Intimate, dynamic, poetic
Originally hailing from South Africa, we proudly introduce multi award-winning singer, songwriter, poet, writer, painter and actress Karin Hougaard. A house-hold name with Afrikaans speakers in her country of birth with 13 critically acclaimed, trendsetting solo albums to her name, Hougaard moved to the US 11 years ago and now resides in Oak Ridge, North Carolina. She frequently performs in The Netherlands, Belgium and South Africa. Masterfully moving between genres, her powerful voice and performance holds the space between being intimate, dynamic, spontaneous, poetic and literary. This will be Hougaard’s debut appearance in NC, she will be accompanied by Alwyn van Heerden, also a South African expat.
