Antje Duvekot "Morse On Music"

WBOS "Morse on Music"
Steve Morse- Critic At Large for the Boston Globe and WBOS

Antje Duvekot at Club Passim. Folk icon Ellis Paul has said of
Duvekot, "I think she's going to be the next great American folk
singer-songwriter.'' That may be an over-the-top assessment, but it
just might turn out to be true. A Heidelberg native who spent her teenage years in the U.S. and now lives in Boston, Duvekot has a unique talent born of both continents. She completely mesmerized a
sold-out crowd at Passim, spinning musical stories about everyone from
her father to past-tense boyfriends and even George Bush. Each song
was a mini-pearl, spanning romantic and spiritual themes, as well as
sharp social observations. Tonally, she sounded like a young Shawn
Colvin at times (a definite compliment), plus she had a subtle sense
of humor that can only help in the long run. To top it off, she's a
fine guitar player and her cover of The Band's "Acadian Driftwood''
was a complete delight.
