"How to Duo With Pushing Chain" - Monday, Feb. 4, 6 p.m., Two Harbors Public Library, and Tuesday, Feb. 5, 6 p.m., Silver Bay Public Library.
Join Pushing Chain, an acoustic folky-tonk duo from the shores of Lake Superior, as they discuss musical choices and performance decisions as they apply to being a duo. How do they arrange songs to fit into the seemingly small box of an acoustic folk duo? What do they think about while writing, performing, and arranging material? How do they hold an audience's attention with two instruments and two microphones?
During this 60-minute program, Pushing Chain will discuss their process and illustrate the discussion with songs chosen from a vast catalog of original music, as well as some songs you probably know!
This program, sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. To learn more about Arrowhead Legacy events, please see our calendar at alslib.info
