Details

Much like the popular board game the band was named after (Settlers of Catan), Sheep for Wheat has 4 players, is deceptively simple and playfully modular. The band came together at Winona State University in the mid-2010's and has been sporadically active all over the driftless region in their years as a band. After over-hearing a concert goer once describe their music as “Midwest Surf” they have since adopted this as their unofficial genre category; more so their music has influences of classic rock, bluegrass, blues, jam, among others. All members contribute composition, melody, and lyrics to the songwriting process. With songwriting that balances the complexities of nostalgia with a straightforward celebration of joy, Sheep for Wheat is the old friend at the neighborhood bar who you are glad to see. And as the music plays you may turn your head, tap your toe, and ask them back for another show.
Loreweavers is dedicated to introducing tavern and fantasy soundtracks to a larger audience. They take inspiration from music that is featured in games such as The Witcher and Skyrim, as well as traditional Irish melodies and sea shanties. Their performances transport their audience to a world of enchantment and adventure.
These talented musicians showcase a wide range of talents, including traditional Irish instruments such as uilleann pipes and bodhrán, as well as guitar, accordion, and mandolin. Their performances are captivating and fun for all ages!
