Based out of Duluth, MN, activist and singer-songwriter Rachael Kilgour has been captivating audiences for nearly ten years. With vulnerability, wit and a whole lot of passion, she effortlessly merges the personal and political and demonstrates an innate ability to inspire listeners of all backgrounds.
Kilgour has released two full-length albums and a three-song EP and has performed across the country in coffeehouses, concert series and radio studios as well as protests and picket lines. She’s shared the stage with such folk luminaries as Catie Curtis, Greg Brown and Holly Near and earned a local reputation as “everyone’s favorite, spirited folkster.” In 2015 Kilgour was chosen as the winner of the LEAF Newsong Contest and took fifth place in the Telluride Troubadour Songwriting Competition. She was also selected as a semifinalist for the Mountain Stage Newsong Contest in 2013 and was a finalist in both the Big Top Chautauqua and Kerrville Music-2-Life songwriting contests before that.

Erika Kulnys“By possessing the ingenious intellect and activist zeal of Ani DiFranco combined with the poetic skepticism of Leonard Cohen, Kulnys is artfully cementing her place in the history books of unsung artistic heroes of our time…Hurricane tampers with the ballad-aesthetic of early Tori Amos, as her achingly honest, yet beautifully created craftsmanship is as vast as the North Atlantic Ocean. Spin the cheekiness of Dolly Parton with the overt sexuality of Kinnie Starr, then dash the toe-tapping rhythms of Newfoundland’s Colleen Power to conjure up a sense of her multi-dimensional musical talents.” – Shannon Webb-Campbell for Filly.ca

Erika Kulnys is a classically trained singer-songwriter, poet, composer and performance artist who challenges boundaries and touches hearts. Her background in Nova Scotian folk, classical, world music, poetry and her concern for social issues create an original idiom that yields carefully crafted songs robust with passion. Erika’s musical scope ranges from folky love songs to rock-pop and she has the gift of writing meaningful songs that remain intimate while being political. In the story-telling folk tradition, Erika writes about real human experiences and the joyful conviction in her voice opens wide her listeners’ hearts.
