Baltimore's Letitia VanSant has earned a reputation for creating "bonafide
Americana and indie folk with harmonies you can sink your teeth into."
With her distinctively smooth voice, finely crafted lyrics, a gift for
storytelling and a keen insight into the human condition, Letitia VanSant
has been garnering accolades wherever she is heard. She was one of six
winners of the prestigious 2017 Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk award and
was invited to the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival's Emerging Artist Showcase
last year. She won the 2016 Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Contest, and the
Baltimore Sun recognized "Gut it to the Studs," from her most recent album,
as one of "30 Songs that Defined 2017."
The Pioneer Valley is fortunate to have an opportunity to hear this talented
and rising star. Catch Letitia VanSant performing at the March 3 Song &
