Antje Duvekot has solidified her reputation as one of America’s top singer songwriters. Wildly popular in the Boston area, this stunning vocalist and guitarist has won three of the country’s top songwriting awards — the Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, the prestigious Kerrville (TX) Best New Folk Award and the Boston Music Award for Outstanding Folk Act. She has crisscrossed the US and Europe several times. She has been invited to play some of the top festivals including The Newport Folk Festival, Mountain Stage, and the Philadelphia Folk Festival. Internationally, she’s headlined the The Celtic Connections Festival in Scotland and the Tonder Festival in Denmark. “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”.
