On Saturday, February 20 at 7pm, DCA will present a coffeehouse concert in the Fireside Lobby by Deathfolk, the popular Door County duo made up of Jess Holland and Nick Hoover. Brought together by their love of dark folk songs, Holland and Hoover began playing as a duo in 2010.

In their live performances, Deathfolk presents a mix of original and cover songs, all delivered with their trademark pure, old-fashioned vocals.
The Deathfolk concert is sponsored by the Cordon Family Foundation; lodging is provided by Homestead Suites. Refreshments from Base Camp Coffee Shop will be available for purchase. Tickets are $15 or $10 for students (all seats are general admission).
