In June 2000 she performed as one of 21 participants (from LA, Chicago, N.Y., Boston, etc.) in the singer-songwriter contest at Eddie''s Attic in Decatur/Atlanta, Georgia. This is the acoustic club where musicians like Ani DiFranco and the Indigo Girls got their start; meike koester was awarded Second Prize.

She has played in Savannah and Macon, Georgia and has performed with such underground legends as Kodac Harrison and Caroline Aiken. In April 2002 meike played the "Atlanta Dogwood Festival" and shared the stage with Kate Campbell, Shawn Mullins and lots of other great local and national musicians.
