PICK OF THE DAY Concerts & Music
In the organizer's words:

Mina Richman | Singer-songwriter Mina Richman, previously known as Mina Schelpmeier, has reduced the spelling error rate on concert posters and named herself after the famous Cher quote "Mom, I am a richman." She sings songs about life as a young woman, about falling in and out of love, or not falling in love at all. Her English lyrics have depth, yet never lose a certain lightness and warmth, which can also be found in her powerful voice. Feminist and queer themes also occupy the musician and are taken up in her music. Mina Richman (vocals, guitar, ukulele) does not shy away from the vulnerability that comes with uninhibited honesty.

Luise Weidenhaas | Born in Meissen, surrounded by her parents' record cabinet - Cat Stevens, the Beatles and Stevie Wonder, her grandmother was a piano teacher, sang opera. Moved to the West. Studied philosophy and German language and literature in Düsseldorf until beginning to write a doctoral thesis on "political song in the GDR". Long before Luise Weidehaas picked up the guitar for the first time, she sang her first solos at school and later in the university choir. Inspired by longer stays in America and Canada, her first "remarkable" (DLF) EP "Swell" was released on her own in 2015. In spring 2020, the highly acclaimed debut album "Shore" followed under their own label Point Reyes records. The majority of their work is created on the road, on long journeys. The songs created there are called "Olivenhaine", "Pazifik" or "Fischerkörbe". Her songs "Prague" and "Night" were each written for the New. Homeland. Sounds compilations of the VUT West. Weidehaas has completed well over 100 concerts, including at SR 2 Kultur Radio's Bistrot Musique, at the DVERS showcase festival in the Netherlands and at the Traumzeit Festival, playing with acts such as Valley Maker, Hannah Epperson and Max Prosa. Since 2021 supported by the artist funding of GEMA and Neustart Kultur as well as the Pop Stipendium, she is currently working on her second EP. She borrowed the stage name Weidehaas from her mother, whose maiden name it is. "I choose words that I like, to situations that move me, paraphrase landscapes, remember encounters - and bring everything into melodic harmony," says Weidehaas according to the guiding principle "Melody is king."
