Singer-Songwriter, Kathryn Belle Long and Mickey Abraham have emerged as two of Florida’s most accomplished acoustic performers. As members of Suncoast Emmy award-winning Belle and The Band, Long and Abraham have played their original music at many of the premier Americana/folk festivals in the Southeast and toured the East Coast as far north as Canada. As 2018’s Will McLean Best Florida Song winner, Long is currently at the top of her game as a songwriter. Abraham’s unique approaches to arranging and teaching music have been featured in Bluegrass Unlimited and Flatpicking Guitar Magazine. Together, Long and Abraham combine experience, creativity, and class into emotionally-driven cohesive artistic statements. The award-winning duo is currently recording a full-length concept album entitled “Voices: A Folk Opera.” The project combines elements of Broadway with folk music and includes original characters, locations, storyline, and reoccurring musical themes. Long and Abraham’s talents compliment each other and their work is nothing short of folk music artists.
