Vicky Emerson Band | Kari Arnett (Folk/Singer-songwriter) $8

Thursday, March 15 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter, Vicky Emerson, will be joined on
stage with her incredible band for a night of Americana music.

Vicky Emerson was raised in rural Wisconsin, has lived in New York City and San Francisco before relocating back to her roots in Minneapolis to raise her children. She has opened for songwriting luminaries such as Malcolm Holcombe and Gregory Alan Isakov, toured on a national basis and mentors songwriters on touring and career management.

Wake Me When the Wind Dies Down was released on 1/1/2016 and continues to garner critical acclaim on a local and national basis. The Minneapolis Star Tribune said, “Vicky Emerson has voice like a fallen angel that’s as pretty as it is strong, and now she backs it up with growing lyrical depth and richly blue Americana arrangements on her third album, “Wake Me When the Wind Dies Down.” No Depression raved “From its wonderful title, understated cover, tight focus, and great songs, Vicky Emerson’s third album Wake Me When The Wind Dies Down is an all-encompassing musical experience. Forget genre considerations and labels. These are simply great songs. 9 out of 10 stars.” The album reached #58 on the US Americana Charts and #5 on the European Americana Chart.


Based in Minneapolis, MN Americana singer/songwriter Kari Arnett offers up authentic Midwestern feelings and has shared the stage with Paul Thorn, Frazey Ford, Chastity Brown, Michael McDermott, and Laney Jones and The Spirits. Her vocal style has often been compared to Patty Griffin and Lori McKenna with a vulnerable grit as honest as her songs and inhabits the folk-country borderlands. Arnett’s single, “Heavy Heart”, received praise as well as a feature from American Songwriter Magazineas well as other great reviews in The Alternate Root, and Revival Music Magazine. Her debut EP, “Midwestern Skyline”, was released in 2015 and she is working towards releasing a full length album in 2018.
