Chicago 2012 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Levin Performance Studio, Chicago, IL; December 1, 2012. Very good to excellent FM broadcast, slight hiss.

Think The Roches and The Refugees. Again, something soothing for the holiday season.

Winter is a time for gathering – and sometimes it’s even more fun to gather with friends than family! It’s in this spirit that a new holiday tradition has emerged – a tradition of friendship and music. For a third consecutive year [2012] songwriters Antje Duvekot, Anne Heaton, Meg Hutchinson and Natalia Zukerman will tour as “Winterbloom”.


In September 2008, Cambridge MA’s Club Passim manager Matt Smith booked the artists to perform in-the-round together at their popular “Cutting Edge of the Campfire Festival.” A rare occasion, since by that time all were already sell-out headliners at the venue individually. In that performance, the four women had so much fun, and audience response was so positive, they immediately booked three more shows together for that December.

In 2009, Duvekot, Heaton, Hutchinson and Zukerman reunited to create, write, arrange, record and perform together officially – and thus “Winterbloom” was born. They released a holiday EP entitled “Winterbloom: Traditions Rearranged” in 2009.

Thanks to mdshrk1 for recording the show and sharing the tracks at The Traders’ Den.

  6. It’s sad when anyone dies, but I don’t understand why people are using the comments for this show to memorialize people who have no connection with this show. ???

    Thanks for the Winterbloom!

  7. Gerald, it was the most recent concert posted here, and they’re fans of the deceased. darth makes comments totally unrelated to the concerts because he’s needy for attention.
