Americana folk duo Bettman & Halpin comprised of singer/fiddler Stephanie Bettman and multi-instrumentalist Luke Halpin have been wowing critics across the country. Roz Larman, Folkscene radio KPFK Los Angeles said, "Their singing and playing is literally out of this world".
Bettman, a singer with an angelic voice and a magical touch with the fiddle elicits comparisons to such legendary singers as Emmylou Harris, Joan Baez, and Alison Kraus.
Her musical partner Luke Halpin is a renowned multi-instrumentalist singing, playing guitar, mandolin, fiddle, and banjo.
Together, Bettman & Halpin are fast earning a reputation in folk and bluegrass circles for mesmerizing performances filled with irresistible lyrics, transcendent harmonies and roof-raising instrumentals.
