Folk Singer-Songwriter Antje Duvekot Will Perform at Mountain City Traditional Arts

Frostburg State University’s Mountain City Traditional Arts will host award-winning folk singer-songwriter Antje Duvekot on Saturday, April 6, at 4 p.m. at 25 E. Main St. in Frostburg. The live entertainment is open to the public through general admission with a suggested donation of $15.

Duvekot is a German-American folk singer with extensive touring experience in the U.S. and Europe. She’s the winner of the Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, the prestigious Kerrville (Texas) Best New Folk Award and, in one of the nation’s top music markets, the Boston Music Award for Outstanding Folk Act – three of the top prizes in the singer-songwriter world.

Duvekot is a compelling live performer and has been invited to play some of the top festivals, including the Newport Folk Festival, Mountain Stage, and the Philadelphia and Kerrville festivals. Internationally, she’s headlined the Celtic Connections Festival in Scotland and the Tonder Festival in Denmark.

In December of 2007, Bank of America featured Duvekot’s song “Merry Go Round” in a national TV advertising campaign seen by millions, including a Super Bowl audience. Her fast-growing fan base, the viral spreading of her music and a track record of sold-out shows are a testament to her growing popularity.

“When I first heard Antje, I knew I was witnessing something very special,” said Neil Dorfsman, the producer of Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Sting. “She creates an entire, detailed world in verse and takes you there with beautiful and understated melody. Her songs are stunning paintings of color and shade and always generate the heat and light that real art should. In an unpoetic and in-your-face world, she is lyrical and subtle.”

MCTA is a program of FSU and a founding member of Maryland’s Folklife Network. It receives support from the Maryland Traditions Program of the State Arts Council.
