5:30 – 6:00 Sophie Speca & Maggie Callan
Sophie and Maggie are two East Greenwich High School juniors. They have been friends for many years, but only started playing music together earlier this year. Sophie has been playing guitar since she was eight, and Maggie’s first vocal performance was in her second grade talent show. Their talent show act together in March was their first performance and the video of that performance qualified them for the Race to the Stage. Since then, they have performed at many Main Street Strolls and the Make Music RI festival. Their main focus is acoustic covers but they share a vast music taste across many genres.
