Born in Heidelberg, Germany, but living in the United States since she was 13,
Antje Duvekot is one
of the brightest singer-songwriters to rise out of Boston's acoustic music
scene. She has won the triple crown of songwriting awards: Grand Prize in the
John Lennon Songwriting Competition (2000), the prestigious Kerrville Festival
Best New Folk Award (2006), and a Boston Music Award for Outstanding Folk Act
(2006). Her song Merry Go Round was featured in a national TV advertising
campaign for Bank of America in 2007 and was played during the Super Bowl. Dave
Marsh of Rolling Stone Magazine said of her debut CD, Big Dream Boulevard,
"This is a brilliant, brilliant album. I have had this reaction once
in the last 10 years and that was the first time I heard Patty Griffin."
Her CD "The Near Demise of the High Wire Dancer" was voted WUMB's
#1 album of 2009. Singer songwriter Ellis Paul says "Antje is the rare
artist that can write about the social and the personal in the same breath. She
is as understated as she is wise and her songs go down mentally as well as
soulfully. Her voice has a sound of innocence and naivety which makes razor sharp
insights into the human condition."

Fox Run Studios.
One part wise old woman and one part goofy little kid, singer-songwriter Jenna Lindbo is going to find a way
to your heart. It’s only a matter of time. An Oregon native, Jenna travels the country, inspiring audiences
from Asheville to Anchorage with her rootsy folk songs and infectious joy. Along the way she keeps meeting folks
who love to hear her music, soak up the effervescent energy of her shows, and get smacked upside the heart.
Buoyed by the experience, exposure, and inspiration from touring extensively with Catie Curtis, Jenna's solo
career is taking off. She's currently celebrating the release of her new CD, Jasmine Parade (2012), produced
by Lorne Entress. With lush arrangements and simply adorned songs, this album beautifully captures Jenna's
storytelling and reflects a deepening in her art as well as a rich new chapter unfolding. The songs on Jasmine
Parade as well as her first release, Strings & Spokes (2010) bring joyful attention to the sweetness and sorrow
of life worth living. Jasmine Parade features appearances by Catie Curtis, Kai Welch (Abigail Washburn), Edie
Carey, and Peter Mulvey.
