HOPE GRIFFIN DUO w/ Anna P and Matthew Kopecky

  • Uncommon Ground (Lakeview) 3800 North Clark Street Chicago, IL, 60613 United States (map)


“In her capable hands, [the guitar] becomes an expression of longing, love, sorrow, joy and heartache, and when her duo partner, Jamie Leigh, adds in cello parts… the results are transcendent ones.”- Steve Wildsmith, The Daily Times 

The Hope Griffin Duo invites you to be a part of their musical journey down roads both familiar and new. Alaska-born singer-songwriter Hope Griffin is on the road in 2018, promoting her latest full length album release "Where the Soil & the Stars Meet." She is joined by long-term bandmate and remarkably talented cellist Jamie Leigh Bennett to offer you a show that soulfully fuses acoustic guitar, cello, and angelic harmonies together to provide their own stirring Folk/Americana originals. Well known for her free spirited stage presence, velvety vocals, and heart wrenching ballads, this talented act is ready to share with you own, fresh contributions to the singer-songwriter conversation. This show is part of the duo's first East Central tour of the US.


Anna P is a singer-songwriter from Chicago, IL. With her honest lyrics, haunting melodies, and crystal-clear voice, she is a token “sad girl” of the local Chicago music scene. Playing music for over half her life, but only starting real public performances in 2017, she is determined to make up for lost time and make her voice heard in every corner of the city and beyond.


Matthew Kopecky is a singer-songwriter from the Chicago suburbs. In 2011 he put out his first record under the name 'Oblio And Arrow'. Since then, he's put together a group around the project and performs both with a full band and as a solo act. In 2017 Oblio And Arrow released their second album Steps, available for download and streaming wherever you listen to music!
