Live Music: Aubrey Olson

LIVE MUSIC: Friday, September 22 from 4-6 pm in Moberg Park!

Aubrey Olson grew up in the sleepy town of Lindstrom MN and has been writing song since the age of 13. She earned her bachelors of science in music in the fall of 2015, and plays regularly at coffee shops, wineries and churches. Her song writing style changes with her mood, but if she were to be categorized, she would fall under a country/folk genre. Her lyrical content shifts from romance, life issues, and God.

Live Music: Bobby & Christine

Bobby & Christine are an emerging folk act featuring one guitar, two voices, and a variety of percussive elements. The mix is primarily interpretations of deeper tracks of well-known artists, infused with some original songs and original flatpicking instrumentals.

Bobby’s influences include The G. Dead, Neil Young and Bob Dylan. Christine has a mellow and smooth voice,.a nice ear for traditional folk harmonies, and tends towards Sarah Maclachlan, K.D. Lang, and The Indigo Girls. Vocally she sounds a bit like Mary Chapin Carpenter ….like Mary she makes sure you can hear the words she sings.
They present a bit of a boy/girl odd couple….though it comes off rather well. Bobby ‘s personable, bold, gravelly vocals combine with Christine’s soft, fluid tone that lends interest and variety. His skill as a guitarist gives the listener something to grab and hang onto. They break a lot of rules, improvising not only chord  progressions, guitar riffs and harmonies, but often the lyrics themselves.
You will hear a fair number of tunes you recognize, but will find their arrangements both dramatic and refreshing.
LIVE MUSIC, Fridays from 4-6 pm in Moberg Park!
