New England natives Andy & Judy Daigle have been singing together since 2009. They began writing songs in 2011. Today, this talented folk duo performs regularly at coffeehouses, festivals, libraries, and stages where they have been featured artists, openers, and headliners blending their growing list of original songs with popular folk covers. They tour through the Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, and Great Lakes Regions and have been featured on popular folk music radio programs. Their third album, “Follow Your Dream,” was chosen No. 1 top pick for 2015 by Four Strong Winds, KVMR Nevada City, CA.
As contemporary folk singer/songwriters, Andy and Judy have been able to explore many different genres and facets of folk music. Their original music is inspired by the experiences and wisdom gained through everyday living. Some of their songs have their genesis in historical events, where they bring to light a significant time or place. The selection of music that they cover ranges from “old-timey” traditional songs right through the tunes by the folk music stalwarts. They invite the audience to participate by singing along, clapping, or stomping. They tell stories through their songs, many of which are based on historical events, times, or places.
