Corpse Reviver is a Twin Cities-based trio that pays homage to Harry Smith’s Anthology of American Folk Music. First compiled and released in 1952 by Folkways Records, the Anthology offers a glimpse into the world of vernacular American music recorded in the 1920s on rare 78 rpm records. Reissued in 1996, the music runs the gamut of musical styles and includes early blues and jug bands, old-time country, cowboy songs, Cajun tunes, fiddle breakdowns, and a wide range of sacred music.
Corpse Reviver (who takes their name from a mid 19th century “hair of the dog” cocktail from New Orleans) strive to put their own stamp on the music while maintaining respect for the older styles.
Mikkel Beckmen (washboard, djembe, and stomp box) has been a fixture on the Twin Cities scene for a number of years; some of the folks he’s played with include the Brass Kings, Charlie Parr, and Lonesome Dan Kase & the Crush Collision Trio. Jillian Rae (fiddle, vocals) grew up on the Iron Range and started playing violin at an early age. She helps run a music school (known as the Music Lab) and plays with a number of local groups. Adam Kiesling (guitar, banjo, and vocals) got his start playing old-time and jug band music in the late 90s, played for local clogging group and Old Time trio the Mill City Grinders, then spent four years as an upright bass player for Pert Near Sandstone.
