Fri., June 24 | Miann
Michaela Thompson, under the artist title, “Miann” is a songstress weaving together ethereal themes and down to earth melodies in her work. With lyrics both realistic and spiritual, she creates a dreamlike atmosphere with beautiful vocal melodies, electric guitar, and piano.
Due to the large number of bands that will be performing at the 80/35 Music Festival, we have chosen not to have a performance on Friday, July 8. Instead we hope you will support their non-profit music festival in downtown Des Moines.
Fri., July 15 | Wally Neal & the Cloud Hidden Singers
A pocket orchestra playing the cosmic, candid songs of Wally Neal. Featuring Erin Radach on clarinet, Will Pett on cello and V Ellsbury on vocals.
V Ellsbury is a local singer/song writer/multi-instrumentalist musician. Picking up their first guitar at age 11, they haven’t stopped since! V’s sound can best be described as sultry and haunting with a little soul and blues dropped in.
Doomed Pioneers formed six years ago in Ames when Deanna and Jacqueline discovered that they enjoy the same mixture of jazz inspired folk music. Deanna has been singing all her life and is fascinated by minimalistic instrumentation and loves lyrics that employ a good turn of phrase. Jacqueline, originally a saxophone player, discovered the beauty of the guitar ten years ago and infuses songs of various genres with the feeling of Bossa Nova.
