The Secret Sauce, featuring Janet Feld, Esther Friedman and Jackie Damsky, evolved from time spent enjoying playing music together. Performing with people who’s music you love, and are a blast to hang out with is how they roll.
Janet Feld is an award winning performing songwriter, appearing at folk festivals and coffeehouses from coast to coast throughout a nearly three decade career. She teaches private lessons and offers video lesson programs to people of all ages. She teaches guitar and songwriting at The Passim School of Music and is the founder and Chief Music Officer at Janet’s Planet: Music Lessons for Humanoids, Inc.
Esther Friedman is a Boston-based acoustic singer & songwriter. She started writing songs in the mid-nineties after moving to the area from Cleveland, for Lesley University’s Expressive Art Therapy, Master’s Degree program. Inspired by buskers who braved street corners and t-stops she started writing and performing. Today, she provides therapy in a private practice, counseling those in recovery from trauma, while performing and song writing as much as humanly possible.
Jackie Damsky was originally trained as a classical violinist, and has developed a unique improvisational style over a range of genres including jazz, folk, blues, acoustic rock, and popular music. From halls and clubs to the recording studio, Jackie’s warm and sweet, passionate and evocative violin playing leaves listeners profoundly affected and deeply moved. Jackie weaves a harmonic tapestry with her fellow musicians, adding depth, color, richness… and a little magic.
