Gravel Road Touring Showcase at The Cedar
Gravel Road Touring, a Minneapolis booking collective, presents a night of indie-roots music featuring rising acts Chastity Brown, Actual Wolf, and Barbara Jean at The Cedar Cultural Center on April 5. What began as an in-house booking agency for Minneapolis-based roots act The Pines in 2007 has evolved into a co-operative, artist-run touring agency known for sharing high caliber music with fans around the country. The folks at Gravel Road believe there is no substitute for live music. It is a personal and social experience that is vital to building community in this digital age. This inaugural event will showcase the force of Minneapolis’ Americana roots acts currently featured on the Gravel Road roster. Doors at 7 p.m. with the music starting at 8 p.m.
"Come Spring Tour" with Chastity Brown
We are pleased to announce the Come Spring Tour with Americana-roots artists Chastity Brown and Barbara Jean. The two performers will cover ground on both Lake Superior’s North and South Shore giving four evening performances in three lakeside communities. Come Spring kicks off on February 28 in Duluth, MN where the two performers will be featured on WDSE Public Television’s The Playlist at 9 p.m. The program will highlight the work of both musicians with live in-studio performances.
Thanks to everyone who made it out to the CD Release shows for The Great Escape in Minneapolis and Duluth. I had a blast meeting new folks, sharing music and catching up with old friends. So much of my life this last year has gone into releasing this album and it felt good to put it out offcially and celebrate with folks.
I had a blast as a guest on NPR’s Mountain Stage Radio Show September 13. Mountain Stage put on two shows in Grand Marais at the North House Folk School and you can listen to a recording of the show here! Trampled By Turtles, Low, and Peter Himmelman also played that night and it was an honor to share the stage with such an excellent group of musicians.
