Celebration Series: The Songs of The Dixie Chicks & The Rolling Stones
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 The Dixie Chicks & The Rolling Stones. The stellar performers will include Oake & Paine, John Swardson, Scott Wooldridge, Greg Neis & Brianna Lane (duo), Gambler's Daughter, Kim Schneider 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.
Oake & Paine
Oake & Paine
Oake & Paine are an acoustic guitar & vocal duo. Colleen Martin Oake and Lindsay Paine have been making music together for more than 20 years. They perform with various bands in The Twin Cities including their band, The Wreck. Among other projects, Colleen sings back-up with Lolo's Ghost and Lindsay plays guitar with Dizzy Hat. Their music ranges from original material to covers by artists both recognizable and obscure.
Scott Woolridge
Scott Woolridge
Originally from Milwaukee, Scott fronted the early alt-country act the Wooldridge Brothers. While still performing with the band at times he has settled into the Minneapolis music scene and created a new sound, one that features mostly acoustic instruments and Scott’s distinctive, well-worn vocals.

In Scott’s 2015 solo album his acoustic guitar and vocals tell a stories of middle-class meltdowns, coffee shop disconnections, and getting tangled up in social networks. Add in a few love songs and mid-life musings, and the album’s 12 songs presents one man’s recipe for outlasting the blues.
Gambler's Daughter
Gambler's Daughter
Gambler’s Daughter is the musical persona and band of singer/songwriter Jessa Roquet. Roquet’s music blends her poetic lyricism with a rich heritage in folk music, heartfelt rock, and a touch of soulful blues.
John Swardson
John Swardson
"Americana singer songwriter from Minneapolis. Played through the
country from The Bitter End in NYC to Largo in LA. Along the way
opened for many including Gene Ween, Echo and The Bunnymen, and
Sturgill Simpson. I write and play honest songs. Particularly close to
my musical soul are Springsteen, Townes Van Zandt, and Lucinda
Williams."

"A songwriter of uncommon emotional detail, depth, and empathy."

-Jim Walsh, City Pages
John Louis
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.
Brianna Lane
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.
Greg Neis
Greg Neis
Kim Schneider
Kim Schneider
Kim is a singer-songwriter, poet and dancer based in the Twin Cities. Armed with her electric-acoustic guitar, her music is a fusion of indie-pop and soul. Kim brings a stage energy all her own: playful, demanding and interactive. She aims to empower women and so her lyrics are about growing through heartache, finding self-love and coming into ones own as a woman.
