Michael Gay, Devin Champlin, + Marshall Tinnermeier $10

Saturday, July 13 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Michael Gay is a country and folk singer-songwriter based in Minneapolis. Over the last 10 years he has established himself through honest and accessible, story-centric songwriting and a whole lot of fingerpicking. A magnetic presence on stage, Michael has occasionally been asked to open shows for national touring acts such as Margo Price, The Mavericks, Andrew Combs, Emily Scott Robinson, Kacy & Clayton and The Cactus Blossoms. Mostly though, he plays in midwest bars.

Devin Champlin is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, luthier and artist from Northwestern Washington. As the frontman/songwriter for Sons Of Rainier (along with bandmates Dean Johnson, Sam Gelband, and Charlie Meyer) he has carved out a unique voice in the indy-folk americana world. Intimate lyrics filled with optimistic existentialism are unhurriedly sung with a woodgrain baritone over fingerpicked guitar, the occasional elbow fiddle or keyboard. Preferring not to lean too hard into any specific genre, he’s satisfied with the umbrella term “folk” as the idea of non-commercial music made by people for the people. He’s spent the better part of two decades studying traditional American musical styles, specifically country blues guitar and old time fiddle tunes, learning from old source recordings, elders in the scene, and the festival/camp community. Along with that cultural musical nerdery he has a prolific output of original music. As an artist with a DIY aesthetic, he uses songcraft as a medium to create imagery- along those lines he also produces animations, videos, paintings, drawings, and prints in tandem with his musical output. Keeping the audience (and himself) on their toes, he rarely plays the same thing twice- sometimes it may seem as if the wheels are about to fall off, but the train stays on the tracks and it’s a satisfying roll. His recordings, solo and with Sons Of Rainier have found their way into the permanent library of hobos, widows, fry cooks, and fancy pants alike. In addition to his 2 releases with Sons Of Rainier he has a handful of self-released full length solo albums out, including one all instrumental album recorded on an Amtrak train, and the most recently released Lonesome Splendor In The Circus Tent (2024).
