8:00 :: Lauren Lapointe

Savannah GA-based singer/songwriter Lauren Lapointe has been gaining recognition across the country for her soulful songs, unique voice, and strong live performances. Her new release “Butterfly,” was produced by award-winning Tom Prasada-Rao and reached #8 on the Georgia Roots Artist Radio Airplay Chart and #13 on the Roots Music Report Folk Charts in Dec. 2007. This CD features 14 tracks of melodic folk-rock that showcase Lapointe’s versatility as a songwriter and vocalist. Her songs include themes such as self-empowerment, following your dreams, as well as story songs inspired by living in the South and growing up in Canada. Lapointe’s influences include Canadian songwriters Joni Mitchell, Sarah McLachlan, and Loreena McKennitt as well as Southern storytellers Bobbie Gentry, Lucinda Williams, and Gillian Welch.

Her 2005 release “Beautiful Shadow” was featured on Georgia Public Radio and aired on 15 stations across the state. The Savannah Morning News described it as “impressive; emphasizing strong songwriting and showcasing Lapointe’s rich alto voice.” The CD was well-received by venues and fans across the country and Lapointe began touring on a full-time basis. She made her debut at the renowned Bluebird Cafe in Nashville in 2006 and has performed at such prestigious venues as the Rockwood Music Hall in NYC, the Jefferson Freedom Cafe in Ft. Worth TX, Anderson Fair in Houston TX, and The Burren Pub in Boston.

9:00 :: Harm'n Me featuring Harmon Koeltz & Laura Monk

The acoustic duo of Harmon Koeltz and Laura Monk bring with them an eclectic musical background and a collection of well loved (and not the same old often heard!) tunes.

With graceful harmonies and unique guitar stylings Harm & Me delivers a menagerie of songs ranging from old standards to current hits; covering a unique mix of genres including pop, jazz, rock, Americana, folk and classics. While you won’t hear any Mozart (unless a young’n requests Twinkle Twinkle Little Star!) don’t be surprised if a little Louis Jordan turns up right after The Rolling Stones.

Laura Monk was raised on a steady diet of Carol King, Neil Young and Dolly Parton, Monk seems to have traveled the same inspirational road as Natalie Merchant and Neko Case.
