Kayle & Matt Hotte
Kayla’s love of traditional music is evident in her song choice and writing style. She and her brother Matt were raised on bluegrass music, their current project being a western swing band. Kayla & Matt Hotte as a duo play a special blend of bluegrass and old time brother duets.
Hip swinger, folk singer Ellen Froese Kooijenga is not Joan Baez, or a sheep, but her vibrato may tell otherwise. Ellen draws primary influence from folksters such as Pete Seeger, Donovan, and Jack Elliot, with a sprinkling of anything from Buddy Holly to Bruce Springsteen. She keeps her sound unique, whether performing a cover of an old traditional tune, or a fresh new original. After releasing an album with her trio of old-tyme toe tappers, In With the Old, Ellen is excited for the release of her first solo album, “Get On With the Blues”!
