“Laura Nyro was the first person, songwriting-wise, where there were no rules. She influenced more songwriters that came out—and successful songwriters—than probably anyone who came before her.”
— Elton John
Stoned Soul Picnic is a concert-style celebration of the art and soul of the late, great singer-songwriter, and 2012 Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame honoree, Laura Nyro. Lead vocalist Diane Garisto toured and recorded with Ms. Nyro in the mid-90's as a member of her celebrated Harmony Group. Diane and friends have put together a live show dedicated to the memory of this musical icon. Along with some of New York City's best players and singers, Stoned Soul Picnic features faithful arrangements from all of Nyro's most popular recordings such as Eli and the 13th Confession, New York Tendaberry, Christmas and the Beads of Sweat, and Gonna Take a Miracle. Stoned Soul Picnic has already sold out venues, large and small, including the popular City Winery NYC, Highline Ballroom, and Celtic Connections Music Festival in Glasgow, Scotland, where they were honored to have Shawn Colvin as their special guest. We hope you'll take a tour of the site and enjoy the offerings of music, videos, photos, and writings that are dedicated to our Mother Spiritual, Laura Nyro. And please sign up for our mailing list if you want more information about upcoming Stoned Soul Picnic shows. Thank you.
