Susan Kane’s sweet and sharp Americana is alchemy of stuff dug from the dirt, born from books, gleaned from the air, yesterday’s news and tomorrow’s dreams. She hooks words onto melodies to create songs she hopes you will remember. www.susankane.com

Singer-songwriter Karen Hudson, of the Karen Hudson River Trio has been compared to Rosanne Cash by The Village Voice and to early Linda Ronstadt by 3rd Coast Music Magazine in Austin, Texas. She has opened for Madeliene Peyroux, Walter Salas Humara and Pete Seeger. This is Americana for people who keep The Byrds and The Beatles next to Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline.“She’s an elegant tunesmith, evocative lyricist . . . a subtly nuanced singer.” — New York Music Daily www.karenhudson.com
