 Nora Jane Struthers and Korby Lenker have both been here before, and we couldn’t be more excited to have them performing together on our Seven Steps Up stage.
 
Nora Jane Struthers has written “some of the most quietly powerful narratives within the new wave of Americana artists.” Ann Powers, NPR Music.
Born in Virginia and raised in New Jersey, she began playing as a pre-teen. Attending festivals and fiddlers’ conventions around the south with her banjo-playing father. “These were pretty much just a group of musicians camping in a muddy field for a week, playing tunes and singing songs,” she recalls. “But these traditional music communities greatly influenced me and informed my decision later to move to Nashville and try to become a professional musician.” After graduating from NYU with an education degree, she taught high school English in Brooklyn and put her music career on the back burner. But a visit to the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in the early 2000s changed that. Watching one of her heroes, Tim O’Brien, she stood in front of the stage, glanced back at the crowd and the mountains and thought, “This is what I want to do.” There followed that move to Nashville, much woodshedding as a writer and touring, with Bearfoot, and her first solo-fronted group, the Bootleggers (who won the 2008 Telluride band competition). Along the way, she worked with bluegrass stars like O’Brien, Stuart Duncan and Bryan Sutton, and released two critically-acclaimed albums. In 2012, Struthers formed the band Party Line, who joined her the last time she was here. This time around, she’s coming with our other artist friend, Korby Lenker!

Korby Lenker is a sneaky-good songwriter. And singer. And multi-instrumentalist.An abbreviated list of Lenker’s achievements so far includes: a significant …amount of airplay on the legendary Seattle indie rock station KEXP; a BBC 2 interview with Bob Harris, which is only about the highest honor a rootsy singer-songwriter touring the U.K. can get; opening slots for acts ranging from Willie Nelson to Ray LaMontagne, Nickel Creek, Keith Urban, Susan Tedeschi and Tristan Prettyman; a successful run with one of the hottest young West Coast bluegrass bands of the aughts; and wins in the Merlefest folk songwriting contest as well as the Kerrville Folk Festival’s elite New Folk songwriting competition.

Check out the two of them singing “Let’s Just Have Supper” together in the first video below.
