Claudia Schmidt
https://www.claudiaschmidt.com

If it were the intention of the creator or creators of this universe to perfectly blend together the night sky with moon and stars, it might have been their intention as well to deliver Claudia Schmidt as their messenger of reminder.

To say that Schmidt is simply a performer with a talent to entertain would be a miscarriage of understatement. Schmidt takes her audiences into her world as easily as the child who discovers the endless universes that exist in a cardboard box.

From lying on sandy beaches under an endless barrage of northern lights, to the expected anguish and frustration of spinning tires on cars stuck deep in snow, from the age-old struggle of change between adolescence and adulthood to the observation of sheer idiocy, she leaves it to the imagination of her audience to conjure their own images of her storytelling and song. No interpretation of a Claudia Schmidt song or story is wrong-she invites audiences to tie their associations to her style.

Schmidt weaves her way through her concert in much the same manner as a jester. Interwoven anecdotes, revealing her past and present, bring people to expect a relationship between themselves and memories driven deep with the passage of time. The concert is an endless display of self-realization through humor and longing, leaving audience members yearning to become an integral part of her world.
Having performed on stages across the country, Schmidt has developed the ability to remain fresh. She enjoys her talent to entertain as much as the audience enjoys being entertained.

+ Cathy Kreger & Caroline Doctorow (duo)

"Long-time veterans of the acoustic music scene, Cathy Kreger and Caroline Doctorow join forces to perform a seasoned set of folk. Cathy's powerhouse blues-style vocals blends beautifully with Caroline's delicate, more sorrow-filled soprano. Both women are excellent guitar players and can really deliver any song they choose to perform..."

Cathy Kreger:
Armed with only an acoustic guitar and a voice as clear as cool water, Cathy Kreger delivers more pure music per minute than a bevy of roadhouse rockers. Her irresistible voice and guitar playing has earned her a place on stage opening for world-class acts, including: Bonnie Raitt, David Bromberg, The Band, Patty Larkin, Maria Muldaur, Taj Mahal and Aztec Two-Step and many others.
  Cathy has been touring for 30 years throughout the Northeast performing in venues such as IMAC, Katherine Hepburn Theater, Chapin Rainbow Stage, Silver Cloud Bluegrass Festival, To date, she has released 4 CDs her latest CD is entitled Pure Imagination. Most recently Cathy Kreger co-wrote the title track ELEMENTS of the documentary Impressarios and Visionaries with Film Producer Steven Taub.
   Her musical style is a uniquecombination of adult contemporary and old blues, with an alternative folk flair. Noel Paul Stookey (of Peter, Paul and Mary) once said "No doubt about it. She has a great voice and really has her act together." She has acquired a devoted fan base throughout the Northeast, especially in Connecticut, New York, and Long Island, where a thriving music scene exists.

In addition to eleven solo albums, she released the first retrospective of the work of '60s folk icons Richard and Mimi FariƱa titled Another Country which received critical acclaim. She has opened for The Band, Alison Krauss, and Tim O'Brien, among others. Her songs and her voice have been heard on soundtracks on the large and small screen.
