The four-day festival August 23-26, 2018, will feature three shows of each musical.

This original musical takes you to an Amtrak train station where, while waiting out a storm, a disheveled Traveler shares the story of his three-year journey all across America with Miss Isabella Rainsong – a captivatingly beautiful black guitar. Written and performed by Ross Martin of Fulton, MD.
Miss Isabella Rainsong and Her Traveling Companion had its world premiere on January 20th, 2018 in Columbia Maryland.
Doors will open 30 minutes before each show.
The total run time for the show is approximately one hour.
Each performance is followed by a Q&A session with the actors, directors, writers and composers of the work.
About the Creator
Ross Martin (Book, Lyrics, & Music) started singing about the same time he started talking and added the guitar when it seemed his only option for impressing girls. He grew up doing community and school theater and choirs. When he realized that he cared more about the parody of The Music Man he wrote for his med school talent show than passing his medical boards, he knew something had to give. After delivering babies for a few years, he flipped his career to consulting in health IT to make more room for writing, eventually penning five screenplays and fourish musicals (depending on how you count). He briefly delivered babies, but now makes his living as an independent consultant in medical informatics (technology in healthcare) along with his wife as the dynamic duo behind 360 Degree Insights LLC. He also claims to be the World's Leading Medical Informatimusicologist as President and Founder of The American College of Medical Informatimusicology (ACMImimi).
