June 16 – 2nd Street Stage 6-8 p.m.
Americana / Folk Rock
Farewell Milwaukee brought their Americana and folk rock music to 2nd Street Stage in 2016 and again in 2017. Mainstays of the Minneapolis music scene since 2008, Farewell Milwaukee embraces the role their Midwestern towns have played in shaping them artistically, garnering fans through their authentic lyrics, lush vocal harmonies and an honest sincerity at live shows. It is because of this, they have gathered accolades from local and national press, landed a song placement on major-network TV, opened for the Lumineers and are featured on compilations alongside Mumford & Sons, Adele and Amos Lee. Farewell Milwaukee recently released their 4th full-length album, FM, the product of successfully achieving the balance of furthering their artistic careers with a family life. Major sponsors are R.D. Offutt Farms, TruStar Federal Credit Union and Monika’s Quilt and Yarn Shop. Band sponsor June 16 is Park Rapids Walker Eye Clinic. Arrive at 5 for the social hour, sponsored by Itasca-Mantrap Cooperative, and remember to bring your own chair.
