Friday, August 16, 8 PM: Folksinger Laura Kemp and Moody Little Sister.
A fixture on the music scene since moving to Oregon in 1990, Laura Kemp has gained a reputation as one of the finest performers on the west coast. Over the past 25 years she has produced 7 studio and two live CD’s, and has won the Eugene Weekly’s annual poll for Best Singer-Songwriter too many times to keep track of. When she is not focused on her music, she is an avid gardener, backpacker, and is deeply committed to her yoga practice.
Modern-folk musical duo, Moody Little Sister has met and magnetized their audience’s imaginations since their debut album "Wild Places" appeared in 2015.
Their writing has been described as “masterly” (Oregon Music News) and “earthy and approachable” (Bitch). Moody Little Sister has built a loyal community around their music the old-old-old fashioned way: one listening room, house concert, front porch, and campfire at a time. Having called Alaska, Oregon, and New Mexico “home” over the past 7 years, Moody Little Sister has headlined the living rooms and back yards of fans across the land that host them for House Concerts. They have also appeared at numerous large venues in the Pacific Northwest such as: The Sisters Folk Festival, The Wildwood Festival, The Britt Festival, The Bite of Seattle, and opening for the Indigo Girls to name a few.
