Chastity Brown

Gravel Road Touring, a Minneapolis booking collective, presents a night of indie-roots music featuring rising acts Chastity Brown, Actual Wolf, and Barbara Jean.  What began as an in-house booking agency for Minneapolis-based roots act The Pines in 2007 has evolved into a co-operative, artist-run touring agency known for sharing high caliber music with fans around the country.  The folks at Gravel Road believe there is no substitute for live music.  It is a personal and social experience that is vital to building community in this digital age. This inaugural event will showcase the force of Minneapolis’ Americana roots acts currently featured on the Gravel Road roster.

Actual Wolf
There are outlaws, and then there are outlaws. Some practice the pose and cultivate the image, though seldom dirty their soft, bourgeois hands with anything actually outside the law. When they do, it is often despicable, irresponsible or just plain mundane....
Barbara Jean on an old North Shore farm
Barbara Jean grew up immersed in a world of music. Inheriting a musical legacy passed from grandmother to mother to daughter, she honed her early, natural talent for playing the violin to become equally adept playing banjo, fiddle and viola, and along the way...
