Off Square On Air is a series of two-hour concert/interview shows. We are excited to present the third in a series of what we hope will become a major real-time and online contribution to great music.
Each event in the series features a performer or a group of performers bringing us what we love — their music. But there’s more!
In our regular format, a host chats with performers between songs, drawing out their unique stories, thoughts, experiences, and tips. The live audience is invited to become co-creators, adding to the experience with their own questions, comments, and stories. Zoom attendees — you too are invited to join in via Chat!!
This edition of Off Square On Air is unique, though. The Small Potatoes performing duo, Jacquie Manning and Rich Prezioso, will not only bring us the music we all love, they will interview each other, drawing out stories and experiences

Off Square On Air Features Small Potatoes, February 24
Jacquie Manning and Rich Prezioso are Small Potatoes, a Chicago-based folk duo. They say “it has taken them years of careful indecision to develop a repertoire they describe as ‘Celtic to Cowboy’.”
Superb musicianship and showmanship, award-winning songwriting, and a strong sense of tradition have made them, as Dirty Linen Magazine once said, “one of the most polished, inventive, and entertaining shows on the circuit.”
They both sing, and they both play guitars and an array of other instruments. They even yodel. Twenty-eight years ago, they decided to hit the road.
They might not have had the best plan, but what they did have were great songs and musicianship, and the ability to put on a show. After twenty-eight years, a million and a half miles, and 3500 shows (not to mention five, check that…six Dodge Caravans…) they are listed as a “favorite act” by many coffeehouses, clubs, and house concerts across the U.S. They have made repeat appearances at major folk festivals, including the Kerrville Folk Festival, the Walnut Valley Festival, and the Philadelphia Folk Festival.
