For many reading this, the award-winning Antje Duvekot needs no introduction. For those who have not had the pleasure of hearing her, you are in for a treat. After hosting her in New Mexico in our previous Las Alturas House Concerts series, it's a thrill to be able to share her music with Chicago. Her last show in Chicagoland was a sell-out at SPACE. This time we're sharing her with WFMT-FM Folkstage, where you can hear her live Saturday evening, September 22 at 8 p.m. CDT. Don't wait until then to RSVP - this show will sell out.
Antje won the prestigious, Kerrville "New Folk" Award and went on to win the Boston Music Award for "Outstanding Folk Act", two of the top prizes in the singer songwriter world. Antje's first album was voted "#1 Folk Release of 2006" by the Boston Globe and was named to the "Top10 Releases of the Year" by NPR's Folk Alley. She's released 3 more albums since then, each a gem musicially and sonically. Her live performances are emotional and vulnerable mixed with her quieet, slightly dry sense of humor.
Antje believes in the redemptive power of the shared secret; and is utterly unafraid to mine the darkest corners of her life for songs that turn fear into resilience and isolation into community.
"Antje's songs are stunning paintings of color and shade; and always generate the heat and light that real art should." - Neil Dorfsman, Producer of Dylan, Springsteen and Sting
"Duvekot has gotten hotter, faster than any local songwriter in recent memory. Her songs feel at once fresh faced and firmly rooted, driven by the whispery sensuality of her voice. She believes in the redemptive power of the shared secret; and is utterly unafraid to mine the darkest corners of her life for songs that turn fear into resilience and isolation into community." - The Boston Globe
"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." - former Rolling Stone music editor Dave Marsh
