Katy at the Fitzgerald Theater

Our second outdoor concert of 2014 features Minnesota-Music-Award-nominated Katy Vernon. Expect a fun blend of ukulele-driven folk and pop music. If you visit her web site you would learn that:

“Katy Vernon has done something it’s not easy to do: sustain country roots, go pop, and be distinctly original at the same time.”

Katy Vernon has had a very busy couple of years. She has performed at venues such as the Aster Cafe (Which sold out for her Second Annual Uke-Fest!), The Amsterdam Bar, 331 Club, Icehouse, Lee’s Liquor Lounge, The Guthrie and even the Fitzgerald Theater with Garrison Keillor!

Katy Vernon is a Minneapolis / St. Paul based singer songwriter. She grew up in London, England and has been writing and singing as long as she can remember. She moved to the US after meeting her future American husband on a train from Amsterdam to Berlin.

As lead singer for the group ‘The Camdens’, Katy played all over the Twin Cities. She was also nominated for a Minnesota Music Award for her song ‘Invitation’ which was competing for Song Of The Year.

Katy picked up a ukulele and started writing again. Soon after that she met Jim Walsh and started playing with his Hootenanny at the Aster Cafe.

Katy successfully raised funds for her debut solo CD. She is grateful for the support from friends and fans and excited to share her first solo release “Before I Forget”.

Bring your own blankets or camp chairs and enjoy some great music!
