Michael Braunfeld is, first and foremost, a storyteller.  His songs capture the everyday triumphs and struggles of ordinary people.  His characters – though trapped in the particular circumstances of their own lives – appeal to a universal audience.  Michael was welcomed into the Writers’ Night Family at The Bluebird Cafe in 2014 and was named a finalist in the Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk Competition in both 2016 and 2018.  From sold out listening rooms to festivals, Michael is delighting old fans and winning over new audiences at every stop.  Whether addressing topical issues or sharing personal stories that often leave his audiences feeling that he has somehow, in some way, invaded their privacy, Michael’s performances combine a powerful guitar style with a seemingly endless supply of urgency. And he has a pretty sneaky sense of humor too.

Kirsten Maxwell is a New York raised singer/songwriter, now based out of Nashville.  She has toured extensively over the past 4 years, and shared stages with such musical greats as Melissa Etheridge, Ferron, and Karla Bonoff.  Most recently, Maxwell performed a solo show at The Cutting Room in NYC, accompanied by Paul Shaffer.  In a review of her latest self-titled EP, John Apice of No Depression writes, “Her voice alone wraps itself around your ears…this is an artist still in the making and not just a singer.”.  Learn more about her at http://www.kirstenmaxwell.com.
