Event Description

King Cardinal

$5 tickets King Cardinal http://www.kingcardinal.com/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytTN3YEdtdM "King Cardinal, the brainchild of Denver-by-way-of-Chicago songwriter Brennan Mackey, takes straightforward Americana and injects it with cosmic country and delicate folk, not unlike The Cardinals or The Fallen Angels. Backed by drummer Scott Roush, bassist Andrew Porter and pedal steel whiz Ben Waligoske, Mackey and the powerhouse vocalist Texanna Dennie give a highly emotive elegance to these carefully-crafted songs." Marlin Ledin https://marlinledin.bandcamp.com/ "Marlin's music has been featured on WPR and MPR, including Simply Folk, Wisconsin Life, and The Local Show on The Current. My 2012 release "Lake Sounds" has been sampled by various musicians. Marlin studied at the now defunct McNally Smith College of Music in 2003 and currently works at The Weight Room Recording Studio in Washburn, WI." " ...the Ledin collection establishes him as a folk artist with a real ear for production and arrangement, and an identity that feels lived-in." - Duluth News Tribune "As if walking on a moss-covered foot path, Ledin gently thumps a foot drum to accompany his finely crafted lyrics, embroidered guitar playing and silken voice." - The County Journal "... his self-titled release has a much more polished feel though at the heart it remains a kind of thrumming, meditative poetry that only comes from long periods of time in the woods and on the lake." - SEVEN Magazine
