COME FOR THE FOOD, STAY FOR THE MUSIC.

LASKA

(FORMERLY THE MORTON SISTERS)

FRI, JULY 14, 7PM

MODERN FOLK, AMERICANA & INDIE POP

LASKA (formerly The Morton Sisters) from Eau Claire, WI provide the perfect soundtrack for embracing the beauty in pain. Songwriting sisters Hannah Mae, Bex and Mookie weave influences of Alternative, Americana and Desert Rock with raw emotion in their songs. They are all confident vocalists knowing what each will bring to the table to sing lead, but also support one another with beautifully hard-hitting harmonies. Topping off the harmonic sheen is an instrumental arsenal including violin, guitar, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, and cello. Combine this with an un-apologetic rhythm section in tow, including Evan Middlesworth on electric guitar, Zach Brawford on drums, and Ethan Schmidt on Bass, and the whole of this band is far greater than the sum of its parts.

THE GREG GILBERTSON BAND

SAT, JULY 15, 7PM

Effortlessly producing texturally exciting instrumental guitar pieces as vibrant as a Monet, Greg Gilbertson has continued in the traditional acoustic fingerstyle guitar made prominent by artists Michael Hedges and Leo Kottke. Communicating deep abstract emotions via his guitar he leaves enough room for your imagination to soar.

Gilbertson enjoys keeping his audience off balance. "I love how the same tune can grab people differently," he says. "You write a song, but you never really own it. You just release it and let it do its thing. Songs are like kids; you raise them more than you create them." With his genuinely pragmatic "It'll be okay" approach to life, he will smile disarmingly right before launching into a song so packed with evocative melodies and layered with lyrics that it invites intense contemplation and reflection. 

Listeners who are only vaguely expecting to be entertained will have to reorganize their thoughts, pull their jaws closed, and pay attention.  As is true of all absorbing music, the world is brought into sharp focus and then melts away.
