KAIA FOWLER’s music is a cross-blend of folk, blues, roots and rock. With her warm, angelic voice and accomplished guitar work, Kaia shares songs that explore life’s longings, struggles and celebrations. Inspired by nature and the human condition, Kaia’s songs resonate with strength and vulnerability as she explores a vast emotional and spiritual landscape.
“Sharing songs helps me connect with others,” says Kaia. “When I sing about my loves and losses, concerns and inspirations, fears and hopes, I know we all share these experiences, each in our own way. There, in that moment, because of the magic of music and words, we understand one another better. We sense that we’re all in this together. I love that aspect of what I do most of all.”
“Each song is very well written, with a true authenticity of life. You can picture yourself or someone you know in each story line.” … “Fowler is a tremendous lyricist. Her lyrics paint pictures and her musical notes add the color…” Americana Gazette
MARK DVORAK is a modern day troubadour who has never stopped performing, writing and recording. He has been called “a folk singer’s folk singer” with “an encyclopedic knowledge of traditional songs.” His original songs are described as “wondrous” and “profound.” Though Mark often appears in theaters and on festival stages, he is also at home in a more intimate setting. His concerts are a mix of the familiar and the new, traditional folk and standards from the American songbook. He plays authentic country blues guitar and picks great old-time banjo.
Mark enjoys involving his audiences in sing-along songs, just like The Weavers used to do, and mixes in his own well-crafted and infectious originals. Mark has a refreshing, down-to-earth stage presence, and is a very engaging performer. He sings with a clear, signature voice, and he likes to joke around with the folks who attend his shows. Throughout the program he’ll interject personal anecdotes and add a touch of history or social context to the performance.
