Celebration Series: The Songs of Lucinda Williams & Ryan Adams
Celebration Series: The Songs of Lucinda Williams & Ryan Adams
The Celebration Series celebrates singer/songwriters in our midst! Each month we honor a particular singer/songwriter or two by inviting a handful of other performers to play the honoree’s songs onstage. This series, a fundraiser for The Warming House, happens with different honorees and different musicians every month. This month we celebrate Lucinda Williams and birthday boy Ryan Adams. This month's performers are Brad McLemore, Brianna Lane & Greg Neis (duo), Mary Beth Hanson, Jim Walsh, Matthew French, and John Louis! Doors at 7:30, music at 8:00. Suggested donation is $5 - $20, and all proceeds go to support The Warming House, a tax-exempt music listening room.
Brad McLemore
Brad McLemore
A native Texan, Brad McLemore has moved his home base north to Minneapolis. As a sideman for Texas artists such as Sara Hickman and Soul Food Café, McLemore spent a decade touring the country and performing on TV shows such as Austin City Limits and The Tonight Show. Just before relocating, McLemore traded his role as lead guitarist for the singer/songwriter and began playing solo acoustic shows and fronting an electric trio to perform his original music. With songs that search the soul for love, justice and peace of mind, McLemore’s songs have been compared to Ryan Adams, “without the angst…” by one local critic. Blending Americana styles and the best of country, folk and blues into earthy tunes that feature emotionally dynamic guitar.
Brianna Lane
Brianna Lane
Brianna Lane is an Americana singer/songwriter from Minneapolis, MN. She has the voice of a chain-smoking angel, songs that balance hope and despair, and the stage presence of an old friend.

For fans of Gillian Welch, Lucinda Williams, Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin, and Ryan Adams.

“Poised, ambitious, a soul-singer of the first order, and an accomplished guitarist.”
— Jim Walsh (Star Tribune Minneapolis, MN)

Matthew French
Matthew French
Nashville influenced singer-songwriter Matthew French’s music and lyrics catch at the strings of hope hidden within heartache. Guitar in hand, coffee cup nearby; the melody transports and the words tell a story. Our story. A human story. Matthew’s audiences feel themselves reflected in the warmth of his voice. Not strangers, just unmet friends.
John Louis
John Louis
John Louis is a Minneapolis-based singer-songwriter who crafts twangy folk songs about love and loss.

Louis writes to connect the personal with the universal: hope and longing, change and regret, love and death, loneliness and kindness.

For fans of Townes Van Zandt, Patty Griffin, Kris Kristofferson and Lucinda Williams.
