"This is exciting stuff. It has country-blues weaving through the melody, joy and pain riding their rustic tonsils and these young people have brought the truth in authentic folk music back from the dead." - No Depression Having charmed audiences from Ireland to California on the wings of their debut album songwriting duo The Lark and the Loon have a new album releasing this Fall. Entitled "Homestead Hands" it's a collection of songs inspired by stories of their ancestors who settled the wild western prairie and the northern Mississippi River. The songs fuse with concepts the two have experienced near their remote Ozark home and their life as musicians on the road. These songs will meet their catalog of music on stage in a mix of music inspired by prewar blues, early jazz, Irish music, and good old fashioned folk music. Heralded for their duets, harmonies, and musicianship the two will be bringing their signature array of accordion, banjos, guitars, shotgun shell turned stompbox and washboard with them straight off their Arkansas porch. Joining the duo on the second half of the evening are the Mississippi Hot Club who will be bringing their signatory sounds of jazz manouche aka gypsy jazz that has been making waves across the Twin Cities in recent years. www.thelarkandtheloon.com
