A singer songwriter Folk/Americana music series. Beginning in January 2017, concerts will held the first Saturday evening of each month.
Joan & Joni is a tribute to Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell performed by singer/songwriters Allison Shapira and Kipyn Martin. In Joan & Joni, Allison and Kipyn bring to the stage many of Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell’s well-known originals and folk songs, as well as a few hidden gems. They also highlight the impact these legendary women have had on their own songwriting and performance.
Two up-and-coming musicians from the DC-area folk scene, Kipyn and Allison met in November 2013. Both classically trained singers, they soon realized their musical styles and influences were similarly shaped by the folk revival music of the '60s. Soon, Joan & Joni was born.
Our Bios: Kipyn Martin is an award-winning Americana singer/songwriter whose roots sink into the banks of the Shenandoah River. Allison Shapira is a recovering opera singer from Boston who recently found her authentic voice as a folksinger and songwriter.
