Chris Kokesh I'm a big fan of Chris Kokesh. First heard her a few years back at Artichoke Music Cafe. Since then I've gotten to spend time with her here in Portland, at theAmericana Songwriter's Camp at the Sister Folk Festival and at the Zig-Zag Mountain Songwriting Camp she and Matt Meighan run. A solid guitarist and an exceptional fiddle player. She a songwriter who can tug at your heart and such a wonderful, warm person. I look forward to the next time I can hear her. Two of my favorites are 'Lucy' and 'Hell Of A Year.'
