Julie Harris

Julie Harris began her professional singing career in her hometown, Kansas City, Missouri.  In 2008 she joined forces with guitarist/bassist Stephen Roane to form the Harris/Roane Duo, which has performed across the state of Connecticut from Litchfield to Norwalk, as well as Providence, RI.  In 2010, pianist David Childs became part of The Julie Harris Trio, originating two cabaret performances:  "An Evening With Cole Porter" and "The Brothers Gershwin."

The Duo has produced a CD:  "I Turn a Corner" and the Trio:  "Julie Sings Julie," featuring original songs written by Ms. Harris, who not only writes songs, but who has published two novels and whose poetry and essays  have appeared in national publications.

In addition to the Porter and Gershwin programs, the Duo and Trio perform "Isn't It Romantic?", a Valentine's Day Cabaret; "Witchcraft," a program for fall; Salute to Spring, featuring the loveliest songs written about the season; Songs for a Summer Night, a program they have performed on the patio of the Guilford Free Library for the last seven years and, their latest project,  "On the Sunny Side of the Street...the Songs of Jimmy McHugh."  They also love to perform their favorite tunes from The Great American Songbook and are in the beginning stages of a Tribute to Duke Ellington.

In a glowing review, the Assistant Director of the Guilford Free Library wrote:  "They are talented, consummate professionals who always draw a large and delighted audience."
