An easily confused and very shy individual, Charlie Parr has been traveling around singing his songs ever since leaving Austin Minnesota in the 1980's in search of Spider John Koerner, whom he found about 100 miles north at the Viking Bar one Sunday night. The experience changed his life, made him more or less unemployable, and brings us to now: 13 recordings, 250 shows a year or more, 200,000 miles on a well broke in Kia, and a nasty fear of heights. Resonator fueled folk songs from Duluth Minnesota.
Adrian+Meredith spend 150+ dates a year touring the USA and Europe. Their music embodies the spirit of the human story with a nod to punk, the heart of folk, flavor of Polka, and bounce of swing. Their live show will have you on your feet dancing, clapping, and stomping along.
“From extravagance to simple elegance we went, as Kerri Powers took
the stage with nothing but a guitar and a tapping tambourine strapped
to the toe of her boot. Reading about her I assumed she’d be a folk
strummer, but she began to lay down some of the finest country-blues
fingerstyle guitar we’ve had on our stage. It was shades of Rory Block,
Chris Smither and, all the way back, Blind Blake and Gary Davis…On
Top Was A Fascinating, Strong Voice Rich With Barbs And
Prickles…Well Written And Beautifully Sung Stuff.”

There’s just something about Ellis. She is at once funny and wise, thoughtful and uninhibited, and her captivating voice is matched by her uplifting lyrics. If you looked up the definition of open-hearted in the dictionary, you just might find her photo there. Ellis’ performances are transformational; she leaves her audiences better than she finds them, with softened edges & opened hearts.
"If ever there was a feel-good folk musician, this is the woman – somebody who really does send you off feeling better about the world."
