First Wednesdays with Vicky Emerson Band featuring special guest Ben Cook-Feltz (Singer Songwriter) $8
Wednesday, July 3 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Americana singer/songwriter, Vicky Emerson, has been heralded by the Minneapolis Star Tribune and No Depression for her gorgeous, dusky voice and songwriting chops on previous releases but her new album, Steady Heart, which she self-produced, has firmly established her as an essential, strong female voice in Americana music. Emerson tours nationally and has opened for Gregory Alan Isakov, Malcomb Holcombe as a solo artist and Emmylou Harris as The Home Fires. She was raised in rural Wisconsin, has lived in New York City and San Francisco before relocating back to her roots in Minneapolis with her husband to raise her children.
“…one of the pre-eminent independent singer/songwriters working in Americana. Her lyrical acumen is readily apparent for any listener, those unfamiliar with her work and longtime fans alike, but the lean economy of her poetic musings separates her work from performers who might otherwise overdo their desired effect on the audience.” NO DEPRESSION
“The whole record is unflagging and ferocious, but its most triumphant moment comes on the country revenge song “The Reckoning.”” CITY PAGES
