Claudia Schmidt is a truly gifted master of folk music, jazz and the spoken word. A Midwestern treasure, she is renowned for her spellbinding performances, enchanting presence, gorgeous voice and exquisite work on dulcimer and guitar. Whether performing in clubs, theaters, festivals, TV or radio, her music delights with clarity, humor and wonder. So much more than a simple performer with a talent to entertain, Schmidt transports audiences into her world with a rapt, almost child-like sense of discovery.
You may have heard her numerous appearances on A Prairie Home Companion and at The Folk Project’s Acoustic Getaway and Troubadour Acoustic Concert Series, but her accomplishments as a beloved national artist extend far beyond those well-respected realms. Her many recordings on Flying Fish/Rounder Records, both as a soloist and as a duo with Sally Rogers, are cherished throughout the folk community. Her later recordings delve into the worlds of jazz, folk/acoustic and the spoken word. Her award-winning scores for theatrical productions have garnered wide acclaim.
This Stayaway e-concert will be a tour de force. Claudia’s literate and intelligent approach, with passion and compassion for people and the world around us, is overwhelming and thrilling.
