Abigail Alfano doesn't remember a time without music.
As a child she would sit with her mother as she played guitar and sang,
learning harmonies and basic guitar chords for the duets they would sing
together. At family gatherings there was always an abundance of food and
singing. Music was a part of their lives and brought them joy.
In high school, Abigail was very active in the choir and participated in musicals, and also performed with a church group called New Revelation. Too timid for solos, she preferred to sing harmonies instead of lead.
In 1983 she married and started a family. Singing took a back seat to raising her three children, but she enjoyed playing and singing for her kids as her mother had done for her.
At a family reunion in July 2002, in the midst of fun, food, and music, she saw her cousin Meg who encouraged her to attend open mic night at Evangeline's Coffee House in Slidell, LA. Abigail and her brother George performed there, stunning the audience with her soulful, honest vocals.
Shortly thereafter, she teamed up with Jude LeBlanc, who performed locally at coffee houses, parties, and other gigs. The two practiced diligently and now dazzle audiences with their tight harmonies and excellent selection of songs which range from traditional country, vintage rock, folk and pop, each accompanied by Jude's smooth fingerpicking and sometimes Abby's rhythm guitar. They perform weekly at many local coffee shops and concerts.
When not pursuing her love of music, Abigail works as a Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant. She also makes time to teach group fitness classes and does some personal training as well. Her hobbies include photography, health & fitness, cruising flea markets, performing in her hometown community theatre and enjoying the great outdoors.
