New NAME still Ms. Carrie - May 16, 2013


You will notice I have changed the name of the page from Carrie Rowan to Stefilia's Little Stones.  Don't worry, I will still perform my various Ms. CARRIE concerts, however when Ms. Adrienne and I perform together we will be known as "Stefilia's little Stones".  Why the change?  We are really taking off with our big girl music as "Stefilia's Stone" and we wanted a name that showed a connection between our kids music and our big girl music!  Right now our big girl music is being played on radio stations in Japan, The Netherlands, Italy and Australia!  PRETTY COOL!!! What do you think about the name change?  We'd like to know!  Write us a note in our guestbook!  Have a sun shiny day all!!!  Thanks for visiting!! xoMs. Carrie
