Marc Douglas Berardo
Singer-songwriter, performer and keen observer, Marc Douglas Berardo’s songs are sharply drawn and cast a net on unusual and beguiling characters and places that bring to mind James Taylor, Jimmy Buffett, Guy Clark, and Steely Dan with a touch of Mark Twain or Hunter S. Thompson. His songs have been recognized at many prestigious national festivals and events such as The South Florida Folk Festival, The Wildflower Art and Music Festival, and the legendary Kerrville Folk Festival. He has opened for or shared the stage with The Doobie Brothers, Little Feat, John Hiatt, Martin Sexton, Eric Taylor, Kevin Welch, Kim Richey, Will Kimbrough, and David Olney among others.
Berardo has performed at many renowned venues all over including, The Town Crier,(NY), Club Passim (MA) Narrows Center for The Arts (MA), In the Round at The Bluebird Cafe (TN), Freight and Salvage (CA), The Emelin Theater (NY), and Caffe Lena (NY), Ramshead OnStage (MD), among others.
Berardo’s interview and live performance featured on the Sirius/ XM Satellite Radio show The Village was voted one of the best of the year by listeners. “Berardo takes you to a place within yourself to make changes you want to see in the world.” — Mary Jane Twohy, Sirius XM. No Depression Magazine called his last CD Whalebone: “sincere, fluid, charming and above all gripping.”
