Biographical Info

Serendipity are Kacey and Cody
Stephensen and Emily Schoof, a trio of young musicians hailing from
Adelaide. As solo artists they were performing for years before
meeting at the Fleurieu Folk Festival in 2012. They now have many
performances to add to their portfolio as Serendipity and are starting
to gain recognition nationally for their talents. They recently
represented S.A. in the Youth Showcase at the National Folk Festival
in Canberra 2014. Here they were then selected as one of the top three
acts to receive funding and support from the FAA (Folk Alliance of
Australia). They were also awarded the nationally recognised Lis
Johnston memorial award for vocal excellence whilst at the National
Festival. These three youngsters are making their stamp on the
Australian folk scene. Each draw their musical inspiration from
different genres and eras which can be recognized in their
performance. From Celtic and ancient storytelling to life experiences
and love, creating a new fresh sound. Influence from artists such as
Cat Stevens, Jethro Tull, Xavier Rudd, Eva Cassidy and Vance Joy can
be felt in their song writing. From mixing fast fingers on the Irish
tin whistle seamlessly with gutsy beat boxing, to delightful
guitar/mandolin arrangements and percussion. With goose bump raising
harmonies and emotive lyrics well beyond their years, these young
singer/songwriters are creating their own, individual sound.
As well as performing at many venues including Cafes, Pubs, Wineries,
Festivals etc., some of their more prominent gigs include;
-The Adelaide Fringe Festival 2013
-The National Folk Festival 2014
-Fleurieu Folk Festival 2013, 2014, 2015
-Frances Folk Gathering 2015
-Woodford Folk Festival 2014/2015
-The Blue Mountains Folk Festival 2015,
-The National Folk Festival 2015

Supported acts such as:
-The Alaskan String Band
-Halfway to Forth
-Louise Adams
-The Timbers
-Eric Bogle
They are a talented and
engaging young trio who are emerging as a ‘breath of fresh air’ on
the Australian folk music scene. They demonstrate a knack of being
able to instantly endear themselves to an audience with a youthful
exuberance, passionate playing and a fresh and sometimes quirky
approach to the music. These young singer/songwriters are rapidly
gaining recognition and appreciation in the folk music scene and
beyond.
