Join us for a double CD release party with two talented singer/songwriters – Vicky Emerson and Mother Banjo! 

Americana singer/songwriter, Vicky Emerson, will release Steady Heart as a much anticipated follow up to her wildly successful 2016 effort, Wake Me When the Wind Dies Down. The Minneapolis Star Tribune said, “Vicky Emerson has voice like a fallen angel that’s as pretty as it is strong, and now she backs it up with growing lyrical depth and richly blue Americana arrangements on her third album.”  The album reached #58 on the US Americana Charts and soared to #5 on the European Americana Chart.

Featuring Ellen Stanley on banjo and vocals, Mother Banjo is a New England-raised, Minneapolis-based songwriter. Called “an outstanding poet” (Inside Bluegrass), she was a Midwest Finalist for the prestigious Mountain Stage NewSong Contest and has been featured nationally on SiriusXM Radio and CMT.com. Her first original release in over five years, the highly anticipated Eyes on the Sky is Mother Banjo’s most fully realized album to date, artfully mixing her signature blend of folk, bluegrass and soulful Americana that has become a hallmark of her live shows, whether playing solo or with her dynamic five-piece band.
