One of the biggest hits of last year’s festival was “A Good Clean High”, which won the best song at the Minnesota Music Awards. The song is a tribute to the late musician Ethan Skelton. In addition to the original songs, they’ll also be performing a few of their favorite cover songs.
Originally a trio, the Farsight’s expanded to include a fifth member. Now, the band has a horn section and a powerful horn section. Their music tells stories that are dark, compelling, and sometimes funny. There are nine thoughtful instrumentals on their album.
Todd Eckart is an acclaimed guitarist and singer. He has spent several years exploring Los Angeles musical communities. When he’s not touring, he spends time performing in local diners and cafes and working in schools and libraries. His musical style combines old-time country, rockabilly, and rock ‘n’ roll. Along with his partner, surf-guitar guru Jimi Cooper, he gets crowds moving with his eclectic performance.
Another band that will be back this year is Keep Aways. Their debut album, Friendship, and Freedom Forever was released in 2012. The band has already recorded an EP and plans to record a psychedelic, 1960s-style album. They are also releasing a box set of outtakes and previously released recordings.
After a yearlong hiatus, the Good Colonels are back. They’re recording a new album and playing regional shows after the album is released. Also, they’ll be participating in the Duluth Does Low showcase at Sacred Heart Music Center.
Another ska/punk act is Hard Feelings. This group was active on the Twin Ports music scene in the mid-2000s. In 2013, the band toured the East Coast and released their full-length vinyl album, Swell. The band also released several tapes this year.
