Video: Eilen Jewell at the Mississippi River Festival
Eilen Jewell and her band put on an excellent show - this is one of the slower tunes, 'Boundary County,' which is the title track from her debut CD. Driving all the way from Massachusets to perform on the North bank of the Mississippi River, they are leading a new generation of roots music, part of her music is instantly recognizable, the other part is instantly fresh and innovative.
The 6th Annual 91.7 KAXE Mississippi River Festival was on July 17th, 2010 featuring Pelican Railroad from Bemidji, Steve Kaul and the Brass Kings, Keri Noble, Eilen Jewell and Willie Murphy.
It was a great festival that also included local, handmade art/items from KAXE members.
Though it was looming from time to time, we only got some scattered sprinkles (all the worst weather drifted towards Brainerd).
