Becky Kapell & Friends (4th Wednesdays monthly) w/special guest Doug Otto


What’s Happening?

Minnesota songwriter and singer Becky Kapell picked up her teenage son’s guitar on a whim and began teaching herself to play at the tender age of 42. With no intention of writing songs, as she taught herself basic chords, melodies began to emerge and then somewhat magically lyrics attached themselves to the melodies. She recorded 12 of those songs with old friends in Portland, Oregon (where Becky lived as a young adult), for her first record For Now, released in 2012. Based on the strength of that recording, Becky caught the attention of respected Minnesota musician/guitar player Paul Bergen and as the two began playing together her song-writing morphed from the folkier sound of her first record to the more guitar-driven sound of her 2018 release, That Certain Ache. They have continued to play and record together along with Becky’s band The Fat 6 which often includes various luminaries from the Minnesota music world.

“Otto’s obvious talent exceeded all of the glowing praise I’d been hearing. It pleases me to no end to be reminded again that Minneapolis is home to abundant musical prowess.”- Charlie Broyles of the Star Tribune
