Karen Whitman and Rick Pantell, Woodstock musicians, have been a singer-songwriter duo since 1995. They are best known for their CD “Chicken Fat Pudding and Other Delights” and have performed at festivals (including Clearwater) and coffeehouses throughout the Hudson Valley and Tri-state area. Their original songs are narrative, thoughtful and personal, with a thread of humor throughout their unique performances, with Rick’s creative finger picking and Karen’s resonant, expressive voice keep audiences engaged and uplifted. Their songs have been featured on WAMC, WKZE and WDST radio. They are also excellent improvisers, which is what they do with the New Chance ensemble with poets Bruce Weber and Joanne Pagano Weber, accompanying and enhancing the spoken word.
