The following is a sample introduction you might use when introducing Becky Schlegel to your audience:
“Becky Schlegel has emerged at the forefront of the Upper Midwest’s bluegrass, country and acoustic rock scene. Raised in small town South Dakota, Becky has been making music for as long as she can remember. Her pure, sweet voice with its hint of country twang allows her to woo her listeners with a heartfelt ballad one minute, and rock their souls with rousing bluegrass the next. Deeply imaginative, and achingly personal, Becky’s songs are a distinctive blend of country, bluegrass, folk and blues. The Becky Schlegel Band released their second CD last year, which combines her heart-breakingly beautiful voice and original music with the deft touch of many talented musicians for a truly inspiring recording. Becky Schlegel is the toast of the town.”
The technical requirements for this artist will vary according to which ensemble (solo, duo, trio or quartet) is chosen. Specific details may be discussed when contracting this artist.
No matter where Becky performs, she is a class act. Her music is original, drawing on the influence of classic country, bluegrass, folk, and her own thoughtful spirit. Becky’s incredible voice floats, whispers then soars above music of the highest quality. She takes her listeners on a musical journey, exploring new places and meeting new people in every song. Bring Becky to your venue, and your guests will experience their emotions.
The Becky Schlegel duo also features the amazing banjo playing of her partner, Brian Fessler. It is always a real treat to be a part of a musical performance by Becky Schlegel. Also, for slightly bigger sound, Becky can add two or more additional top-notch bluegrass musicians to her show.
