7/18 – Wendy Woo and Megan Burtt w/ Jeff Brinkman Band
As Colorado’s music scene has exploded over the past few years, one of its mainstays has been Wendy Woo. Her energetic personality, musical skills, and spirited songwriting have made her a media and fan favorite and have taken her to venues across the country including the Fox Theater and Red Rocks in Colorado, the Bitter End and the Living Room in New York, the Hotel Cafe in Los Angles, the Bluebird Café in Nashville, Sweetwater in Mill Valley, and Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, Georgia. Anticipating the rise of the independent artist, Woo formed her own corporation, Woo Music. Through that she runs her own record label (eight albums), publishing company, booking agency, and management company.
Megan Burtt’s technical skill and well-written lyrics earned her admission to the highly prestigious Berklee College of Music. Putting her degree and school-wide songwriting recognition to use, Megan received an honorable mention at the New York Songwriters Circle Competition. Most recently, she was the 2010 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter winner.
