Antje Duvekot -- RESCHEDULED FOR JANUARY 8, 2021
Featured Charity: Belmont Food Collaborative
Due to the current state of affairs, First Church Belmont is closed for the unforeseeable future. That means we've had to reschedule some concerts. Please reach out to us if you would like a refund for tickets or if you'd like to use your seats for the rescheduled date. Thanks.
"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.” – The Boston Globe
Antje has won some of the top songwriting awards including the Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, the prestigious, Kerrville (TX) "Best New Folk Award" and in one of the nation's top music markets, she won the Boston Music Award for "Outstanding Folk Act", three of the top prizes in the singer songwriter world.
Antje has extensive touring experience, criss-crossing the US and Europe many times. She is a compelling live performer and has been invited to play some of the top festivals including The Newport Folk Festival as well as the Mountain Stage, Philadelphia and Kerrville Festivals. Internationally, she's headlined the The Celtic Connections Festival in Scotland and the Tonder Festival in Denmark.
We are thrilled to have her close out our 35th season!
