"This year's Newport Folk Festival lineup was completely booked. At least that's what producer Robert Jones thought, until he heard Somerville (Ma.) songwriter Antjje Duvekot. It was in June, and Jones says he had one of his rare "rings true" moments. It was the same feeling he had the first time he heard Bob Dylan, Doc Watson, Alison Krauss, Ellis Paul and Dar Williams.
'I find it difficult to explain what it is you just hear it." Jones says of such revelatory musical moments. "The music just swings right. The voice, the style, the melodies, the content:it all comes together". Jones immediately added the singer-songwriter to this weekend's Newport Folk Festival bill.

"No emerging local singer-songwriter has more buzz than Antje Duvekot"

"Duvekot was the introspective detangler of emotional knots - with all of
it meshing nicely. Duvekot's Newport debut was most triumphant!. "
