The Pilgrim Chapel presents
John Statz- www.johnstatz.com
One of the more prolific and hard-working young songwriters working in the Americana genre, John Statz has released seven studio albums and performed all over North America (including Canada and Mexico) and Europe, all in just a shade over a decade. Throughout that time he’s been writing the kind of songs that float through your mind and stay nestled in your thoughts long after listening (American Songwriter) and it’s been said that his songwriting can stand beside the best and above the rest (No Depression).
Kelly Hunt - www.kellyhuntmusic.com
Kelly is a singer-songwriter of Americana/Roots music. Originally hailing from Memphis, TN, she now calls Kansas City home. Her style is a compelling blend of folk, blues, country, and Appalachian old-time music. She accompanies herself on a 1920s tenor banjo, combining time-honored clawhammer and finger-picking techniques with her own improvised strum-and-pick patterns, which highlight both the rhythmic and melodic distinctiveness of the banjo. But her primary instrument is her voice, which rings out with the powerful clarity of someone who has been singing all her life. Kelly's songs spring from a place of rich imagery and bespeak a genuine love of storytelling.
