Notable Exceptions is a tidy bundle of energy, talent, experience, and musical joy. The Notable Exceptions sound is a potpourri of Folk, Western, and novelty tunes. From house concerts to concert halls, Judy Coder and Jennifer Epps are known in the world of western music for their finely crafted vocal harmony. Their original tunes are lighthearted and conversational. For accompaniment, Judy's tasteful rhythm guitar is right on the button; Jennifer sweetens the sound with tidbits of harmonica, rhythm instruments, flutes and whistles. The result is fun, fresh, bold Americana. This delightful pair has been recognized by the International Western Music Association with the 2017 Marilyn Tuttle “Best of the Best” Harmony Award, and the 2015 Harmony Duo of the Year Award.
From their home “way out west where the sun sinks low,” these troubadours live on the road, touring for 6 months of the year. Judy, a classically trained composer, is currently engaged in her first masterwork: a full-length folk opera with a western theme. Notable Exceptions is driven by a commitment to spreading joy and laughter through song. Follow their adventures on Facebook, and catch them live when they blast through your town. You’re in for "Rootin' Tootin', Nose-Flutin' Fun!"
