New music from a fearless phenomenon in Boston-area folk
Folk institution Ellis Paul has called Antje Duvekot (AHNT-yuh DOO-va-kott) "the next great American folk singer-songwriter. " Not enough of a recommendation? Legendary rock critic Dave Marsh calls Antje a "terrific writer and singer, with the instincts to do things right, over and over and over." Born in Germany, Antje came to the U.S. as a teen. Following the path of Natalie Merchant, Dar Williams, and Patty Griffin, she's still something of an outsider, with a fresh poetic palette. Antje's last album, "The Near Demise of the High Wire Dancer," was voted the best release of the year by the listeners of the influential Boston radio station WUMB, and she comes to Michigan with a new album, "New Siberia."
