Chalkboard Poets is a fiddle-based Indie folk-rock band out of Austin, Texas. Old Settler's Youth Talent winner (2012) Kimberly Zielnicki (vocals, fiddle, ukulele, piano, bass) teams up with performer, composer, and arranger Chris E. Peterson (vocals, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, percussion) and Taylor Turner (upright bass) to perform original material and unique covers ranging from traditional fiddle tunes to pop. Kimberly and Chris have performed in hundreds of shows with various bands, including Austin favorite Lost & Nameless, with whom they toured nationally and recorded several albums. Chalkboard Poets performs as a duo or trio.
"From old time fiddle sounds to jazz and even a little classical feel ... the Chalkboard Poets offer a great vibe and great listening experience."
- Lloyd Maines Music producer and musician
