A chance encounter as guest artists at The Colonial Theatre brought them together in 2013.  A collaboration soon followed and Samantha Talora & Ron Ramsay, inspired by their shared love of decades of Broadway music, the Great American Songbook, classic standards and contemporary & popular music, have been weaving harmonies ever since. With such performances as "Our Time", "Cheek to Chic" and "Affairs of the Heart" they have been met with sell-out crowds and rave reviews at Whitney Center for the Arts, Ventfort Hall, Mr. Finn's Cabaret and countless private and charitable events. Their eclectic music series, spanning a wide array of genres, has delighted audiences with special programs such as "A Sondheim Trilogy," "A Night at the Oscars" and "The Chairman"- a tribute to Frank Sinatra in 2015 marking his centennial birthday celebration. They have spend the past 3 consecutive summers "riding the rails" with the Berkshire Scenic Railway Museum for the Cabaret Train series and added to the line-up in 2018 with Mistletoe & Martinis, Holiday Cabaret Trains.  These along with their popular holiday programs for Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Christmas (and more), have quickly become the ideal destination for a romantic date night, or a fun night with family and friends.  The duo's powerfully versatile vocals along with Ramsay’s depth and experience as a veteran of the New York City night club scene infuse their performances with musical selections that allow us to rise and fall with every emotional turn they take. With stellar musicianship, passionate performances, and witty storytelling, this pair will make you laugh and cry and always leave you wanting more!
