Miss Isabella Rainsong and Her Traveling Companion will take you on an unforgettable journey
You will board this two-act, original acoustic musical in an Anniston, Alabama Amtrak train station where you will wait out a storm while a wayward 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: A One-Guitar Show had its world premiere on January 20th, 2018 in Columbia, Maryland. It was selected for the Florida Festival of New Musicals, where it was presented in a one-act version August 23-25, 2018. This will be the 19th staging of the show. There are some exciting additions to this performance, including some new audio backing tracks and some technical wizardry that Ross has designed to run the entire show -- including audio and lighting cues -- from the stage using an Arduino micropocessor built into his guitar! See the Miss Rainsong blog for more details.
This is a house concert -- it's the full two-act show, but in the private home of Casey and Remy Gomes. Admission is free, but reservations are required and donations will be accepted at the end of the show. Bring some cash to donate ($20 suggested) and purchase merchandise. Also bring a dish to share and the adult beverage of your choice. The potluck will start at 6pm and the show will depart the station promptly at 7pm. The total run time for the show is approximately two hours, not including the 15-minute intermission and any lengthy standing ovations.
If you've not attended one before, house concerts are perhaps the best possible way to experience live music. Intimate and up close, you will enjoy socializing with old friends and ones you are meeting for the first time before sharing a unique and magical musical experience. Like most house concerts, the address and parking information will be shared with you a day or two prior to the show.
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) as President of 360 Degree Insights LLC. He is devoting a larger share of his time to creative pursuits like Miss Rainsong. He also claims to be the World's Leading Medical Informatimusicologist as President and Founder of The American College of Medical Informatimusicology (ACMImimi).
