Celebration Series: The Songs of Jason Isbell & Loretta Lynn
The Celebration Series celebrates singer/songwriters in our midst! Each month we honor a particular singer/songwriter or two by inviting a handful of local 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 Jason Isbell and Loretta Lynn! Performers include Laura Hugo, Brad McLemore, Ashleigh Still, John Swardson, Ellie Perleberg, Jeff Krause, Scott Wooldridge and Cody Grimes! 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.
Laura Hugo
Laura Hugo
Laura Hugo is originally from the Navajo Nation but has been calling the Twin Cities her home for the last 7 years. She’ll make you feel the feels with her melodic and catchy tunes about heartbreak. You’ll probably find her frequenting open mics, playing at various Minneapolis music venues and watching others play shows at least 4 days a week. She is planning on releasing her first EP in the summer of 2018.
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.

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."

Jeff Krause
Jeff Krause
Rooted in the tradition of classic Americana & Folk storytelling with a tip of the hat to Blues & Southern Soul, Jeff Krause pairs lyric-forward songs with a guitar style that moves from Acoustic coffee house strums to dusty bar Blues.

Jeff Krause got his start in the midwest as a lead guitar player in the vast and ever growing songwriting culture of the Twin Cities. He says “I'm constantly inspired by the seemingly endless talent harbored in Minneapolis and working to create something worthy of that influence.” Jeff Krause writes original songs that are all too relatable about the lost and found of love with a common thread of the persevering spirit born from the highs and lows of life. Inspired by the lyric writing of greats such as Jason Isbell & John Prine and the acoustic grooves of Amos Lee & Ray LaMontagne, Krause crafts songs that are suited for an intimate acoustic show or a full stage.
Scott Wooldridge
Scott Wooldridge
SCOTT WOOLDRIDGE is a self-described "song and dance man," but as his kids point out, he's only about half right. He has released several albums with the Milwaukee-based Wooldridge Brothers, and one solo album. He lives in Minneapolis and performs acoustic music there. His songs have been featured in movies, television, and tire commercials.
