Luke LeBlanc
Luke LeBlanc is a Minneapolis-based singer-songwriter who delivers dynamic and versatile original performances that feature a warm, organic merging of rootsy folk and pop. As noted by The Current, LeBlanc’s music is “so delicate, understated, and careful in its construction that you forget it’s taking apart how to live in such an unstable world while giving solace and a place for rest.” Luke’s music has received critical acclaim from numerous music magazines, including Bluegrass Situation, Americana Highways, and Glide Magazine, and he has shared the stage with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Charlie Parr, and Grammy-Nominee Amythyst Kiah. His newest record, Places, was produced by Erik Koskinen and is his debut album for Real Phonic Records.

Friend Dog

As the personal project of Vinnie Donatelle (The Last Revel) Friend Dog has been described as "Folky The National" or "something between Big Thief and Blaze Foley" but could more accurately be summed up as an act that dresses for the weather



The Roe Family Singers
Bonfire Music Group recording artists the Roe Family Singers are a Good-Time, Old-Time Hillbilly band from the tiny community of Kirkwood Hollow, MN. Led by wife & husband Kim and Quillan Roe, the band marries old-time sounds from barn-dances, fiddle pulls, and county fairs with the rock & roll passion of youth.

They’ve shared the stage with Doc Watson, Ralph Stanley, Mike Seeger, Del McCoury, Jesse McReynolds, the Grascals, Jim Kweskin & Geoff Muldaur, Junior Brown, Asleep at the Wheel, and John McEuen & John Carter Cash.

Emmy Woods
Emmy Woods (she/they) was born and raised on an old dirt* road in rural North Dakota and currently resides in Saint Paul, Minnesota. With hints of country, folk, and blues, Emmy’s songs showcase both her knack for storytelling, her strengths in musical artistry, and an impressive vocal range and ability. When asked to describe her sound in three words, Dr. Kyle Smith said, “Queer Farm Vibes… or maybe… Sad Boy Progressive.”

While Emmy has been writing songs for over 20 years, her first collection of songs, tristia bella, as well as her albums the manifold and delirium were not released until 2020. She has since formed a band, the Red Pine Ramblers, and continues to gain momentum with her genre bending sound. 


Cause for Concern
Cause for Concern is a dynamic 3-piece rock band known for their originality and vibrant energy. Their music features a blend of groovy, blues-infused tracks with psychedelic, fuzzy elements and memorable hooks that leave a lasting impression.

Hailing from Minneapolis, MN, the band features Max on lead vocals and guitar, Saren on bass, and Jonathan on drums.


Boots & Needles
Boots & Needles combines the talents of Lauren Asheim and Dallas Cornell and features Old and New Country Blues, Traditional, and Rockabilly vibes.  You may recognize Lauren from past bands including The Hula Peppers and Slippery People.  She has also trod the boards as an actor and vocalist all over the Twin Cities including the Guthrie Theater, the History Theater, Mixed Precipitation and more.  Dallas brings a wealth of musical skills and an eye for design to the duo and also plays with the Cornell Power Service.  Known as the "human metronome" and a skilled sewing machinist, he is full of surprises.  They aim to share their love of all things country and blues, sparkles and dirt and maybe a few more unexpected pairings along the way...


Turn Turn Turn
Turn Turn Turn is a trio who bonded over their mutual love of close harmony 60s and 70s country, folk, and pop music and formed an original Americana band. To create their distinctive sound, the band “turns” to the distant past of early American recorded music, “turns” again to that renaissance of the 1960s and 1970s, and finally “turns” again to the present looking forward.

​Members Adam Levy (guitar, vocals), Savannah Smith (guitar, vocals) and Barb Brynstad (bass, vocals) are all mainstays of the Minnesota music scene and together craft an infectious, pop-infused Americana.

​Even though Turn Turn Turn was born as a cover band, the group's original material – sweetheart alt-country folk-pop  – quickly stole the spotlight.

Turn Turn Turn’s Laurel Canyon meets 70's-Nashville-cosmic soul vibe is layered with three-part harmonies that stitch the band’s musical tapestry together. Brynstad, Smith, and Levy have distinct voices, and the combination – a “fourth voice” – is greater than the sum of its parts.
