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. Two of her albums found her working with Richard Shindell as producer, as well as other “folk royalty” such as John Gorka, Lucy Kaplancky and Mark Erelli.
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.
Opening for Antje will be Eva Gertz. Eva is an eclectic artist of many mediums, born and raised in Melrose, MA where she started piano lessons at a young age. After attending Berklee College of Music (class of 2015), she spent six years developing her multi-faceted music career in NYC. This led her to arrange for Broadway and assist top-rank composers, perform as a dueling pianist on cruise ships, and self produce her original singer-songwriter releases along with ultra-creative music videos which share an uplifting message of self-love.
She currently lives in Somerville and teaches arranging at Berklee among many other musical jobs and projects. Her appreciation for the local arts community that has supported her from the beginning continues to grow immensely. You can learn more about her at her website https://www.evagertz.com/
