Vicky Emerson Band Kickstarter Closing Party with Mother Banjo (Folk/Singer-songwriter) $8

Thursday, April 26, 2018 @ 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.


Featuring Ellen Stanley on banjo and vocals, Mother Banjo is a songwriter originally from New England. Called “an outstanding poet” (Inside Bluegrass), she was a Midwest Finalist for the prestigious Mountain Stage NewSong Contest and has been featured nationally on SiriusXM Radio and CMT.com. She has showcased at South By Southwest (SXSW) and Folk Alliance Conference International and has been touring behind her highly acclaimed albumThe Devil Hasn’t Won, featuring her award-winning band’s lively mix of folk, bluegrass and soulful Americana.
