ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Abigail Stauffer - The folk siren turns the language of acoustic, pop, and neo-soul music into an irresistible invitation to heal and be healed. Every song is a captivating showcase of confidence and vulnerability, crafting a balance of pain, hope, and joy.

Her music and live performances evoke so much emotion, it's hard to believe each song isn't specifically about you. Finally, an artist who writes about the things that really matter; Abigail will warm your heart and serenade your soul.

Kate Peterson - Since 2005, this Michigan-based singer songwriter has traveled across this country and Europe, opened for Ani Difranco, and graced hundreds of stages with her folk duo, Nervous but Excited. Now Kate is reinventing herself and stepping out solo.

The roots of her music are still planted firmly in the Pleasantly Aggressive Folk sound that never fails long time fans. The cool rasp of Kate's voice can fill up a room and tug on your heart at the same time. Of her vocals, The Northern Express explains “…you could almost swear you hear the same grainy whispers as Ray LaMontagne.” She approaches her sound with sailing melodies, a dash of percussion and a passion so genuine that it has worn through the wood of her guitar. New listeners to her performance should expect songs and stories of travels and trials that connect us all. The raw nature of her writing can leave you feeling a little exposed, but given her genuine yet dry wit, you will surely be tempered by a laugh or two.
