Maygen & The Birdwatcher
Performing Friday, June 24
Coming off the successful release of their “stunning” (Americana UK) debut full-length album, Moonshine, which earned them Midwest Country Music Awards for both Album of the Year and Americana Artist of the Year, Maygen & The Birdwatcher are poised for big things in 2022. Described as “an exciting goulash of Kacey Musgraves, Chris Stapleton, Florence + The Machine and Joe Cocker” (MostlyMinnesota), the band showcases original songs, fantastic harmonies, and tight musicianship that keep you anticipating what they’ll deliver next. They adventurously blur the sounds of country, bluegrass, folk and blues, creating a sound both familiar and all their own. The band also just released their version of Eagles song “Desperado” which landed them on popular Spotify playlists: Indie Bluegrass and Bluegrass Covers, broadening their reach.
“In many ways, Maygen & The Birdwatcher feel like a collaboration between two distinct artists versus a more seamless band– but it’s that individuality, those visible seams, that make them such a fascinating act.” – Adventures In Americana
