Bettman & Halpin

Multi-award winners Bettman & Halpin have a well-earned reputation for hypnotizing performances filled with irresistible lyrics, transcendent harmonies and roof-raising instrumentals. Their concerts combine high-energy, upbeat bluegrass/roots-inspired compositions, beautiful ballads with soaring vocals and heartfelt lyrics, and groovy feel-good songs. The Pasedena Star calls them “storytellers in the fireside tradition.”

“…emotive Joan Baez-inspired vocals, award-winning fiddle playing, head-spinning mandolin
and guitar picking, and velvety, close harmonies.” _Music News Nashville

Stephanie Bettman is at the least a triple threat. An accomplished writer, singer, and fiddler: her lyrics are infused with wit and wisdom, poetry and insight. Vocally she draws comparison to the soaring soprano of Joan Baez and the plaintive emotion of Emmylou Harris. Meanwhile, her fiddling, which combines elements of bluegrass and jazz, is inspired by such masters as Stephane Grappelli, Byron Berline and Johnny Gimble. She is a former actress and trapeze artist.

Luke Halpin is a master of the guitar and the mandolin, impressive on fiddle, banjo, and nearly anything he picks up. Halpin draws inspiration from the likes of Sam Bush, Mark O’Connor and Tony Rice and holds his own in comparison. Halpin has a long history in the music biz, having shared the stage with the likes of Merle Haggard, Lone Star and The Steve Miller Band.
