Music for kids and their adults
Acoustic, Americana and Roots
On this edition of The Local Show, Andrea Swensson stops by to chat with host David Campbell about the Minnesota musicians that were recognized at the GRAMMYs, shares highlights from the Best New Bands showcase at First Avenue, talks about Alan Sparhawk's recent collaboration and Prince's latest battle with the Internet. In the 7 p.m. hour Actual Wolf is joined by the Hanson brothers, Erik Koskinen and Low's Steve Garrington for an in-studio session, David premieres new music from forthcoming Hold Steady record, plus Mary Lucia talks about Bob Mould, our artist of the month.
It's been quite the ride since Eric Pollard released his debut, self-titled album under the name Actual Wolf last fall. He performed tracks off the roots-rock record at The Current's 9th Birthday with an impressive backing band of local artists including brothers Jake (guitar) and Jeremy (drums) Hanson, Erik Koskinen — to whom the record's "vibe" is attributed — and Low's Steve Garrington.
