Award-winning Christine Havrilla brings her “well-built, catchy, smart tunes” (Upstage Magazine) to audiences everywhere, touring solo and also with the support of her band, Gypsy Fuzz. With a new EP releasing in the spring of 2024, Havrilla continues to create and record with her band and share new music at venues, festivals and house concerts. Last year’s EP and single, “California Night,” is a blend of ’90s guitar and late ’60s harmonies wrapped up in this catchy rocker about sharing the California Coast and its memories. WXPN’s The Key raves, “Rock and roll singer-songwriter Christine Havrilla has been a local favorite since the ’90s, and her high-energy music is kindred is spirit with Sheryl Crow, Grace Potter, Brandi Carlile, and Lucinda Williams!” Havrilla utilizes the soft gritty texture of her vocals to express warmth and honesty listeners quickly embrace as well as her aggressive, raw, trash-style guitar playing and looping. Havrilla has opened for such acts as Brandi Carlile, KT Tunstall, Shawn Colvin, America, Howard Jones and Janis Ian.

Steel Notes Magazine says, “This ambitious Philly native manifests her talent in certain ways that allows her to create eclectic music which will grab your heart and leave a lasting memory.” The Washington Post writes, “(Havrilla’s) songs are intelligent and moving, the arrangements are incisive and colorful, and, best of all, Havrilla consistently comes across as a confident and seasoned performer.” Joining Havrilla in bringing her “Neofunkadelicfolkpoptwangrock” to the Maryland Folk Festival is Salisbury’s own Colleen Clark on electric guitar, a talented musician and prolific songwriter herself. Girl power on guitars is what everyone is talking about when Havrilla and Clark take the stage.
