The Secret Sauce
- Folk Rock
Janet Feld, Esther Friedman and Jackie Damsky have joined forces as The Secret
Sauce, performing tasty originals and choice covers, with lots of sweet 3-part
harmony, plus guitar, mandolin, and violin. They came together over a love of
each other’s songs, great friendship, and fun and that’s how the Secret Sauce rolls!

Esther Friedman is a Boston-based acoustic singer & songwriter.

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.

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.
