Singer-songwriter and guitarist Cooie DeFrancesco performs tonight, Thursday, Sept. 12 at 7:30 p.m. at Tap 25 in Stowe. Cooie’s clear and vibrant vocal stylings bring lyrics to life, whether she’s singing traditional tunes, popular songs or originals. Her music encompasses a dollop of blues, a touch of jazz, a bit of folk and some old time rock ’n’ roll. In October, Cooie will record her first studio album, produced by Stowe’s jazz master George Petit. More information: cooiesings.com.
