Courtney Hartman & Mehdi Qamoum
Courtney Hartman is an acclaimed guitarist, singer and writer from the foothills of Colorado. Acoustic Guitar Magazine recognizes her as a “distinctive guitar stylist… and a songwriter that delights and disturbs” while PopMatters hailed her most recent release as “a delicate light glistening softly in the darkness.” Bill Frisell, Mike Campbell, and Buffy St. Marie are a few of the artists Courtney has created with, as she continues to collaborate across cultures and disciplines, always seeking to bring voice to the hushed and inexpressible.
Morocco-based singer and composer Mehdi Qamoum specializes in Afro-Moroccan gnawa music and traditional Moroccan music. He is currently researching other music styles through collaborative works with different artists from around the world.
