The Pines coming to Papa Charlies

Ethereal folk rockers The Pines have just announced that they’ll be performing in Lutsen at Papa Charlie’s on Monday, March 20 as part of the their Current-sponsored Songwriter Series.  

This is a free show and starts at 8 p.m. so spread the word!

The Pines will be joined by Native American singer/songwriter Keith Secola, who’s a member of the Native Music Hall of Fame and is known for his song “NDN Kars” (Indian cars), the most requested song on tribal radio since 1992. The Pines are continuing to tour for their recent release, Above the Prairie, their first studio release in four years. Surreal and sublime, the Minneapolis-base trio melds acoustic instruments against atmospheric keyboard backgrounds. Their songs are inspired by their native Midwest, exploring the vast expanses around and above them, from the isolated farms and small towns of the plains to the array of stars that dot the night sky. The Pines have shared the stage with everyone from Arcade Fire and Bon Iver to Mavis Staples and The Holmes Brothers. Their 2012 LP Dark So Gold was named #3 best album of the decade by the Minneapolis Star Tribune, and Vintage Guitar called it “a soundtrack of American Gothic intensity…a stunner of an album.”
