No Fuss and Feathers is the “heck-of-a-good-time” collaboration hatched by The YaYas (Catherine Miles and Jay Mafale), Karyn Oliver, and Carolann Solebello.  Onstage, the band is a dynamic, cohesive cocktail of delicious harmonies, infectious rhythm, and spontaneous hilarity — with award-winning songwriting always at center stage.  Individually, the four are nationally-touring performers who have charted at the top of Folk and Americana radio and appeared on stage at some of the nation’s most respected festivals.  Collectively, they are an incorrigible bunch of musical co-conspirators bent on giving their audience an unforgettable show.

Carolann, Karyn, Catherine, and Jay are four long-time friends who are based in New York and tour independently of each other but decided it would be fun to play together sometimes.  What started out as an occasional songwriters-in-the-round side project quickly evolved into a full-fledged band.  Sometimes referred to as a modern folk quartet, No Fuss and Feathers is truly a mix of the styles of the three songwriting entities: pop-infused-literate folk, bluesy-country-tinged acoustic, and Brooklyn-edged-Americana.

One of the cohesive elements of a No Fuss and Feathers show is that all four members have theater backgrounds, so just as important as the songwriting is what happens between the songs.  They share their friendship and camaraderie with the audience, making the audience part of the performance.  No Fuss and Feathers’ first CD, Traveling Circus, was released in January 2016.  Check them out at http://www.nofussandfeathers.com.

Parking is available on the street and at the SEPTA train station approximately one block away. Handicap parking spaces were recently added behind the building, accessed via Lansdowne Court.
