About the event
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Originally from the Fingerlakes region of Upstate New York, Kirstie Lynn's lyrics and virtuosic vocal lines bring to life stories of love, heartache, and the search for a greater meaning. She has extensive experience as a classically trained vocalist with a passion for songwriting, always looking to marry poetry and melody. Lynn is also an avid and active naturalist working in outdoor education and conservation, through which many of her songs find their inspiration.
As your local outsider, Galen Clark introduces an alternative perspective and approach to music that contains multitudes. Migratory melodies, multi-instrumental fluency, and mysterious texture all outline the stylings of the newly transplanted Cuyahoga Valley songwriter, producer, and musician. Sharing songs spanning the stoic mountains of Idaho’s lost river range to the ancient hum of the Shenandoah Valley, Galen draws upon energy strewn between varied time and place, a broader quest for belonging, and rejuvenation beyond the front door. Kirstie Lynn and Galen Clark are a folk duo presenting a nostalgic and warm sound, blending elements of folk and progressive americana all within an independent framework. The two met while attending Shenandoah Conservatory, Lynn pursuing a degree in Opera and Voice Performance and Clark a degree in Music Production and Recording Technologies, and have remained friends ever since. After a serendipitous reunion in Kansas City back in 2020, these old friends decided to pursue their folk music endeavors together. Watch the duo perform Caffeine from their 2022 album Cindergarden overlooking the Western Auto building in Kansas City.
