The Lower 48 CD release with Sky Lion

The Lower 48

The Lower 48 are a group on the move, both figuratively, with their new album titled Where All Maps End continuing the theme of their debut EP Everywhere To Go, and literally, as the fledgling indie folk group moved from Minneapolis to Portland a couple of years back. Now, they make a trip back home to where it all began, and a slightly belated but no less enthusiastic album release celebration for Where All Maps End. With a sound rooted in 60's folk melodies and steeped in sweet harmonies, yet with a contemporary edge to the lyrics, The Lower 48 is a band to catch on the road while you can!

Eau Claire indie folk trio Sky Lion opens.

Red Horse: Eliza Gilkyson, John Gorka and Lucy Kaplansky

All three performers are beloved regulars on the Cedar stage and longtime friends, yet something fresh and vital is generated when Eliza Gilkyson, John Gorka and Lucy Kaplansky come together as Red Horse in this collaborative folk "supergroup" project (album now available on Red House Records). Each of these veteran singer-songwriters takes turn to solo on classics first made famous by the other two members, and on some carefully chosen covers from contemporary songwriters including Neil Young, and traditional sources. The songs you know and love, made new again.
