Mad Agnes plays at Krypto April 7

April breezes in with a performance by Mad Agnes at 7:30 p.m., Friday, April 7, at Krypto Music Lounge, 308 W. State St., hosted by Charlotte’s Web.

This fast folk trio promises “A refreshing adventure for those who enjoy well-sung and well-written acoustic music,” said Rich Warren of Sing Out! magazine. The trio is composed of Margo Hennebach, Adrienne Jones and Mark Saunders. “Mad Agnes isn’t really mad at all,” says Pete Fornatale (of WFUV in New York), unless mad also means smart, warm, insightful and humorous. Using rich, heart-rending three-part harmonies, seasoned musicianship and clever songwriting, the genre-bending Mad Agnes delights, incites and heals.

This East Coast musical group’s bond stretches across three bands, two solo careers, one and half decades and a vast repertoire encompassing eight original releases.
