators of disadvantaged youth.
Two Acts, including a 15-minute intermission.
Written and performed by Ross Martin

What critics are saying:
“From the very moment the light came up, Martin shows his audience that this is not a concert. This is not a play. This may not even be entertainment, but what it is, is an immersion into a life experience that will run the gamut of emotions and hopefully leave you feeling human as you come out the other end. Martin is a living, breathing concept album that will leave you yearning for his next release… This show should not be missed…” -Mike Zellhofer, Backstage Baltimore
“[Ross Martin’s] original music is catchy and compelling, his characterization of a down-on-his-luck Southerner is sharp, and his overall message of the healing power of music is uplifting… [His] song about learning to waltz is one of the finest new musical-theater compositions I’ve heard in ages.” -Matthew J. Palm, Orlando Sentinel
