About the Event

Watch Paper Birds

Paper Birds is a wonderful, once-in-a-blue-moon pop-up band born of the friendship between two super talented singer/songwriter duos: Our home town favorites and Claudia Russell and Bruce Kaplan, and Wisconsin’s Katie Dahl and Rich Higdon.   Claudia and Bruce bring their unique Americana sound, driven by Claudia’s gorgeous voice, eclectic and engaging songwriting and the couple’s dynamic instrumental arrangements. Claudia and Bruce have performed more than 1000 shows at festivals, concert halls, clubs, community centers, backyards, and living rooms, often alongside great collaborators—John Gorka, Laurie Lewis, Don Henry, Peter Rowan, Tish Hinojosa, and Christine Lavin, to name a few.    Calling the Northwoods of Wisconsin home, Katie Dahl adds guitar, vocals, and sparkling songwriting to the mix, alongside her partner Rich Higdon’s upright bass and percussion. Katie is an internationally touring songwriter whose five albums showcase her deep, smooth alto and smart, vulnerable songs. Between the two of them, Dahl and Higdon have shared stages and studios with folks like Dar Williams, Peter Mulvey, Eliza Gilkyson, Cheryl Wheeler. Katie’s newest album, Seven Stones held #2 on the Folk Radio charts for the entire summer of 2023.   But Paper Birds is more than the sum of its parts. Claudia, Katie, Bruce and Rich have been friends for two decades, so they banter naturally, and sing and play on each other’s songs--making every Paper Birds show memorable, fun, and engaging.   Audiences and presenters alike have responded to the deep talent in Paper Birds. Robin Dewey, who has produced more than 100 shows in Davis over 12 plus years said that the Paper Birds show last summer was one of her top 3 concerts ever!   So come join us and check out this flocking good band!Watch Paper Birds
