Sarah Kirkland / Catie Offerman

Friday / September 28, 2012 / 8:00 p.m.
Red Room at Cafe 939

Boston
MA

Known around Music City for her unique musical blend of soul and country (and a good hair toss every now and then), Sarah Kirkland gets fans on their feet and singing along. Kirkland’s musical gifts were apparent from a very young age.  “I was singing along to the radio when I was 5 years old, and my dad couldn’t believe that I was able to sing the harmony parts with such ease. He encouraged me to keep singing what I was hearing because what I was doing wasn’t common for a young child,” she says. Kirkland recently cut a new three-song EP, produced by two-time Grammy winner Drew Ramsey. The songs take you through a range of emotions from celebration of a pending marriage to trepidation over new relationships. Sarah also released a video of the first single, “Bachelorette”, which is receiving rave reviews (and lots of views).

Catie Offerman is a multi-instrumentalist, with her primary instrument being fiddle. She also sings and writes. Originally from Texas, she is 18 years old and a senior at Berklee College of Music. She has three CDs, and a recent single entitled, "Kissin' in the Dark," produced by Grammy Award-winning Lloyd Maines. Her latest EP is Should've Made Me Stay."
