Biographical Notes

Schooner Fare was formed in 1975 when Tom Rowe, Steve Romanoff, and Chuck Romanoff were sitting around in Tom's camper singing an old folk song (Fiddler's Green) while waiting to perform with their six-piece folk-rock group, Devonsquare. The three enjoyed singing the folk song to such an extent, they began contemplating doing this for a living. Six months later, they had a Sunday booking in Portland for $150 USD. They then got a steady job (every Sunday night) at a place in Portland called The Holy Mackerel. Schooner Fare has performed at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City, John F Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington DC, Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts in Northern Virginia, The Town Hall on Broadway NYC, and Boston Symphony Hall with The Boston Pops Orchestra. They have been featured on CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Kuralt, National Public Radio Morning Edition and Weekend Edition with Scott Simon. Tom Rowe died of cancer in 2004. Chuck and Steve, now a duet, continue to write, perform, and record as Schooner Fare.
