Dawn and Hawkes in concert
Austin based indie-folk-americana duo Dawn and Hawkes will make their Kessler debut by playing two sets on the small stage. They first appeared in front of a large audience at the Kerrville Folk Festival, where Dawn was awarded as a finalist in the New Folk competition for emerging songwriters. By June, they had recorded and released their self-produced EP, Golden Heart, featuring signature harmonies and an indie-folk sound influenced by Americana, country-rock and classic Beatlesque-pop. Written and recorded from their home in Austin, their debut album has climbed to the top 25 of Billboard's Folk chart.
