At 7:30 p.m. Saturday, 6 On The Square will present two young performers, Antje Duvekot and Seth Glier. Both have won numerous awards and acclaim independently.
Duvekot, originally from Heidelberg, Germany, has triumphed over a difficult past moving to the U.S. at the age of 13. Duvekot has won the John Lennon Songwriting Competition and the best new folk award at the Kerrville Festival as well as the Boston Music award for “outstanding folk artist”.
Her third and newest studio album, “New Siberia” has been called a masterpiece of the modern folk genre.
Despite his relatively young age of 23, Massachusetts based singer/songwriter/pianist/guitarist, Glier is a seasoned troubadour.
Averaging more than 250 live performances annually, he has gone from opening act to headlining his own shows and playing major folk festivals. He has been a national spokesperson for the Autism Speaks, an advocate for Musicians On Call, and had a ROCK THE VOTE Road Trip 2012. Also in 2012, he took home Best Social Action Song for his track “The Next Right Thing” at the 11th Annual Independent Music Awards, his second IMA win. For his 2013 “Things I Should Let You Know” CD Release tour, he teamed with Autism Speaks and raised more than $5,000 for the not-for-profit organization.
