The Sirens of South Austin
The Sirens of South Austin
Sirens of South Austin is the collaboration of award-winning
Austin artists Rebecca Loebe, BettySoo, and Grace Pettis. In addition to shared Southern roots (Georgia, Texas, and Alabama,
respectively), the Sirens are award-winning songwriters and
performers in their own right. All three are Kerrville New Folk
Songwriting Contest winners.  Featuring the songs and stories of
three seasoned troubadours, Sirens is a show like none other.

Dave Dersham
n his 20s, he spent a hot, dry summer working Dornan's chuck wagon beneath the purple of the Grand Tetons; taught Environmental Ed among the ponderosa pines of the Black Hills; trekked the sage with underserved youth in southern Idaho; and explored the cultures of Belize, Guatemala, and Honduras.

By his 30s, the muse pulled Dave to the luster of the Cambridge folk scene where he completed his first CD, "The Burn of Summer." The album enjoyed regular airtime on folk radio's WUMB, Emerson College's WERS, and produced a finalist selection for Mountain Stage's Emerging Artist competition.

His second album, "Gilding the Lilies" was recorded with the assistance of Lloyd Thayer's unorthodox lap-steele, as well as the shrewd production of Jared Fiske. The CD was released in the fall of 2011 and was distributed internationally. He is currently working on an CD to be released in 2018.
