    Joy, sorrow, piano, voice, all blended in just the right mix. Great singing and song choices with a fantastic instrumentalist for support. Nice show.

    I’m so happy I got to hear Amy Ryan with accompanist Terry Lewis performing such a touching, entertaining, and well-executed show! Amy is one of Fresno’s premiere singer-actresses, and she’s woven together a collection of songs that help tell the journey of her life. This was Part 1– she continues the story in Part 2 tomorrow (3/14). And this evening she’ll perform her Irish songs.

    Amy is always a performer worth seeing and this show is no different. Great songs, lovely anecdotes, and a stellar voice strings along her story so well. Plus Terry Lewis on the keys is a bonus! Go see the show!

    Amelia is so talented and entertaining. Her show was absolutely delightful! I appreciate her sharing her story; the highs and the lows, all so authentic and real. She will take you away, keep you captivated with her story and her beautiful voice.
