Known for writing evocative, intelligent songs with a strong sense of place, Katie Dahl is a nationally touring playwright and songwriter whose work Dar Williams has called “the very best kind of songwriting.” Though she’s particularly well-respected on her home turf of Door County, Wisconsin, Katie has earned accolades nationwide for the depth and power of her alto voice, the literate candor of her songs, and the easy humor of her live performances. In 2015, Katie’s song “Crowns” hit #1 on the folk radio charts. Her latest album, “Wildwood,” was produced by JT Nero (Birds of Chicago).
