In the Round- 4 Part Harmony Featuring: Annie Fitzgerald, Sarah Morris, Jillian Rae, & Vicky Emerson (Singer Songwriter) $10

Thursday, March 5 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Annie Fitzgerald‘s music has been described as “a blend of Tori Amos’ intellectual appeal, Sarah McLachlan’s mystical charm and Edie Brickell’s baroque spirit” (Jamsphere). Honored by the Songwriters Hall of Fame as an artist to watch, Fitzgerald released her second album You & Me & the Sun in June 2018 to wide acclaim. Produced by Danny O’Brien (The Farewell Circuit, Dem Yuut), the album finds Fitzgerald joining gifted Minneapolis musicians and shaping a textured folk-pop sound mixed with the raw vitality of rock-and-roll. You & Me & the Sun explores connection, vulnerability, love, and sparks in the span of time navigating the balance between motherhood & her life as a songwriter.  Since her first release In Good Time, Fitzgerald spent time a part of the NYC Indie scene, started a family, and welcomed a move back to her home state of MN and a newfound sense of space to create. She’s currently working on new material, and continues to tour nationally.

2018 Kerrville New Folk winner Sarah Morris‘ endearingly honest, expertly penned songs deliberately miss the forest for the trees. Armed with a poignantly relatable rainy day ache in her sunlit voice, she weaves a winding path of masterful storytelling and timeless Americana melody that invites audiences to join her in celebrating the magic of our everyday minutia. Whether solo, backed by her long-time band The Sometimes Guys, or as half of duo The Home Fires, her playful-hearted presence is both captivating and contagious.  Chris Riemenschneider of the Star Tribune notes: “Rootsy singer Sarah Morris offers a Norah Jones-like approach to Americana, smoothing overs its rough edges with a butter-velvety voice and an intimate songwriting style.”   Her fifth full-length album, All Mine, is scheduled for release in February 2020.

 

Jillian Rae is a singer, songwriter, & multi-instrumentalist from Minneapolis, MN. Having cultivated a reputation as the go-to violin accompanist for dozens of bluegrass, rock, and pop bands (including The Okee Dokee Brothers, Corpse Reviver, Adam Levy, Brian Just, and Steve Kaul & the Brass Kings) Rae planted her own flag in the musical landscape with her first solo release, Heartbeat, in 2013. Rae’s songwriting is not easily pigeonholed, and neither is her playing. You can find her playing country fiddle on one tune, rock guitar on the next, or driving her violin through synthy guitar effects on another. Her latest full length record, “I can’t be the one you want me to be,” was released in May/2019 & can be found online.

Vicky Emerson, has been heralded by the Minneapolis Star Tribune for her gorgeous, dusky voice and songwriting chops on previous releases but her new album, Steady Heart, which she self-produced, firmly established her as an essential, strong female voice in Americana music. Steady Heart, has received critical acclaim, helping her to rise to #4 on the European Americana Charts, #52 on the US Americana Album Chart and #34 on the Americana Singles Chart with her hit, “The Reckoning.” No Depression raved that she is “…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.” Vicky is based in Minneapolis and continues to tour on a national basis and has opened for Emerson has opened for Gregory Alan Isakov, Amanda Shires, Eliza Gilkyson, Brewer & Shipley, Malcomb Holcombe and Brent Cobb.
