Musician KENDL WINTER will be performing live songs from the soundtrack.
A traveler, a dreamer, and a banjo pickin’ sweetheart from Arkansas, Kendl Winter sprouts alfalfa beans in mason jars in the back of her tour van and spreads her songs across the country Johnny Appleseed style. Her voice is beautifully unique and bold, and her songs are thoughtfully poetic and rooted deep within her experience. Previously of the Blackberry Bushes String band, she has branched off and out and her solo work is even more captivating and mesmerizing. Stemming from an old-time and bluegrass bend, Kendl has joined My Fool Heart's Summer 2013 Tour as a featured solo performer.
