Maeri Ferguson , Staff Reviewer

Maeri Ferguson has music in her blood. She grew up twenty minutes from Fort Adams, attending her first Newport Folk Fest before she could even walk, and running through the tents of the Rhythm and Roots Fest at Ninigret in her cowboy boots once she could. Most people call her Mae, thanks to her dad’s love of the Kershaw Brothers song “Hey Mae”. From the time she was 12, her parents have been hosting monthly house concerts that turn her living room into Rhode Island’s premiere destination for Americana, roots music and rock n’ roll, and exposing her to some of the greatest singer-songwriters in the music industry. She’s been listening to her dad’s radio show, the Boudin Barndance, since before she can remember, and still tunes in on Thursday nights from the apartment in Brooklyn where she now lives. She works in public relations, and has been writing about music and reviewing live shows for more than five years, currently serving as a staff writer for No Depression and Glide Magazine. You can find her on Instagram @monster_mama and on Twitter @maeriferguson.
