Live: Bettman & Halpin


Bettman & Halpin have been touring as a duo since 2008 and can be found performing at various arts centers throughout the US as well as some of the biggest Folk and Bluegrass Festivals, Their music creates a fully acoustic and delightfully eclectic sound far greater than the sum of its parts; taking the listener from up-tempo down home fiddlin; to soulful sorrowful ballads, to super hooky folk/pop with catchy melodies and lyrics,

Stephanie Bettman is a true triple threat, An accomplished writer, singer, and fiddler; her lyrics are infused with wit and wisdom, poetry and insight, Vocally she draws comparison to the soaring soprano of Joan Baez and the plaintive emotion of Emmylou Harris, Meanwhile, her fiddling, which combines elements of bluegrass and jazz, is inspired by such masters as Stephane Grappelli and Byron Berline, A former actress and trapeze artist, Ms Bettman creates an authentic connection with her crowd no matter the size,

Luke Halpin is a renowned multi-instrumentalist A master of the guitar, mandolin fiddle and banjo, Halpin draws inspiration from the likes of Sam Bush, Mark O'Connor and Tony Rice and holds his own in comparison, A dynamic and sensitive vocalist himself, the harmony blend he and Ms Bettman achieve is at times simply transcendent Halpin has a long history in the music biz, having shared the stage with the likes of Merle Haggard Lone Star and The Steve Miller Band (to name a few), His quirky sense of humor is a perfect foil to Stephanie's dry witty presence,

Bettman & Halpin's 5 CDs have received national and international radio play along with critical acclaim; reaching the top 3 on Folk DJ radio and number I on The Roots Music Report. $20
