will be flapping up to San Francisco to play an intimate almost-solo acoustic set. She'll be joined by Rebekah Stever singing dreamy harmonies on well-worn originals and new fairy songs. Heather Normandale will bring in her magical mermaid folk to seal this into a lovely and memorable summer evening of wonder and song.
Heather Normandale Music
From Melodic and rootsy mermaid folk to dreamy psychadelic pop, Heather's emotive vocal parts, syncopated banjo rhythms and afropop inspired electric guitar are met with a solid and driving rhythm section with upright bass, drums and balafon. Lyrics playfully celebrate the inner compass that seeks models in nature.
is the monicker for singer-songwriter Kasia Kugay, whose brief time tending chickens made a permanent mark on her soul and music. A native of San Francisco born of Polish and Turkish immigrants, Kugay blends her musical heritage with American roots music. Her voice is the gentle river lilting along formations of acoustic guitar and clawhammer banjo. The resultant folk is “unique and intricately crafted, well-suited to Kugay’s deeply emotive voice” (Good Times), which ranges from clear and bright to dark and sultry. Chicken Mama released her self-titled debut album late last summer, featuring many of the talented musicians in the vibrant Santa Cruz music community. The album is a collection of songs that pay lyrical homage to the land and the ones she has walked it with.
