Amanda is a regular on the Winona music circuit and a big fan of the Cranberries. Her signature voice and flawless strumming make her a must-see-act. Powerful vocals accompanied by solid guitar joined by Peter Boysen on lead, Amber Boysen on the drums and Randy Kline on bass. Expect to hear a mix of her newly released pop/rock pieces from "Better Life," music from her upcoming full length, and a few select covers.
Amy Abts is a musician, writer, actor and artist who from the age of 7 has been performing consistently over 34 years.
Amy’s acoustic sound veers from soft and pretty to alt rock realness performed with her trademark folk punk earnestness. For this show she will be playing songs from her latest album Fifty-Fifty, a few from her back catalogue and a couple of covers. https://www.amyabts.com/about/
