Local duo celebrate its new CD with a rescheduled date.
Update: This show has been canceled for this weekend. Adrienne Fawkes is very sick and they must reschedule. Local singer songwriters Adrienne Fawkes and Carrie Rowan are all about empowerment through music and uplifting others through song. They hope that translates in their brand new CD, Like the Moon. Stefilia's Stone celebrates its CD with a release show on Saturday, Dec. 1, at 7 p.m. at First Parish Church. (Note, this concert was originally scheduled for last month). Eric Kilburn, who recorded the album at Wellspring Sound, described the two as "powerful, passionate women singing about their lives in styles ranging from tender ballads to acoustic rock.

Everyone's been waiting. The new Friday night coffeehouse series has arrived.
Northborough Recreation is opening up its new venture called the Bearfoot Music Series, a series that features local and regional artists at a coffeehouse at the Senior Center. Stefelia's Stone opens the long-awaited series. Formed by well-known local singer-songwriters Carrie Rowan and Adrienne Fawkes, the duo has been playing music together for years, but sporadically. "We'd share a show here and there, but always pursuing our individual singer-songwriting careers," said Rowan. "Then last winter after a really great show where we had collaborated more on each other's songs, we received such a positive response, we thought, 'hey, we should be an official duo.'" Stefelia's Stone plays a "melodic, gorgeously harmonic mix of folk and pop …

Northborough's Carrie Rowan was determined to make a career out of music after she quit her corporate sales job. Now that she's succeeding, she's not looking back.
It was ten years ago when Carrie Rowan left behind everything that people normally strive for - career, reputation, vast income - for a chance to chase a dream. At her first job out of college, where she was in sales, Rowan took her strong business acumen and feverishly worked her way up the corporate ladder. It was something she loved succeeding at; rightfully so. But eventually, her commitment to the corporate world was a bold sign of a realization she’d come to - the work she was doing every day wasn’t very fulfilling. “I quickly realized that my job was not who I was,” Rowan said. Her biggest realization about how the corporate world did not reveal her true identity came from a person who's opinion she valued most. She remembers how…
