Monday – Pat Wictor
Pat first burst on the folk and acoustic scene as an innovative slide guitarist known for fresh and memorable interpretations of traditional and contemporary songs. He has since made his mark as a singer-songwriter penning lean and poetic songs that honor – and subvert – rural blues and gospel traditions. For seven years he toured as one third of Brother Sun, the powerful harmonizing trio with Joe Jencks and Greg Greenway. His latest solo release, This is Absolutely Real: Visions and Versions of Phil Ochs, was nominated for an Independent Music award in their Best Tribute Album category.

The UK’s Broadway Baby describes Kiya as “an award-winning American singer-songwriter who writes smart, funny and poignant songs about the famous and not-so-famous legends of America.” Kiya “serves up a lively batch of original songs that follow on to two of the oldest traditions of folk music:
storytelling and political broadside.” She tours solo and with her band, and makes her happy home in Austin, TX. More at www.kiyaheartwood.com.
