Fredericksburg Songwriters' Showcase Katherine Archer

Born and raised in rural Virginia, Katherine Archer embraced the guitar at the age of 12 and began performing in clubs at the age of 15. The daughter of a general store owner, she spent hours and hours "people watching." At 19 Katherine left music school where she was majoring in classical guitar. With a suitcase in one hand and a guitar in the other she headed West. She fell in love with California and stayed, working in folk music cafes, performing and touring.

Katherine eventually returned to the East by way of New York, where she honed her craft as a songwriter, creating music for film and video as well as writing and performing children's music for the New York school systems. Katherine has toured parts of Europe, the UK and the United States. She has been featured in Fast Folk musical magazine and CD. She took first place in the Rhythm and News songwriting contest, competing with 150 of the Hudson valley's finest musicians. Katherine is a dynamic "live" performer, creating an intimate and powerful bond with her audience. With her trademark wry between-song humor, she weaves a musical journey through love, laughter and tears.
