The extraordinary acoustic music duo Bettman & Halpin bring their inimitable talents to Moraine Valley! An Americana folk duo, singer/fiddler Stephanie Bettman and multi-instrumentalist Luke Halpin, present a live show that offers a combination of charm, humor and unforgettable original music.

Critics throughout the country have heaped praise on Bettman, a singer with an angelic voice and a magical touch with the fiddle, along with her musical partner, the guitar/mandolin virtuoso Halpin. Their concert performances and recordings have drawn favorable comparisons to the likes of Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris and Alison Krauss. On stage, Bettman & Halpin exude a warm and joyous personality in interpreting their original songs and meticulous musical arrangements.

Living Out Loud Los Angeles says, “Every song hijacks your heart and takes you through an emotional ride. The chemistry that Bettman & Halpin have on stage is genuine. Their performance was a breath of fresh air.”

Together, Bettman & Halpin are fast earning a reputation in folk and bluegrass circles for mesmerizing performances filled with irresistible lyrics, transcendent harmonies and roof-raising instrumentals. Most of the duo’s songs are originals, with Bettman as principal writer. Some songs in their vast repertoire are unabashedly foot-stomping bluegrass-tinged tunes that seem to make audiences beam with joy and practically dance in their seats. Some songs are haunting explorations of love and loss. Some offer reflections about the understated magic and mystery of seemingly mundane struggles in everyday life.

They have played various festivals and performing arts centers all over the country and are the subject of the documentary Stephanie Bettman & Luke Halpin: It All Comes Back To Love Tour that premiered on public television in Los Angeles in December 2012.
