Rebecca Folsom and Liz Barnez; an evening of music, love, laughter, and connection

Two powerful singer-songwriters take the stage offering a musical bounty that will warm your heart and feed your soul. Each a powerhouse in her own right – award-winning songwriters, dynamic performers, and Colorado sweethearts. From the most tender songwriting to rock the house grooves this is a not to be missed show.

Liz Barnez started her musical career in the clubs and festivals in her hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana. She brought her eclectic style of music, which incorporates elements of folk, New Orleans R&B, blues, jazz, country, and pop, to Colorado in the late 80’s and hasn’t slowed down since. Her acoustic swamp groove is apparent in her guitar and percussion playing, songwriting, and soulful inspired singing. Liz was voted by her peers as the “Best Singer-Songwriter Female” in the FoCoMA (Fort Collins Musicians Association) Peer Awards 2020! In November of 2019 Liz was inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame as a member of the Mother Folkers (the most carefully pronounced name in show business). The Mother Folkers is a group of women musicians who began in the 1970’s  with original members Mary Flower, Mary Stribling, Kathi DeFrancis, and Eileen Niehouse. Over the years the members have included Mollie O’Brien, Carla Skiaky, and Vicki Taylor to name a few. Liz was given the prestigious “Lifetime Achievement Award” by FoCoMA in 2012. http://www.lizbarnezmusic.com/

Rebecca Folsom’s world-class voice traverses a four-octave range, has been described as “knock-you-to-your-knees”, “shining,” and “her songs hit like little earthquakes!” Rebecca brings both a pure vocal quality reminiscent of old Appalachia and a blues prowess. She leads audiences on a dynamic journey of the heart. Songs off her CDs, “Extraordinary Days” and “Little Medicines,” went to #1 on the Folk DJ Chart, #5 on Roots Music Report, and #5 on the National Americana Chart. She’s finishing a new CD, Sanctuary scheduled for release in 2022. No Depression magazine calls Rebecca’s and Sanctuary‘s debut at Folk Alliance International of “I am The Power of Love “..a stirring performance.” Sanctuary was also a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition in the Performance Category. Folsom offers a delicious blend of front porch instrumentals, achingly beautiful vocals, and soaring harmonies. A true renaissance woman, Rebecca is a singer-songwriter, recording artist and national touring musician, a published author of poetry, oil painter, and teacher of Creative Mastery.  www.rebeccafolsom.com
