Smith Folk Duo to Perform Nearby on First Tour

View a Campus Camera video of Hannah & Maggie playing "Things We'll Never Know."

Since their song “Things We’ll Never Know” won first place in last year’s Lilith Local Talent Search (New York region), folk singers/songwriters Hannah Hickok ’11 and Maggie Kraus ’12 haven’t looked back.

The duo released their debut album, Fine Being Here, earlier this year and are embarking on their first tour this week to promote the album, hitting 10 cities throughout the Northeast in a two-week span. The tour begins Friday, Aug. 19, in Maplewood, N.J. and ends on September 1 at The Barn at Hamilton College, Clinton, N.Y.

As part of the tour, Hannah & Maggie, as they call themselves, will perform near Smith when they take the stage of the Cellar Bar in Easthampton on Friday, Aug. 26, sharing the bill with Northampton band The Sun Parade.

Stops in New York City, Mystic, Conn., Providence, R.I., Burlington, Vt., and Ithaca, N.Y., will round out the tour.

“Hopefully, this will be our first of many tours as a duo,” says Maggie, who will return to Smith for her final year following the tour. Since graduating in May, Hannah has relocated to Manhattan, N.Y.

Hannah & Maggie began when the two Sessions House mates got together to play guitar and sing. They found that their voices and musical sensibilities meshed well and wrote their first song together, “Things We’ll Never Know.”

Hannah & Maggie plan to get to work on a second album in the coming year. Watch for them on tour again next year to promote that album. Meanwhile, catch them in Easthampton Aug. 26.
