The sounds of folk Americana music infused with bluegrass and jazz will fill the Schmidt Gallery Wendesday as musicians Stephanie Bettman and Luke Halpin stop by for a 6:30 p.m. concert.

The well-traveled duo calls itself Bettman and Halpin and has won numerous competitions, including grand prize winners at So-Cal Live Acoustic Music Competition, winner of Topanga Banjo/Fiddle Contest, and were named in Music Connection's Top 25 New Music Critiques. They have been traveling together since 2008 and describe their music as "up-tempo, down-home fiddlin', soulful sorrowful ballads, and super hooky folk/pop." They create an eclectic sound that is geared toward audiences of all ages.
