It pays to live in Low's home town. On Friday, March 30 locals were lucky enough to experience the band performing a work originally commissioned for the Organ Reframed festival at London's Union Chapel back in October and only performed twice since, in Amsterdam and at SXSW. Duluth's Sacred Heart Music Center, with its renowned Felgemaker organ, served as the perfect venue for this special show, the seats turned to face the balcony. The performance was a benefit for the Friends of the Felgemaker and Churches United in Ministry.

For some, it was an emotional homecoming to a venue that hosted some of the most memorable moments from Duluth's music and arts scene from the '90s to the mid-2000s. For others, it was a first chance to experience music in one of Duluth's last remaining historic  theaters.

Social media clued people in to one of the Homegrown Music Festival’s many unofficial events, a Wednesday afternoon living room show at Washington Galleries with music from Superior Siren and others leading up to the main event, Westside Wednesday.

Homegrown’s official West End/West Duluth onslaught began at 6 with Mahtowa, Minnesota’s finest country gospel practitioners the Holy Hootenanners filling the upstairs stage at Clyde Iron Works.

HOMEGROWN WEEK ON KUMD.
Since we last had Low in our studio, they've released an album, Ones and Sixes, and toured the world, including a first-ever visit to China. We caught up with them and got a preview of their Homegrown show at Clyde Iron Works the same night May 4, 2016.

This week on Radio Gallery we are joined by Marc Gartman, a local musician and film artist who created "Closer Than That", a film that gives an intimate look at local Duluth band Low. As part of the Duluth Superior Film Festival, this documentary follows the band as they traveled around the world back in 2000 with their recent album Secret Name.

  Influential Duluth band Low recently celebrated 20 years together. Listen to our special hour-long session from February 13, 2014 as we talked with them about their legacy, and their most recent release.
