Mark your calendars as Sissy Brown returns to the Miner Brewing Co. Taproom. Enjoy free live music from 7 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, May 25.
Hailing from Oklahoma and currently residing in Kansas City (with stops in Spokane, Los Angeles, and Austin along the way), Sissy Brown is a classically trained singer whose music has progressively drifted back to the honky-tonk and outlaw country of her Midwestern roots. Since moving to Kansas City, she has released several demos and is in the process of recording her first full-length album.
In her own words: “Oh, hell, I grew up in Oklahoma in a family full of country musicians. I’ve lived all over the place and play nationwide, 9 months a year! My life is full of cowgirl stuff, hard times, wild times, and everything in between on a ranch in North Texas.”
Join us for our annual Memorial Day service, honoring all our veterans and others from around the world. The service will include participation by the Rushmore VFW Post #1273, the Patriot Guard Riders, and Boy Scout Troop 320. The service will be led by Pastors Herb Cleveland and Warren Lahammer, with special guest Mr. Stan Adelstein. Music will be led by Del and Sharon Beck. A light meal will follow, sponsored by Thrivent Financial. All are welcome!
Attendees are invited and encouraged to stay after the meal to attend the opening night of the Chapel’s Evening Worship Service.
Mark your calendar for an evening of music in the Miner Brewing Co. Taproom as the Miner Brewing Music Series Presents: Andrea von Kampen with special guests The Gossamer Strings. Join us beginning at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 1, for this after-hours show at Miner Brewing Co.
With over 7 million Spotify streams and counting, Nebraska-based songwriter Andrea von Kampen has quickly established herself in the recording studio and on the road. Her deft guitar work and intuitive song construction display striking maturity, and her effortless vocal delivery has been praised by Hear Nebraska as “soulful and worn-in.”
The Gossamer Strings is an old-time folk music duo with rich harmonies over beautiful instrumentation on guitar, banjo and mandolin (no, not all three at the same time), and haunting original songwriting by Kyle McGonegle and Liat Tova Lis. They unravel a new story in each song with clear and heartfelt singing that exposes the emotion hidden in the verse. Their tight instrumentation brings each song to another level, as the pair breathes together, not just in their harmonies, but also through their instruments. The pair invites listeners into their world with warm conversation like old friends.
Doors open for this intimate Tap Room performance at 8 p.m. with music beginning at 8:30. Advance tickets are just $10 and can be purchased online, in the Miner Brewing Co. Taproom, or by calling 605.574.3898. Prices increase to $12 on the day of the show and tickets will only be available in the Taproom.
