    Connecticut native Stan Sullivan earned his BA in Modern Languages from CCSU in 1970. He is a self-described, "singer-songwriter guitar instrumentalist-composer and folk and blues performer." He modestly explains that although he wrote his first song at the age of 17, it was not until many years later that the quality of his songwriting and performing came together. And that it did!

    Stan Sullivan has played solo in CT, NY, and MA at colleges, libraries, festivals, clubs, coffeehouses, special events and more. He has opened and done sets with over 100 internationally touring artists, including Muriel Anderson, Janis Ian, Dave Van Ronk, John Hartford, and Happy Traum. He has released two lyrical albums, titled, The Right Road, and Do You Like the Rain? featuring 24 original songs and instrumentals. He also has two compilations of recording appearances on Folk Next Door and Folk Next Door V-Cicada; both were recorded by Ed McKeon for WWUH 91.3 FM Radio.

    Besides performing, Stan Sullivan has won numerous awards in songwriting and guitar contests that span various categories such as Love, Religion/Spirit, Instrumental, Humorous, Political, and Modern Ballad. Contests range from Arizona's Southwest Regional Fingerstyle, to New Hampshire's Folk Guitar & Fiddle, to the Walnut Valley Songwriting Showcase in Kansas, and more.
