Michael Gay w. Megan Bee

Thursday July 25 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

MICHAEL GAY is a Minneapolis-based country folk storyteller. Starting off as a drummer and finding his way to guitar, he was inspired by the singer-songwriters of his dad’s generation–Willie Nelson, John Prine and Jerry Jeff Walker.

Born in Denver and raised in Rochester, MN, Michael studied history at the University of Minnesota with the intention of teaching high school social studies until he moved to Minneapolis’ vibrant NE neighborhood and was drawn to the bands and songwriters playing corner bars like the 331 Club. He was hooked.

Singer-songwriter Megan Bee writes with an unquenchable wanderlust and a deep love for the land.  Her album “Cottonwood” has been called “as real as it gets” and was listed in the best of 2022 by Americana UK and No Depression Magazine. Her music is a blend of distinctly homespun vocals, acoustic simplicity, yearning soulfulness, and winsome storytelling. Her background as an environmental educator, farmhand, and vagabond once took her into a desert wilderness where she found her voice around a campfire.  She bases in the rolling hills of Athens, Ohio and draws influence from the collision of Appalachian folk and modern songwriting.
