ES MAY T A D T FES

8-9

For the past ten years, in late Spring, two river towns have become a meeting point for lovers of new and original music. Musicians from all parts of the Midwest and many cities from across the country have hauled their gear and sung their muse, and following them have been countless talent buyers, agents, photographers, and writers. The festival has been on the dance card of many well-known Midwest musicians, particularly Minneapolis break-out artists in their early days of testing the waters outside the fabled music hotbed of the Minnie-Apple. Lizzo is a household name these days, a Grammy winner, and she played MWMF in 2014 to a crowd of 150-200 people. Other Midwest-based nationally touring bands Horseshoes and Handgrenades, Dead Horses, Them Coulee Boys, People Brothers Band, Bad Bad Hats, Jeremy Messersmith, Heiruspecs, Chastity Brown‌.have all played these late Spring weekends. Children have grown up with the fest. High school graduates this year would have been in 2nd grade the year the music first sprouted all across the city. Through our educational programming hundreds of children have been exposed to live music and a co-hort of students, as part of Teen Press, have rubbed shoulders and written and vlogged about the musicians. Cool and new this year is our focus on Mental Health and Wellness. Through partnerships with regional and local organizations we are shining a light in numerous ways. Live Music. It is a palpable thing, the joy amongst the musicians, the joy of the audience. Joy. Emotional Release. Dancing. You need this right now. VIRTUALLY, BUT NOT ALONE.

Psych Blues - Nashville, TN

Americana/Old-Time - Nashville, TN

Saturday May 9 / 7:00 PM

Saturday May 9 / 7:45 PM

The Minks are Nashville’s “psychedelic-bloos” band, heavy on the rock and roll. We’re talking low-down, all the way, purse-lipped, eyes-shut, head-whirling kind of rock and roll. The band’s palpable sound has roots in every music fan’s top ten—from Lou to Patti to Creedence to Hank. Mixed with raw, jangly instrumentation and soulful saccharine vocals, it’s as much a throwback as it is an answer to the often overlooked underbelly of Nashville’s rock and roll scene.

Born from the dark, rich soil of West Virginia, raised in the clear, hopscented country air, Sierra Ferrell cut her teeth on the rail lines, truck stops, street corners, and dingy, dimly lit listening rooms all across the land, belting out her old-time melodies, a sorcery, drawing her patrons, ever more deeply, into her animated tapestry of forlorn, star-crossed love, of longing, poverty, of suffering and triumph, encompassing that irreconcilable thrum of the human spirit and all the complexities of emotion that come with it.

An easily confused and very shy individual, Charlie Parr has been traveling around singing his songs ever since leaving Austin Minnesota in the 1980's in search of Spider John Koerner, whom he found about 100 miles north at the Viking Bar one Sunday night. The experience changed his life, made him more or less unemployable, and brings us to now: 13 recordings, 250 shows a year or more, 200,000 miles on a well broke in Kia, and a nasty fear of heights. Resonator fueled folk songs from Duluth Minnesota.

R&B/Rock - Minneapolis, MN

Saturday May 9 / 8:45 PM Kendl Winter, born in Arkansas, moved to Olympia, Washington after high school, drawn to the evergreen forests and the lively and thriving music scene. She put three solo records out on Olympia’s indie label, K Records, and performed in nationally-touring northwest string bands before beginning The Lowest Pair in 2013 with Palmer T. Lee. Palmer built his first banjo when he was 19 from pieces he serendipitously inherited. Shortly after deciding songwriting would be the most effective and enjoyable medium for his musings, he began cutting his teeth fronting Minneapolis string bands and touring the midwest festival circuit, which is where he and Kendl first met, on the banks of the Mississippi River.

Saturday May 9 / 10:30 PM Mae Simpson is pure energy and soul. 2019’s Best New Band, according to City Pages readers, Mae hails originally from South Carolina, and has a huge voice and stage presence - drawing comparisons to “Janis Joplin and Ella Fitzgerald, with the rasp of Joan Jett.” Her band helps her showcase a broad collection of original music that refuses to fall neatly into a single genre - blistering funk and dance music, soul and blues — bringing the crowd to their feet every time.

Saturday May 9 / 9:30 PM King Pari is a Minneapolis based lo-fi R&B group made up of Cameron Kinghorn (Nooky Jones, Black Market Brass) and Joe Paris Christensen (PHO, Velvet Negroni). The group was formed in the Spring of 2019 after Christensen sent Kinghorn demos recorded on a Tascam 388. The duo started writing together soon afterward, stumbling on a sound that makes a nod to 80s Minneapolis sound and dance music covered in a thick layer of psychedelia. Throughout 2019 King Pari finished their debut EP, produced, engineered, and mixed by Kinghorn and Christensen in Christensen’s bedroom. The EP is set to be released in 2020 accompanied by an animation by Jake Huffcutt.

Friday May 8 / 4:45 PM Mainstays of the Minneapolis music scene since 2008, Farewell Milwaukee embraces the role that their Midwestern towns have played in shaping them artistically, garnering them fans through their authentic lyrics, lush vocal harmonies, and an honest sincerity at live shows. It is because of this, they have gathered accolades from local and national press, landed a song placement on major-network TV, opened for the Lumineers (among others), and are featured on compilations alongside Mumford & Sons, Adele and Amos Lee.

MISS MYRA & THE MOONSHINERS

Saturday May 9 / 2:00 PM

Old-time/Jazz/Blues - Mpls, MN

Katy Vernon grew up in London, England and has been writing and singing as long as she can remember. Seeking a new way to find her voice led a singer of sad songs to a happy instrument. Katy always poured herself into her lyrics but sometimes found it difficult to share some of her most personal subject matter with an audience. Despite her inclination towards the melancholy, Katy has always been a natural entertainer. Finding that balance of musicality and expression led her to the ukulele. Not simply as a novelty toy or even as an increasingly popular jam band instrument, this little Hawaiian guitar opened up Katy's songwriting and allowed her to take herself a little less seriously and in turn got her taking her music career a lot more seriously.

Friday May 8 / 7:45 PM Myra Joan "The Boss" Burnette is a threat on every level. Her golden voice will bring you from rock bottom to ecstasy and back while her driving guitar rhythm holds the boys in the band together. If you let her near a piano, you'll hear virtuosity from ragtime to Lizst. She is known for abandoning the stage to tear up the dance floor, and is a devotee of lindy hop, charleston, and blues. Oh, and she plays clarinet. And composes. Stop it Miss Myra, leave some for the rest of us.

Saturday May 9 / 11:15 PM New Orleans-born quintet, Stoop Kids, has created a psychedelic conglomeration of genres that both honors and reinvents the classic sounds of hip-hop, doo wop, jazz, and surf-rock. Stoop Kids’ impressive touring résumé includes supporting slots for Galactic and St. Paul and the Broken Bones.

THE MEDIUM

Psych-Pop - Nashville, TN

Friday May 8 / 11:00 PM The Nashville four-piece The Medium, have spent the last few years playing live and honing their sound, a kind of psych-pop that draws from the best of the ‘60s and ‘70s. Often showing both their sense of humor and their honest introspection about life and relationships in their music, it’s obvious the band simply likes to have a good time.

The Nunnery is a solo act of Sarah Elstran. Creating melding meditative, lush soundscapes with layered vocal loops and catchy hooks. More of an experience than just a sound, The Nunnery's somewhat-improvised performances are informed by the spaces in which they occur, and her live shows often incorporate other forms of art such as live visual projections.

Friday May 8 / 9:45 PM

Friday May 8 / 5:00 PM

Founded in Knoxville, TN, Three Star Revival is serving up a big ol' helping of southern-fried funk. Meaningful lyrics, catchy melodies, and extended improvisational sections take the listener across a plethora of genres including soul/ r&b/jazz/funk and tie it all together through a high energy rock show that will keep you movin’.

Bad Posture Club is the tight duo Maren Day and Morgan Kavanagh. Together they craft original music and reinterpret traditional folk songs. Before relocating to the Twin Cities, they grew up in the Pacific Northwest and have been playing music together since in 2013. With voices, banjo, and guitar, they invite intimacy and togetherness in song.

SpaceHeaters is an original horn heavy funk-rock band, formed in the driftless valley with the sole mission of delivering tasty grooves and unparalleled performance.

Queen Drea Voice-Loops N Effects creates conceptual soundscapes. By applying a poetic and often metaphorical language to her lyrics and compositions, she tries to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way and likes to involve the audience in conversation as they accompany her on her musical journey.

ELEGANZA

Rock - Duluth, MN

Rock-n-Roll - Minneapolis, MN

Friday May 8 / 8:30 PM

Friday May 8 / 8:45 PM

The [Brothers Burn Mountain] are a duo of electric guitar and drums playing blues-infused music, like The Black Keys but different. Swirling harmonies are set atop fast rhythms, drums are synced up or pulled perfectly away from guitar riffs--it's tight but not stiff, locked but not robotic. Seeing them play is definitely a hypnotic treat.

Eleganza! is anything it wants to be....it has been simmered, stirred, shaked, stewed, suckled, and sucked in by the almighty Rock and Roll! At this point in their lifespan, they are noted for both being simultaneously wise, and still stupid “veterans” of rock and roll. The band features luminaries of all sorts---Bar Owner, a Hair Stylist, a Game of Thrones Blacksmith, a BBC Peel Session, and Drummer Extraordinaire! In the words of Doug Anderson, they’re “smoking and drinking, and God knows what---taking whatever it takes.”

Luke Callen is a hard-driving, finger-style guitar picker originally from the small river town of La Crosse, WI-in the heart of the Driftless region. Pulling from the traditions of American folk, blues, and country music, Luke has one foot in the past and one foot in the here and now. Echoing the voices of Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Ramblin' Jack Elliot and Townes Van Zandt, Luke crafts songs of people, places, and time in all of its forms.

CARLISLE EVANS PECK & THE LADY'S SLIPPERS Orchestral Pop - Mpls., MN

Saturday May 9 / 7:15 PM Carlisle Evans Peck's music lays out a vivid landscape of human emotion and experience. Traversing terrain as diverse as queerness and ecology, his songs unfold like intricate and heartbreaking mythologies. With the indelible mastery of his band The Lady's Slippers - an eclectic and shapeshifting mix of strings, choral harmonies, electric guitar, and driving percussion - these sagas swirl and soar with a new expansive, raw power. This music is somewhere between a candlelit night at the theater and an ancient sung-epic listeners, expect to be transported.

Dan Israel has never been for the faint of heart. While his tunes overflow with hooks, his lyrics are often downcast to the point of being downright depressing, and his cantankerous, get-off-my-lawn nature gives new meaning to the term "old soul." "Old soul" nothing - sometimes Dan Israel just sounds like a grumpy old man.

Druzy Rose is a seven piece group born in a basement of Minneapolis, Minnesota in November of 2018. Although driven primarily by dreamy lyrics about the life and times of a part time party girl, full time cynic, the band also features high energy performances on alto and tenor saxophone, piano, synth, guitar, bass, production, and drums. Seamlessly combining the genres of bedroom/ dream pop and piano driven indie, Druzy Rose creates music that speaks deeply to the troubled collective human consciousness in a manner that is both charmingly whimsical and brutally raw.

KYM’s early music tastes were shaped by the CDs in her dad’s 2005 Chevy Tahoe: Alicia Keys, Joss Stone and Norah Jones. She picked up guitar in her early teens, selftaught via a Beatles hits guitar book. As a singer and poet, song-writing was a natural evolution.

Shields continues the tradition of American music with a soloperformance that pulls in styles of days-gone-by. Using his National Resonator Guitar or Banjo accompanied by a unique front porch style of foot percussion and harmonica, he uses his voice as an extension of the past. Lou carries a full sound during live performances while sharing stories, thoughts and experiences with the audience. He has toured throughout the United States and Europe for over 8 years and has released 4 full-length albums and 13 EP’s.

Natalie Fideler is a composer and singer-songwriter currently based in Minneapolis, MN. Through the use of colorful harmonies, intricate lyrics, stylistic double-dipping, and cheeky honesty, Fideler seeks to inspire deeper thought and personal reflection via catchy tunes that will leave you dancing and ripping your heart out at the same time.

Rogue the Wolf is a three-piece rock band best described as melodic grunge; with sounds that range from moody acoustic jams to loud angsty 90’s infused rock. Their gritty songwriting and live performance make this band a unique rock-n-roll experience.

Singer-Songwriter - Mpls., MN

After years of solo performances, Minneapolis-based KYM has arrived in a new era. Supported by the booty bopping electric bass lines of Drew d’Lakes and a rotating drummer, KYM’s sound is a fun blend of folk, funk and pop. Her lyrics approach personal experience with wit, humor and authenticity.
