Kate & CJ

Kate and CJ met 20 years ago, spent 10 years traveling, performing and recording music "all over this land", including many times at Highlands Inn. They've shared the stage with tremendous performers but sharing the joy with a beautiful group of friends, new and old, in a beautiful place, is what they do most happily! Both have a deep reverence for a finely crafted song - you'll hear classics in many genres, originals and perhaps an obscure gem. You will find yourself singing along, playing along, humming, tapping, laughing, smiling, dreaming - sometimes all at once!
