Serena Ryder

Daughter Erin and I had opportunity to hear Serena Ryder, along with the Beauties, twice: once at a workshop and once at the Main Stage.  I liked Serena’s honesty and her ability to transcend the performer/audience relationship to entertain and to relate, both.  I treasured her new song, Merry-go-round, contributing to her authenticity as a performer.  She shared that music literally pulls her out of great sadness, having suffered depression at different times in her life.  She also told us a story about being lost at a fair and once again finding that the music of the merry-go-round soothed her anxiety.  A great performer!
