A former member of NY’s Native Tongue, Beacon’s own Jen Clapp was a key player in the early ’90’s folk-punk scene in the city, with a steady gig at the legendary Cafe Sin-é, the stomping grounds of a young Jeff Buckley. In 2009 she released her debut CD, Lonesome Sunbeam, to much critical acclaim. www.jenclapp.com
Armed banjo, guitar, and stompbox, McKenzie’s "Gin" won the 2009 Independent Music Award (IMA) for Best Americana Song from her acclaimed debut, ‘Chances’. She received two additional IMA nominations (Best Americana Album and Best Cover Song for "Eleanor Rigby") and was named a winner in last year's Mountain Stage NewSong Contest.
