Boston to Seattle, Madison to Florida...  BIO and TOUR NEWS

BIO: The vivid songwriting of Catie Curtis combines insightful lyrics with addictive melodies and energy. Catie's studio work, engaging live shows and impressive touring career in the US and Europe earn rave reviews and wide recognition. Her songs have been featured on Dawson's Creek, Felicity, Alias, Chicago Hope, and Grey's Anatomy, as well as in several independent films. She's toured with Dar Williams, Mary Chapin Carpenter and as part of Lilith Fair. Catie was named grand prize winner of the International Songwriting Competition, for her song "People Look Around", co-written with Mark Erelli, from a field of 15,000 entries from 82 countries. The song appeared on Long Night Moon (©2006, Compass Records) an intricate work of stripped down modern folk.  In the fall of 2008 Catie Curtis released the critically acclaimed Sweet Life (her ninth recording).  Throughout the fall of 2008 and the beginning of 2009 Curtis toured Sweet Life, began a youth music endowment ("Aspire to Inspire") and gave away guitars to underprivileged youth, and in January 2009 performed at the Human Rights Campaign's official Obama inaugural ball. The Washington Post, The Advocate, TimeOut Chicago, and Curve Magazine all lined up to praise Sweet Life and Blurt went so far as to hail 2008 "The Year of Catie Curtis". After a year of amazing, life-changing experiences, it's no wonder Curtis was itching to jump back into the studio to try something she'd never done before: make a string band album.  Over the years, Curtis' many fans have requested stripped down versions of her classic songs, capturing the spirit and intimacy of her live shows. With Hello Stranger, named one of the top ten folk CDs of 2009 by the Boston Globe, Curtis achieves that career goal.

Monday, MARCH 22.  One of these things is not like the others:  New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Minnesota.  Okay, so I'm in New Hampshire this Thursday, at the Flying Goose,  and through the mriacle of modern transportation, I will perform in the Midwest Friday through Sunday.   All three Midwest shows are with LUCY KAPLANKSY (captivating singer/songwriter), in Madison, Milwaukee-ish, and Minneapolis, MN.  

In April I will be returning to the Pacific Northwest!  I will be at the Bend Spring Festival on April 17th, and in Seattle, Portland and Eugene as well. Meghan Toohey will be accompanying me on those shows.  Further down the road, I'll be in Florida, before returning to Club Passim in Cambridge, on May 7.  There are active links to the venues/tickets in the GIGS section of this site.  Some of the shows have sold out so please get your tickets in advance of the date whenever possible.  "Your music always gets me out of my teenage funk... Thanks for the awesome show!" says one fan of indeterminate age.  Whatever your age, come on out. :)

Friend me or become a fan on Facebook for lots more posts and photos.  
I look forward to meeting you out there.
