Crankshaft & The Gear Grinders: 6pm
Crankshaft has been pounding the pavement since 2008, developing his own “pork neck” style along the way. A sound heavily rooted in blues, country, swing, rock ‘n’ roll and surf that “could not have been imagined prior to the early punk scene,” as described by Dig In Magazine. Rock solid original lyrics, a dedicated fan base, and his 21st century twist on the American roots is pushing him to the top of the crowded Minneapolis music scene in a hurry. It’s becoming clear to many that Crankshaft is “one of the best and most interesting roots, rock and blues acts playing around town these days.” – Cities 97. (site)
Jeff Ray & The Stakes: 4pm
Jeff Ray, his steel resonator guitar and a foot-stomping board is all you’ll hear when the St. Paul musician plays live and on his latest CD ‘Last Great Winter.’ And that’s all you’ll need. (site)
Charlie Parr: 2pm (Surprise Guest)
Many people play roots music, but few modern musicians live those roots like
Minnesota’s Charlie Parr. Recording since the earliest days of the 21st century, Parr’s heartfelt and plaintive original folk blues and traditional spirituals don’t strive for authenticity: They are authentic. (site)
Body Omara: 12pm
Body Omara is a Twin Cities based trio that performs original compositions combining African influences with jazz sensibilities. What emerges is a sound you can’t hear anywhere else. (site)
