No Fuss and Feathers distills the very best of four talented musicians and creates an entirely original, polished, engaging entity... beautiful singing, gorgeous harmonies, sophisticated instrumentation, and infectious humor. I loved every minute. ” - Barbara Shiller, President, CT Folk

So who ARE these people?

NO FUSS AND FEATHERS is the “heck-of-a-good-time” collaboration hatched by CAROLANN SOLEBELLO, KARYN OLIVER, CATHERINE MILES, and JAY MAFALE. Shaken or stirred, NFF serves up a dynamic, cohesive cocktail of delicious harmonies, infectious rhythm, and spontaneous hilarity — with award-winning songwriting always at center stage. Individually, the four are nationally touring performers who have charted at the top of Folk and Americana radio and appeared at some of the nation’s most respected festivals. Collectively, they are an incorrigible bunch of musical co-conspirators bent on giving their audience an unforgettable show. Laughter and showmanship, along with warm friendship and camaraderie, make the audience part of the performance, so each NFF show is a unique and unforgettable concert experience.

NO FUSS AND FEATHERS' first CD, Traveling Circus, was released in 2016.
