Join us for some live music by Drew Peterson! Drew Peterson is an independent Americana singer-songwriter who has captivated fans across the Midwest for over 20 years. Since fronting the Minnesota-based group Forty Watt Bulb, Peterson has spawned two other successful Roots projects; the twangy, upbeat Dead Pigeons and bluegrass-influenced Boxstore Bird. Peterson has built a unique brand that transcends the genre. With clever, dry humor and thought-provoking lyrics, Peterson’s music is like oil over gravel. Drawing on influences from John Prine, Tom Waits, Cat Stevens, Van Morrison, among others, Peterson offers the world upbeat tunes with a soft- spoken gravitas that belies his years. With a performance style that can transform from intimate listening room to rowdy festivals and bars, Peterson always gives his heart and soul to the stage. And with each new performance, he works to connect with the audience through storytelling.

This is going to be a great evening of music at the one and only Bryant Lake Bowl Theater. Americana singer-songwriter Drew Peterson will be starting off the night followed by Folk/Americana trio MorningBird - performing their brand new album - 'Echoes in the Meadow.' Coming from a long line of musically inept Norwegian Farmers and born without natural talent, Drew Peterson tackled his musical endeavors the way he had been taught while growing up on a farm in rural MN - hard work and a lot of practice. With over 20 years under his belt, Peterson incorporates clever, dry humor and thought-provoking lyrics into heartfelt and unforgettable performances. Listen at drewpetersonmusic.com MorningBird is an acoustic trio from Northern MN featuring Rob Wheeler (guitar, mandolin, harmonica, stomp box, vocals,) Jill Burkes (violin, guitar, vocals,) and Josh Palmi (upright bass, guitar, vocals.) The trio offers haunting harmonies and powerful string arrangements woven into an eclectic mix of music. 'Echoes in the Meadow' is a result of the magic that happened when the trio spent 3 weeks on the road - traveling, writing, and playing gigs across the west in the Fall of 2023. After touring they quickly made their way into the studio. All three members are songwriters and trade off writing and singing leads throughout the album, available online May 10.
