Welcome back one of Boston's top singer songwriters, Antje Duvekot - bringing her provocative, thoughtful lyrics and melodies to the Simple Gifts' stage. This will be Antje's second appearance at Simple Gifts and we are thrilled to have her back in Nashua, NH. Her beautiful ballads and exquisite presence make her one of Folk Music's most sought after performers. Don't miss this visit!
We share this sentiment: "What a blessing to have worked with someone as talented as Antje. With a voice like hers, and songs as good as these, a producer (especially a first-time producer!) just tries to get out of the way, to do no harm, and to let the artist speak for herself." - Richard Shindell
Antje has extensive touring experience, criss-crossing the US and Europe many times. Her compelling live performance is the reason she has been invited to play some of the top festivals including The Newport Folk Festival.
Her songwriting awards include the Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, the prestigious Kerrville (TX) "Best New Folk Award" and she won the Boston Music Award for "Outstanding Folk Act", three of the top prizes in the singer songwriter world.
"When I first heard Antje I knew I was witnessing something very special. She creates an entire, detailed world in verse, and takes you there with beautiful and understated melody. Her songs are stunning paintings of color and shade and always generate the heat and light that real art should. In an unpoetic and 'in your face' world, she is lyrical and subtle." Neil Dorfsman, producer of Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Sting.
Opening for Antje we present Jim Trick.
Whether through his music or his words, Jim Trick brings a real life perspective, with an engaging and entertaining presence to the room. Joyful, sincere, and magnetic are just a few of the words to describe Jim. We think a perfect pairing to open for Antje.
