Katie Dahl, Jess Holland and Emily White in Concert at Base Camp

Jess Holland

Door County musicians Katie Dahl and Jess Holland will join Chicago singer-songwriter Emily White for a concert at Base Camp Coffee Shop in Sister Bay on April 27 at 7 pm.

Dahl, Holland and White are Midwestern songwriters with loyal fan bases and multiple accolades to their collective credit. Though they normally perform individually, at Base Camp they will share their songs in an intimate “in-the-round” format, commenting on and adding texture to one another’s work. Dahl, Holland and White are firmly rooted in the folk tradition, with songs that roam freely to explore country, jazz, and rock traditions.

Local singer-songwriter Dahl, says the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, “combines old-fashioned populism, an abiding love of the land and wickedly smart love songs, all delivered in a rich and expressive alto.” Known for the literate candor of her songs and the easy humor of her live performances, Dahl also has two studio albums and an original musical play, Victory Farm, to her credit.

Holland is one of Door County’s favorite performers, a sensitive guitarist and vocalist who plays a thoughtful blend of original songs as well as compositions by her favorite songwriters. The combination of her soulful voice and expressive guitar and banjo playing infuse her folk music with elements of blues, pop, and old-time country.

Indie folk-rock touring singer/songwriter White, based in Chicago, has been described as standing out “conspicuously from the pack…with her hushed, preternaturally haunting vocal delivery and bewitching sense of indie-rock-informed melody.” She is currently in production on her fourth studio album, to be released in the fall of 2014.

Seating for the concert is limited and first-come, first-served. Refreshments and beverages will be available for purchase. Base Camp is located at 10904 Highway 42 in Sister Bay, below Ecology Sports. A $10 suggested donation is requested. For more information, visit or call Base Camp at 920.854.7894.
