" Below and Above" by Julie Dougherty "I’ve been singing since the mid-sixties, starting with my sister, Kathy, performing folk music at coffeehouses in the Boston area, such as the Unicorn Coffeehouse and the King’s Rook (we were lucky enough to open up several times for the Kingston Trio in the 70’s) …through the years since then, I’ve travelled much of the country singing Irish music, original folk-rock music, country-rock music in the 80’s, and have made several trips to Nashville, where I placed two original songs with two major publishing firms and almost moved there in the early 90’s....but my roots are in New England! I also hosted a songwriting cable TV show, called Songwriters In The Round for three years, on which we featured many fine songwriters including Noel Paul Stookey, Chris Smither, and Al Kooper, to name just a few.For more info visit
