For all the accolades she?s received ? a singer/songwriter award from Lawrence and increased demand to perform across the state, etc. ? Damaris Kunkler still isn?t comfortable calling herself a genuine singer/songwriter.
You could have fooled the large crowd that gathered at Iola?s Timeout Tavern last weekend to celebrate the launch of Kunkler?s debut, self-published CD, ?Come Sit By My Fire,? which consists of tunes and ballads she?s written over the past 20 years or so.
The capacity crowd hooted and hollered to each of Kunkler?s songs, all of which she performed solo on her acoustic guitar.
