Singer/songwriters Danny Schmidt and Carrie Elkin perform at Festival Theatre Saturday, Feb.15, in a combined concert set to begin at 7:30 p.m. Both are returning artists with a flair for original, accessible acoustic folk music.
Although Schmidt and Elkin normally tour separately, they are a romantic partnership in real life, not just musical life.
Schmidt is best known for his poetic lyrics, which have drawn favorable comparisons to Leonard Cohen and Townes Van Zandt for their depth and complexity.
Elkin is best known for her soulful and dynamic vocals, which have drawn favorable comparisons to Patty Griffin at her most powerful, and Nanci Griffith at her most intimate.
Tickets for the Danny Schmidt and Carrie Elkin concert are $21 in advance, $26 at the door and available online or by phone at 715-483-3387.
Festival Theatre is in downtown St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin at 210 N. Washington St.
