Antje Duvekot is a winner of the Kerrville New Folk Competition’s Best New Folk Award, the Boston Music Award for Outstanding Folk Act, and a Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. She’s been invited to play the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Newport Folk Festival, and Mountain Stage. Internationally, she’s headlined the The Celtic Connections Festival in Scotland and the Tonder Festival in Denmark.
The Boston Globe praises her “songs that turn fear into resilience and isolation into community”. In 2008 Duvekot’s song “Merry Go Round” was featured in a national commercial that aired in a high profile spot during the Super Bowl.
Acousticmusic.com describes Antje Duvekot as having “one of the most distinctive voices among contemporary singer/songwriters. Her pitch perfect, sweet, delicate and poignant soprano is truly a gift.” Ellis Paul, who she often tours with Antje, refers to her backing vocals on a number of his songs as sprinkling “fairy dust” over them.
Antje Duvekot’s last CD, “New Siberia”, was released in 2012 and features supporting performances by superb musicians including folk luminary John Gorka. Antje, however, is just about to release a new studio CD, and if all goes well copies of it may be ready in time to be available at this concert.
