Described as genuinely talented with classic folk voices, Patty Stevenson and Craig Siemsen are known for their gorgeous harmonies, impeccable musicianship, playful stage humor, and jewel-like original songs.  Patty says about performing, “I try for magic – nothing less! For the place that opens hearts and will move an audience to tears or smiles.”

Patty and Craig were individually 'out there' enjoying their music, when, in the mid- 1980s, they met while performing at a folk music festival. For many years, the couple 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. Today, they continue to create and record original songs as well as their own variations on timeless pieces that often span the ages of creativity in sound.

    “(The songs) jumped out like old pals.” ~ MARK DVORAK

Patty and Craig tour the Midwest and beyond.  Their work includes solo recordings, guest appearances on others’ CDs, and, most recently, a well received duo CD entitled, “One Person”, that has received airplay around the country, as well as on WFMT’s Midnight Special.  Enjoy the celebration of life and love with veteran song masters Patty Stevenson and Craig Siemsen.
 
    “It has been a pleasure to listen to your CD.  It has a wonderful underlying spirit   
         but also a great variety; that's not easy to do. Nice work, to put it mildly.”
~ PETER BERRYMAN
