The Arrowhead Library System is pleased to present How to Duo with Pushing Chain, a free one-hour program being offered for high schoolers and older at the following dates and locations:
Join Pushing Chain, an acoustic folky-tonk duo from the shores of Lake Superior, as they discuss musical choices and performance decisions as they apply to being a duo. How do they arrange songs to fit into the seemingly small box of an acoustic folk duo? What do they think about while writing, performing, and arranging material? How do they hold an audience’s attention with two instruments and two microphones? During this 60-minute program, Pushing Chain will discuss their process and illustrate the discussion with songs chosen from a vast catalog of original music, as well as some songs you probably know!
Pushing Chain is a Northern Minnesota-based duo formed by longtime musical collaborators Boyd Blomberg (guitar/vocals) and Adam Moe (fiddle/vocals) that features marvelously exuberant vocal harmonies, impeccable timing and wit, and an infectious vibe that leaves audiences grinning. It’s high-energy folk music with a country twist, and it’s been winning them fans all across the U.S. and Canada.
