Kathleen Healy is a hard-working musician & songwriter living on Cape Cod. She draws from her experience of living and raising a family near the beach for many of her songs. Some say saltwater runs through her veins. Kathleen writes from the heart and her honest lyrics and often poignant subject matter lend themselves to the unique quality of her voice.  She admits to being a live music junkie but is currently not seeking treatment for her addiction.

She hosts weekly open mic nights at local venues and thoroughly enjoys supporting the live music scene on Cape Cod and collaborating with other local musicians.  Kathleen has established a monthly singer/songwriter circle which has been visited by many of the Cape’s established and upcoming original artists.  She created the circle as a safe place for musicians to come and share new songs and works in progress and to give and get feedback from their peers.  Many of the regulars to the circle describe the monthly gathering as “New Song Monday” and have told Kathleen it has been a great motivating tool in getting them to write new material.

Kathleen has appeared both as a solo performer and as a member of a folk quartet.  She released her first CD entitled Crossing Lines in 2010 which contains a mix of original & cover tunes and was recorded live at O’Shea’s Olde Inne in West Dennis. Her brand new CD entitled Spark was released in June of 2014.  She also has collaborated with visual artist Moira Swiatkowski to publish her children’s song entitled Clouds as an illustrated book and 12-song CD.

Kim Moberg Music Winter image Kim Moberg was born in Juneau, Alaska, the daughter of a classical pianist mother of Tlingit descent and a US Coast Guard veteran father from Kansas. Music has always been an integral part of Kim’s life and it helped her adjust to the frequent moves associated with growing up in a military family.  At the age of 14, Kim began playing acoustic guitar on a borrowed nylon 6 string, earning lessons by typing lyric and chord sheets for her mother’s guitar students.  A few years later, she purchased a Gibson Epiphone guitar and taught herself to strum and finger pick to her favorite music from the 70’s — James Taylor, Jackson Browne and Carole King, but severe stage fright kept her from pursuing her dream of becoming a performer.

In 2014, after a hiatus from music to raise her 2 daughters, Kim set out to overcome stage fright and can now be heard performing at local concerts, music festivals, fundraisers and open mics on the Cape and South Shore area. She hosts a monthly all- ages Open Mic at the Craigville Coffeehouse, Centerville Library.

Kim draws inspiration from both older and current musical forms of acoustic roots, folk, Americana and country. A finger pick style acoustic guitarist, Kim has an introspective interpretation of songs and is especially drawn to musical stories that tug at feelings of melancholy, heartbreak, and healing. Her original songs speak to reunion, awakening and social consciousness.

In addition to solo performances in Southeastern New England, Kim performs in the acoustic duo Still Willow with her music partner Ric Allendorf.
