Singer-songwriter Namoli Brennet performs intimate folk concert at
Congregational Church in Cornwall, CT

Cornwall, CT (September 2013)—Dubbed “among the best folk-rock artists in the
country," by the Tucson Weekly, singer-songwriter and Connecticut native Namoli
Brennet is known for the honesty and intensity of her live shows, as well as her quirky
and comedic performance patter. A trans woman who was named one of the inaugural
Trans 100 on the first ever list highlighting accomplished members of the transgender
community across the United States, Brennet will perform a live concert of her soulful,
witty songs on Saturday, October 19, 2013, at 7 pm at the United Church of Christ in
Cornwall, Connecticut.

Described by The Rainbow Times as “a deft acoustic player” with “smoky vocals,”
Brennet has been touring and performing since 2002 when she hit the road with her first
CD. Now, 1000-plus shows and 200,000 miles later, her gritty, honest folk has attracted
a large and extremely loyal fan base. Her performance at United Church of Christ will
include a reception with wine and bites after the concert, during which CDs and artwork
by the artist will be for sale. The concert is free with a suggested donation of $10.
Brennet has self-released 10 CDs, including her latest, "Live," which was recorded over
the course of 6 months and 14,000 miles. Her poignant, introspective, and sometimes
hard-hitting music has won praise and accolades from critics and fans alike, and was
described as "gorgeous and introspective" by Zocalo magazine. She has been
nominated for numerous OUTmusic awards, and her music is featured in the Emmy
Award nominated film "Out In The Silence," which details the struggle of a gay teen
growing up in rural Pennsylvania. Brennet spends eight to nine months a year touring
and performing.

Namoli Brennet: In the Flesh is hosted by The Rainbow Times CT and United Church of
Christ in Cornwall Congregational on Saturday, October 19, 2013 at 7:00 pm, with a $10
suggested donation at the door. United Church of Christ is located at 8 Bolton Hill Road

This event is also a fundraiser for the Jim Collins Foundation, which raises money to fund gender-confirming surgeries for those who need surgery to live a healthy life, but have no ability to pay for it themselves.
