WHAT’S COMING NEXT?

Delightful Milwaukee based husband and wife duo Patty Stevenson and Craig Siemsen have graciously agreed to do a house concert at the home of Valerie Birk! Route One House Concerts, will be hosting Patty and Craig on the same night and time we would have had them appear at Edgar’s Place Coffeehouse at UUCC, Saturday, March 10th at 7:30 PM (which has been relocated due to unexpected flooding).

Described as genuinely talented with classic folk voices, Patty Stevenson and Craig Siemsen are known for their gorgeous harmonies, impeccable musicianship, playful stage humor, and jewel-like original songs. Patty says about performing, “I try for magic – nothing less! For the place that opens hearts and will move an audience to tears or smiles.”

Patty and Craig were individually ‘out there’ enjoying their music, when, in the mid- 1980s, they met while performing at a folk music festival. For many years, the couple maintained solo careers, even after they married. Eventually, with the prodding of wise friends, they agreed to perform one show as a duo. The rest, as they say, is history. Today, they continue to create and record original songs as well as their own variations on timeless pieces that often span the ages of creativity in sound.
