Acoustic, Americana and Roots
We have one more week before we bust into some themed coverage each week on The Local Show (fyi: 12/16 - Critics Pick Edition, 12/23 - Seasonal favorites and 12/30 - Local Poll countdown). But we can't slow down just yet!
On this weekend's episode, All Eyes will be the in-studio guest, performing cuts off their debut album Shelf Life.
Gary Hines from The Sounds Of Blackness will also chat with David Campbell about their upcoming annual holiday show at the Guthrie.
And we'll also air clips from the recent Caravan Du Nord excursion up to Red Wing featuring Mason Jennings and Fort Wilson Riot. As if that wasn't enough, we have loads of debuts to get through: Dosh, Heavy Deeds, Usonia and Tickle Torture.
Local stories from this episode:
Nicholas David talks about competing on the Voice, meeting Bill Withers
Caravan Du Nord hit the road again to Red Wing's Sheldon Theater for a rare performance by Mason Jennings and up-and-comers Fort Wilson Riot. Both acts have put out critically acclaimed material over the past several years to help build impressive catalogues.
All Eyes' debut album "Shelf Life" has been in the recording phase for over a year. The quartet has had a mysterious public profile during that time, but the names of the members aren't newcomers to Minnesota. Notably, the band is led by Alicia Wiley, a singer whose previous five albums were done as a solo affair.
