    Kristin Andreassen (of Uncle Earl) w/ Jefferson Hamer

    Trio featuring Jefferson Hamer (Session Americana,The Murphy Beds) and Shane Leonard (Field Report) Kristin combines award-winning songwriting and percussive dance in performances that have been heralded “inventive” by the New Yorker and “haunting” by NPR’s Folk Alley. Since coming of age with two of America’s most beloved traditional music ensembles (Uncle Earl and the clogging company Footworks) as well as the "folk noir" songwriting trio Sometymes Why (with Aoife O'Donovan and Ruth Ungar), Kristin has turned her deep knowledge of timeless roots music into a knack for creating original songs with a similar kind of staying power.

    Palaver Strings


    Simple Gifts – East Coast Tour In tumultuous times throughout history, the value of the arts has been called into question. Even as artists, we often doubt ourselves and the worth we bring to society. Yet we know that in our field, we follow our own rules; we are not bound to tell linear or concrete stories. We have the freedom and the responsibility, to think for ourselves and push the boundaries of public thought. As we embark on our tour through a divided country, we ask ourselves what we have to bring to communities as artists. Classical music is so often called irrelevant, its concert-hall audiences out of touch with the rest of modern society. At its best, though, this music has the power to transcend time and place.

    The Pines w/ Builder of the House


    Iowa-born/Minneapolis-based folk rock artists the The Pines have created a loyal following for their lush, layered sound and poetic lyrics inspired by the land and folklore of the American Midwest. Bridging the folk, roots and indie worlds with their modern take on American music, frontmen/songwriters Benson Ramsey and David Huckfelt share a common musical language rooted in the songs and songwriters of their native Iowa, while each bringing a distinct voice and sensibility to a sound that Rolling Stone’s David Fricke dubbed “quietly gripping.” The Pines’ sound balance Ramsey’s ethereal, somberly beautiful songs with Huckfelt’s darkly romantic, cinematic tales for a sweeping sound that evokes the vastness and loneliness of the Great Plains.
