Freewheelin’ First Friday’s – Ryan Young (Trampled By Turtles) with Ian Thomas Alexy | Jillian Rae Band
May 3, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pmFREE
Freewheelin’ First Friday’s
Ryan Young (Trampled By Turtles) with Ian Thomas Alexy (Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank): 9pm
Ian is the kind of musician that can not only write and sing songs but is also an accomplished guitarist that can approach his songs from many different angles. To be able to play those different roles is a lost art that is only continued by old troubadours like Willie Nelson, and a small group of young songwriters. Known for both his work as a solo artist, and his with the national-touring americana roots duo Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank, Ian Thomas Alexy has had a total of seven releases since relocating to Minnesota and starting CIC Records in 2004 with his brother and bandmate Teague Alexy. Ian Thomas Alexy has toured the country many times over with Hobo Nephews and as a solo artist. (site)
Jillian Rae Band: 7pm
The band’s namesake is its multi-talented violinist, lead vocalist, and songwriter, Jillian Rae. Her creative and dynamic style of violin playing along with her lifelong experience as a performer, lend her an assured stage presence. She has an innate ability to create hook-laden tunes affirming the positives of life in the face of struggle and disappointment. With the overarching joy she takes in all things musical, it was inevitable that Jillian should form her own band… and not too surprising that it should be in her own name. (site)
