at the 1867 Sanctuary at Ewing
Preservation New Jersey is pleased to welcome singer-songwriter Jason Ager back to the beautiful setting and acoustics of the historic landmark 1867 Sanctuary at Ewing! He will be accompanied by folk singer Katherine Rondeau.
Jason Ager is a blues-rock artist with hip-hop and R & B influences. Jason’s self-taught guitar style is distinguished by stylized palm muting and percussive striking. He has been playing original music since picking up the guitar, and has grown a loyal following in his hometown Philadelphia music scene. With stints in Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, Jason is a staple in clubs from New York to Virginia. He leads a trio that moves audiences to the dance floor, and also performs upbeat acoustic music that tests the boundaries of the traditional singer-songwriter. Jonathan Pitts of The Baltimore Sun said, Music turns Ager into a showman — a scratchy-voiced storyteller with a twinkle in his eye.

A two-time Philadelphia Folk Festival performer (2015 & 2016), Katherine Rondeau's musical path builds on a broad range of traditional and modern folk influences – from Odetta to Lucinda Williams.
How to describe Katherine's music? Rootsy folk? Soulful Americana? Katherine's rich, soulful voice is unmistakable - full of passion and strength. Her story songs take on a myriad of themes, from love lost and love preserved to robust political anthems. As both a headliner and performer sharing the stage with others like Garnet Rogers, Tracy Grammer, Mustard’s Retreat, and Lizanne Knott, Katherine’s shows lead listeners through a gamut of experiences and emotions. Whether she’s expressing the regret of love revisited in Again, invoking a mournful Appalachian ballad in Broken Bird, or rousing the crowd with a new-school folkie protest song like Raise Up Your Hand, Katherine’s shows linger on audiences’ minds long after the stage lights have dimmed. The Princeton Folk Song Society may have said it best: Don't miss Katherine Rondeau's silky voice and beautiful playing. Be warned: she will mesmerize you!
