NEW GLOUCESTER — Antje Duvekot will return once again to the Village Coffeehouse at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 7, at 19 Gloucester Hill Road.

Duvekot is getting ready to release her latest CD, which so far has the working title, Twenty Dollar Leap Year. Funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign, she not only wrote or co-wrote all of the songs on the CD but also self-produced this album.

She solidified her reputation as one of Boston’s top singer-songwriters with her debut album, Big Dream Boulevard, which was produced by Seamus Egan, founder of the Irish supergroup SOLAS, and released on songwriter Ellis Paul’s label.

Her next two albums, New Siberia and the Near Demise of the Highwire Dancer, were produced by Richard Shindell.

“What a blessing to have worked with someone as talented as Antje. With a voice like hers, and songs as good as these, a producer (especially a first-time producer) just tries to get out of the way, to do no harm, and to let the artist speak for herself,” said Shindell.

She has won some of the top songwriting awards including the Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, the prestigious, Kerrville, Texas, “Best New Folk Award” and the Boston Music Award for “Outstanding Folk Act,” three of the top prizes in the singer-songwriter world.

Despite her national and international fame and touring schedule, she continues to come back to the New Gloucester Village Coffeehouse.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Seating is limited and available on a first come, first serve basis. Special refreshments will be served from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Tickets cost $20 at the door.
