Wine & Song: Antje Duvekot; Jesse Valenzuela; special guest Igor Bulanov
Antje Duvekot won the Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, she was also a Kerrville ‘New Folk’ winner, and in one of the nation’s top music markets, she won the Boston Music Award for Outstanding Folk Act. The Boston Globe said “Duvekot has gotten hotter, faster than any local songwriter in recent memory. Her songs feel at once fresh faced and firmly rooted, driven by the whispery sensuality of her voice… utterly unafraid to mine the darkest corners of her life for songs that turn fear into resilience and isolation into community.” Jesse Valenzuela is best known as a member of alternative rock group, the Gin Blossoms. He was responsible for writing or co-writing five of the band’s Top 40 hits, including the #1 single “Til I Hear It From You”. In addition to his career in the Gin Blossoms, Jesse has written, produced and performed with a wide-ranging variety of artists including Stevie Nicks, Judy Collins, The Calling, Los Lobos and The Rembrandts, among others.
