It's going to be a mid-February miracle in the crypt this weekend as we host SIX AMAZING SINGER-SONGWRITER SOLO PERFORMERS! Do yourself a favor and check out their music in the links below! If you've got a itch for some toe-tappin' good tunes, then come to the crypt on Friday (2/22) and Saturday (2/23) for a folkin' good time! Postcrypt is FREE (no cover!), ALL AGES, and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!
"This is mellow music that, in the rawest and most honest of manners, captures and explores the emotional terrain and fallout of a broken-hearted, aching soul." - Wave Maker Magazine
"Jo Schornikow has an incredibly warm voice that carries such an emotional punch…combined with poignant lyrics, beautiful minor chords and lo-fi tape hiss she conjures up a very moving and intimate exposure of the bedroom heart." - Folk Radio UK
With carefully crafted lyrics, arching melodies and ragged, soulful vocals, Cooper Formant makes beautiful music that we can't stop listening to!
"It is rare to find an artist who can stand up so well without musical adornments or lavish processing. Lorraine Leckie's Martini Eyes is short, poignant, and worth many listens." - Origivation Magazine
"Cellist Calum Ingram kicked things off, this time with a trio, playing his raw, high-energy blend of blues and funk, this time beginning with an intriguing jazz waltz groove" - New York Music Daily
"Wow. Joe Yoga just blew me away with a song that literally deserves to be in some kind of anthology of great American songs. Holy crap." - Astoria Music and Arts

10:30 Anna Vogelzang
"The Wisconsin troubadour has a penchant for playfulness when it comes to her music; however, when she gets serious, few craft a better folk song." - Huffington Post
8:30 Emily Drinker
Emily Drinker (BC '12) made her Postcrypt debut in March 2012 and rocked the house with her strong, soulful voice and powerful songwriting.
9:30 Kwesi Kankam

Be sure to come on down Friday 2/1, as we've got a whole host of musicians not to be missed!
The Broken Stares start at 8:30pm - this band is comprised of some of the most talented musicians in the traditional scene today, coming from a wide variety of musical backgrounds as well - the combination is an ensemble that can switch from a heart-wrenching song to a fast-paced jazzy fiddle tune in only as long as it takes them to switch instruments.
Bird Courage, a crypt favorite, plays at 9:30! These guys never fail to put on an amazing performance, with beautifully intertwined melodies and harmonies that leave you elated (and with a song stuck in your head.
Last but not least, Paul Sachs closes out the night with a 1030 set - Sachs has a strong voice that reaches out to you, and skilled picking along with "Lyrical and gritty acoustic/folk songs. Real working man's music with sidewalks and subway dirt thrown in."
