- Music by The Rossonians Rhode Island’s own Mary Ann Rossoni has been carrying on the fine folk tradition of her own state for many years now. Born and raised in Johnston, and a Providence resident since her college days at RISD, Mary Ann began as a naïve upstart with plenty of ambition and is now, by all counts, a fast-maturing and creative artist with a unique sound and a lot on her mind.
