KRISTA DETOR | Artist Resident Director
Songwriter, composer, pig whisperer. Krista Detor’s solo albums have reached national and international prominence; she's shared stages with Victor Wooten, Loudon Wainwright, The Neville Brothers, and Joan Armatrading, among many others. Detor has also been involved in several award-winning theatrical collaborations, including the highly-acclaimed 'Wilderness Plots”, which aired on PBS nationwide and earned her recognition by the Indiana Legislature for contributions to the arts.
She was the only American woman invited to BBC's Darwin Songhouse Project; has been commissioned to write musical theatre for The U.S. Dept. of State in New Delhi, India; and has written commissioned choral pieces for several national and international choirs.
In addition, she's been a returning presenter at Stanford University; conducted songwriting seminars, performances and presentations throughout the world, including repeat workshops for The Irish Music Rights Organization; and, in 2017, conducted the first of an ongoing series of cross-cultural, immersive songwriting retreats in Ireland with her friend, lauded literature scholar and journalist, Dr. Rod C. Taylor.
She is proud to have been awarded two artist residencies in 2018, the prestigious Hedgebrook Women's Writing Residence, and Songwriting Works, part of an NEA-funded study of the effect of arts on community.
DAVID WEBER | Technical Director
A graduate of the IU Jacobs School of Music Recording Arts program, David Weber has been recording and producing music since first encountering a four track cassette recorder in the early eighties. A musician first and foremost, he understands very well the need for a relaxed and effortless environment for the process of creating art. Our tinkerer-in-chief, there's nothing Dave can't fix. Don't be surprised if you return to your cottage after a long day's work to discover a new, six foot long window in your living room or a salvaged, antique knocker on your front door.
