The Julie Thompson Duo
Friday, July 5 at 4 p.m.
Julie Thompson has opened for The Kingston Trio. She has sung in the backup chorus for the rock group Foreigner. She has toured for ten years with the New England-based band, Julie & Brownie, and appeared in TJ Booker’s music video for “Wine Into Water.” Besides music publishing, she is also an internationally published author and narrator of several children’s books.
Having studied voice in high school and college in her native state of Maine, Julie's classical training is the foundation for her folk and jazz work. Ten years on the road with Brownie Macintosh (founder of Julie & Brownie) brought her to nearly every library, recreation department, school, festival and fair in New England and other parts of the East Coast. Currently residing and performing in Milwaukee, she enjoys frequent sojourns to New England and Florida for special events.
Julie sings in various groups and with different styles: jazz (Julie Thompson's High Standards), Motown trio (Night & Day with Bobby Jiles), folk trio (Dangerous Folk) and blues band (Southend Blues Band).
