Zeitgeist New Music from Minneapoli
The Heck Yeah Holler String Band (Amymarie Schmidt, Andy Schmidt, Tim Dennison, Pat Flack & Bob LaMettry) made its radio debut (minus Bob) on The Roadhouse Sept. 11, the evening before kicking off the eighth annual Radio Waves Music Festival Saturday morning.
"Chi-mewinzha" means "A Long Time Ago" in the Ojibwe language. It's also the title of a book of bilingual Ojibwe stories by Leech Lake elder Dorothy Dora Whipple.
There's a new band in town, the Plucked Up String Band, and they stopped by Studio A to chat and share their great original music. The band is Elliott Noyce on mandolin, Will Moore on upright bass, Matt Nesheim on banjo, and Bill Hansen on dobro. You can hear more from the band at Radio Waves, Saturday, Sept. 12, and at Unplugged at North House, Sept. 17.
Local singer/songwriter Joe Paulik's work is heavily influenced by nature and conveys his sense of connectedness to the Earth. He joined Dick and Dave Aug. 21 to talk about his music and play several tunes. You can learn more about Joe and his music here.
