Kora Feder is a talented, young singer-songwriter multi-instrumentalist who is creating a bright future for herself in the here and now. She was raised on the best of Northern California’s folk scene and, as daughter to Rita Hosking and Sean Feder, it seems that a musical life is in her DNA. And yet, it is by her own efforts and with a style totally her own that Kora Feder’s artistry soars. While in pursuit of a Global Studies degree with a focus on songwriting empowerment in indigenous and migrant communities, Feder spend over two years wielding a backpack and guitar in far off places that include China, India, Thailand, and Italy. In 2017, she graduated and recorded her debut solo EP, “Marigolds”. The set of 5 original songs was met with glowing reviews, described as “a melodic salutation to all that is neglected and forgotten by a world at the mercy of Father Time; the carefully conceived work of a thoroughly engaging and exceptionally capable storyteller” (A Lonely Ghost Burning). Earlier this year, Feder was chosen to perform as a songwriting finalist at both the Kerrville Folk Festival and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. And in just a few years time, this lovely luminary went from being a Strawberry Kid to providing acclaimed accompaniment to the Rita Hosking Trio on the Main Stage, the Big Bear Stage, and at Sunday morning Revival. It’s an especially great pleasure to welcome Kora Feder for her first solo performance on Strawberry’s Main Stage, at this year’s Fall Festival.
