Holm & Tanz w. Sammie Jean Cohen, Shawty Ensemble
Sunday September 17 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Holm & Tanz is a Minneapolis, Minnesota based folk duo born out of COVID-19 quarantine. Dan Tanz responded to a social media post by Chris Holm about writing songs together remotely by passing lyrics and recordings back and forth over the internet. The first song they wrote together, Lost a Friend, went so well they decided to release it and continue collaborating though never being in the same place at once. When COVID restrictions lifted, Holm & Tanz decided to also become a live act performing their fresh take on classic American folk music with their complementary acoustic guitar styles and vocal harmonies.
Sammie Jean Cohen – Born and raised in Minnesota with a big voice that sings from real life experiences. Sammie came into this world singing but took a hitatis when she discovered she has Vocal Cord Dysphonia. Since starting speech therapy she has been able to keep on going with tools to keep her voice a float and healthy. She strives to learn finger picking and is actively playing shows all over. When she isn’t singing she is out taking photos. Some of her biggest influence are Heartless bastards, Etta James, Shakey Graves, Alanis Morissette, The Eagles and more.
Shawty Ensemble is a jazz noise group that was only supposed to last for a day. Yet this is their fifth incarnation as an eight-piece and they’re still growing.
