The 1770 Mennonite Meetinghouse is a great space to gather for live music. Local alt-country singer-songwriter Dawn Hiatt (www.dawnhiattmusic.com) hosts featured performers for intimate, acoustic gatherings in the historic 1770 Germantown Mennonite Meetinghouse. January's music night will feature two local artists - Dawn Hiatt + Sarah Napolitan with Matt Gordon. Free admission - donations gratefully accepted About the Artists: DAWN HIATT (http://www.dawnhiattmusic.com/) Dawn Hiatt presents a unique blend of classic Nashville influences chamber pop, with spikes of alt-country, folk-rock Tin Pan Alley in between. The production hints of Aimee Mann, while its ebb and tide of grit and kitsch suggest a close kinship with Neko Case or Andrew Bird. Born to a family of musicians and race car drivers, Dawn Hiatt grew up singing in church in Western New York, and her family soon relocated to the farmlands of Bridgeton, N.J., in Cumberland County. Her experiences far from home caring for orphans in Guatemala, teaching inner city students in New York, touring all over America as a young songwriter have been instrumental in her development as an artist. Hiatt was named winner of the Philadelphia Songwriters Project Songwriting Contest in both 2008 and 2009 the only artist who has won it twice! SARAH NAPOLITAN with Matt Gordon (http://www.reverbnation.com/sarahnapolitan) Sarah Napolitan is a singer-songwriter based in Philadelphia, PA. Her music combines the vulnerability of the human experience with openness and honesty, simultaneously celebrating and grieving anything from nature to love. Sarah strives to create intimacy with her audience through a bared soul and striking lyrics. She is an artist who writes and performs not to be well-known, but to be known. She also performs with The Turnips, a heartfelt and footstompin extreme folk band who has played the Philadelphia Folk Festival, and also has performed multiple times on WXPN Gene Shays Folk Show.
