Patty Stevenson and Craig Siemsen will perform for the library at the Silco Theater on Wednesday, September 13, 4:00pm. Gorgeous harmonies, impeccable musicianship, playful stage humor, and jewel-like original songs are the hallmark of this duo. Patty Stevenson is a classically trained pianist and finger style guitarist. She often writes portrait songs of people in her life and in history. Craig Siemsen has been described as a leading midwest guitarist with a voice that is a mixture of honey and grit. His songwriting speaks to the human condition with poetry and humor. The combination of these two artists creates a sound that is full-on spark and joy.
Described as an acoustically good marriage, Patty and Craig were individually 'out there' enjoying their music, when, in the mid-1980s, they met while performing at a folk festival. For many years, Patty and Craig 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.
