Claudia Russell is a veteran of California’s Americana Music scene who has won songwriting honors from Boston to Austin. Known for her nimble, expressive voice and tightly knit songs, Russell brings grace and spunk to an eclectic array of music. Two thousand miles inland from Russell’s Bay Area home, Katie Dahl has gained a reputation as one of the Midwest’s best young songwriters, writing keenly literate songs planted deep in the ground of her Wisconsin home. Her velvety alto carries a rich sense of depth and expression. Fold in Dahl’s husband Rich Higdon on bass and percussion and Russell’s husband Bruce Kaplan (on mandolin and guitar), and you have a musical outfit adept in creating music that is at once reflective, quirky, and poignant—and an onstage dynamic that is genuinely warm and lively.
