The Paradise Center for the Arts in Historic downtown Faribault is proud to present Dana Louise and the Glorious Birds this Saturday, November 11 at 7:30pm. This performance features original American Roots music including bluegrass, jazz, and contemporary folk. This show is being offered for FREE to all Veterans and Service Members.

In a press release Wednesday they announced during a solo journey to the Azores Islands in 2011, Dana Louise, a visual artist, taught herself to play guitar. The daughter of Ezra Idlet of the Grammy-nominated Trout Fishing in America, Dana forged the beginnings of her sound, practicing amidst the archipelago’s lava rocks and dragon trees. Back in the States, she began singing and songwriting professionally, touring regionally and internationally, and is currently touring her debut album with Trout Records.

Joined by the Glorious Birds — Adams Collins (vibraphone and 5-string banjo), and Ezra Idlet and Keith Grimwood (Trout Fishing in America/guitar, percussion and bass) — Dana brings her vibrant, melodic vocals and finger picking to a body of complex songs. Drawing from jazz and bluegrass, carrying a contemporary beat, the sound is roots-rooted flung-into-the-future folk. Dana Louise and the Glorious Birds work to leave their audiences glowing with the magic music can bring: genuine human connection.

Dana Louise and the Glorious Birds perform Saturday, November 11 at 7:30 pm at the Paradise Center for the Arts, 321 Central Avenue N in downtown Faribault. Tickets are $15 Members| $20 Non-Members| $10 for Students | FREE for Veterans and Service Members.
