We present this performance with so much gratitude to Berchem Moses for sponsoring our MAC live series.

Former Rolling Stone music editor Dave Marsh says: "This is a brilliant, brilliant album. I have had this reaction once in the last 10 years and that was the first time I heard Patty Griffin."

“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. She believes in the redemptive power of the shared secret; and is utterly unafraid to mine the darkest corners of her life for songs that turn fear into resilience and isolation into community". The Boston Globe

"What a blessing to have worked with someone as talented as Antje. With a voice like hers, and songs as good as these, a producer (especially a first-time producer!) just tries to get out of the way, to do no harm, and to let the artist speak for herself." - Richard Shindell

Join the MAC on October 12th at 8pm for a very special MACLive opening performance: award-winning singer, songwriter - Antje Duvekot. The MAC is conveniently located in downtown Milford, CT at 40 Railroad Avenue. It's the closest you can get to the train station because it IS a repurposed Civil War era train station right on the Metro North line. Come early, Bring Your Own or enjoy our Speakeasy Lounge prior to the show. Sit around a candlelit table, glass in hand, relax and enjoy quality artistry with friends and community.

Antje has won some of the top songwriting awards including the Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, the prestigious, Kerrville (TX) "Best New Folk Award" and in one of the nation's top music markets, she won the Boston Music Award for "Outstanding Folk Act", three of the top prizes in the singer songwriter world.

Antje has extensive touring experience, criss-crossing the US and Europe many times. She is a compelling live performer and has been invited to play some of the top festivals including The Newport Folk Festival as well as the Mountain Stage, Philadelphia and Kerrville Festivals. Internationally, she's headlined the The Celtic Connections Festival in Scotland and the Tonder Festival in Denmark.

Her debut CD was produced by Seamus Egan, founder of the Irish super group, SOLAS and the project was released on songwriter Ellis Paul's label and quickly attracted international attention for Antje. It was voted "#1 Folk Release of 2006" by the Boston Globe and was named to the "Top10 Releases of the Year" by National Public Radio's, Folk Alley. Her follow up albums "the Near Demise of the Highwire Dancer" and "New Siberia" were produced by Richard Shindell and feature other "folk royalty" such as John Gorka, Lucy Kaplancky and Mark Erelli.

Join Antje for our MAC Live event, sponsored by Berchem Moses, Attorneys and Counselors at Law. Sit at a candlelit table, surrounded by friends, drink in hand. BYOEEE* vibe (Bring Your Own Everything Except the Entertainment) or join us in our Speakeasy Lounge. Concessions are available all night. Doors open 7:30pm so you can relax around a candlelit table and enjoy a cocktail or two pre-show.
