Peter Miller (We Are The Willows) - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Peter Miller (We Are The Willows)
Peter Miller is the singer/songwriter from the highly acclaimed band, We Are The Willows. His band has recently recorded their second full-length album, Picture [Portrait], based off of 350 letters written by Peter’s grandfather to his grandmother while he was stationed in the Southwest Pacific during World War II. Their correspondence inspired Peter to explore themes of family, separation, life, death, and identity in a time of national and personal crisis. The songs communicate complex ideas delivered with pop-sensible charm. His grandmother loves this album. You just might too.

We Are The Willows have received kind words from PASTE Magazine, Daytrotter, Magnet Magazine, 89.3 The Current, City Pages, and VitaMN. They continue to have fun playing their music throughout Minnesota, the Midwest, and the wide world beyond. They hope to be the first band to perform on the moon.
Ben Lubeck - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Ben Lubeck
Ben Lubeck is a songwriter based in Minneapolis. He is a founding member ofFarewell Milwaukee and has released three records with the band. Rented Rooms is Ben's first solo effort and will be available everywhere on February, 26th.

The album was recorded with Brad Bivens in-between Ben's schedule with Farewell Milwaukee. Ben tracked the vocals and guitar live then augmented each song with contributions from notable Twin City musicians including Ben Kyle, Adam Levy, Jacob Hanson, Alex Young, and many more.

The album was conceived as an act of reconciliation toward's Ben's father, while contemplating his own new found status as a dad.
Brianna Lane - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Brianna Lane
"Poised, ambitious, a soul-singer of the first order, and an accomplished guitarist." - Jim Walsh (Star Tribune Minneapolis, MN)
Hailing from the song-rich soil of Minneapolis, Brianna Lane is the latest in a deluge of compelling songwriters flooding the region. Lane’s vocals are both confidant and fragile, running parallels to Mindy Smith or a close confidant to Americana veteran Patty Griffin.

Brianna Lane is a gifted singer/songwriter in true Americana form. She writes and performs on an acoustic guitar as well as a banjo, crafting songs that are clear-eyed and pure—with an integrity derived from her gritty, unflinching emotional honesty. Jim Walsh recently wrote that Brianna Lane is "She’s poised, ambitious, a great writer, a soul singer of the first order, and an accomplished guitarist.” (Star Tribune) Lane grew up in Minnesota and still calls Minneapolis home. In her eight years of touring Lane has shared the stage with Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Colin Hay, Billy Bragg, Dar Williams, Patty Larkin, The Weepies, Jennifer Nettles (of Sugarland), and numerous other well seasoned musicians. She has also shared powerhouse, leg-powered bicycle tours with Signature Sounds’ artist Peter Mulvey. Lane has released four full length solo records and one duo EP with Cahalen Morrison as “Harbor Collective”. Her latest full-length CD is entitled “The Navigators Club”.

Behind Lane’s beguiling smile lies a heart that has had its share of heartache where songs like “In My Bones” and “Company” draw their inspiration. Her stories oscillate between a sense of urgency and resolve while seeking a tranquil balance. Brianna Lane is proof that talent, ambition, and honesty still mean something in today’s hyper-stylized and manipulated musical landscape.
John Louis - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
John Louis
John Louis is a Minneapolis-based singer-songwriter and guitarist who crafts twangy folk songs about love, loss, living and nostalgia.

“I think of my music as tonic from the chaos and swirl. Music for the road, or the kind of songs you sing with friends around the fire,” said Louis. His songs evoke hope and longing, change and regret, love and death, lost and found, and kindness.

Collectively, Louis says he’s been influenced by all of the music he has ever heard, but is especially fond of that long list of singer-songwriters that begins with Kris, Townes, Lucinda, Bob, Waylon, and Gram. “I am drawn to songwriters who are serious about their craft, but who make themselves vulnerable -- who from time to time put big pieces of their heart and soul into their songs.“ It is through these influences that John has put big pieces of his own heart and soul into his songs.
While Louis has written songs and played music with other musicians for many years, the release of Drift in September 2015 marked his first record as a solo singer/songwriter. Louis wrote the bulk of Drift in late 2013 and 2014. The album was recorded and mixed at Underwood Studio in Minneapolis with producer Mark Stockert and co-producer Brianna Lane. Mastering was performed by Pete Lyman of Infrasonic Mastering in Los Angeles.

For Drift, Louis pulled together some of the most gifted musicians around: Mike “Razz” Russell (fiddle, mandolin, guitar); Jimmy Johnson (pedal steel); Brianna Lane (banjo, vocals); Michelle Kinney (cello); Jed Germond (fiddle); Andy Carroll (bass); and Kris Schaefer (drums). Louis provides lead vocals and guitar to every track. The album also features gorgeous vocals by notable musicians Page Burkum and Jack Torrey (Cactus Blossoms), and Ben Kyle (Romantica).

When not playing music or writing songs, John can most often be found on a bike or listening to other musicians around town.
The Last Jackson - (Set time: 6:00 PM)
The Last Jackson
Residing in the city of Minneapolis,Taylor Lorell, Nate Jackson, Ben Metzger, and August Ogren-dehn combine the thumping drive of Americana fingerpicking and foot-stompin' swingin' blues, with sweet and gritty harmonies.
Hamdog - (Set time: 5:00 PM)
HamDog is a group of Minnesota based friends and musicians who play regularly in someone’s living room, usually the Garrison’s. Not to be confused with the southern Hamdog, which is a hot dog wrapped in a beef patty that's deep fried, covered with chili, cheese and onions, and served on a hoagie bun topped with a fried egg and two fistfuls of fries. We are the northern equivalent put to music.
