Catie Curtis is a veteran on the singer/songwriter folk scene, crisscrossing the US for 20 years – and counting – performing shows, recording and releasing 13 CDs, with devoted fans following her every move. She’s performed at the White House several times, at two Presidential Inaugural Balls, with Lilith Fair, and at Carnegie Hall. The winner of more than her share of Boston Music Awards, she also took the Grand Prize in the 2006 International Songwriting Competition (out of 15,000 entries). Catie recorded a duet with Kris Kristofferson for his CD “The Austin Sessions” and there’s a good chance you’ve heard a song of hers in a movie or on a TV show. The New Yorker called Catie a “folk-rock goddess.” Catie’s 13th album, Flying Dream (2014), continues her songwriting signature of being deep and soulful, telling honest and universal truths of the experience of living. Flying Dream is a start-to-finish collaboration with Sugarland co-founder and modern folk songwriting luminary Kristen Hall.

Any fool can write a love-gone wrong song; it takes a real genius to write a love-gone-right one. No urban songwriter does that better than Curtis. – Scott Alarik, for the Boston Globe
Based out of Duluth, MN, singer-songwriter Rachael Kilgour has built a devoted following over the last ten years, captivating audiences with a balance of provocative, topical lyrics, passionate musical delivery, and a charmingly witty stage presence.
Kilgour began writing and performing her own songs in 2005. She was invited to join none other than Catie Curtis on a tour of the Midwest as an opener and backup musician in 2006 and again the following year. Her original music was received well enough that she decided to break from the pursuit of a Music Education degree in order to focus on a career as a performer. Rachael was named the grand prize winner of the 2015 NewSong Contest, culminating in a performance at Lincoln Center.
