Kyle Knutson
Front Porch Blues
www.kyleknutson.com

Coining the phrase “Front Porch Blues”, Kyle Knutson creates a sound that separates him apart from most singer/songwriter acts of today. With a predominate finger-picking style of guitar playing that becomes augmented by the tapping of his foot on a wooden plank, finally the occasional notes of a harmonica accompanied between vocal lines will leave you feeling as though you are on your front porch on a warm Summers’ eve kicking it easy with a cold beverage of choice in hand.

Noon Concert: Elisabeth Hunstad @ Old Courthouse Museum
Feb 1 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Elisabeth Hunstad

 

 

Elisabeth Hunstad
Vocal Mix of Jazz and Pop

 

Small stature, huge sound. Fans say that’s a perfect description of Elisabeth Hunstad. Her petite size and low key, yet upbeat, demeanor does not give one a hint of what is to come when she cuts loose with a full voiced, righteously soulful delivery of a classic like Aretha Franklin’s ‘Respect’. People tend to eagerly listen up… and become fans. Elisabeth has an eclectic taste in music and does not like to limit herself, or her listeners, to any one genre of music. Her list of musical influences extends to everything that she hears. Her style combines elements of jazz, rock, pop, gospel, Motown, R&B, Latin, folk, country, art music and contemporary sounds, among others. Elisabeth’s live performances captivate the audience and listeners have remarked that it’s almost like listening to a recording – only better.
