Miner Brewing Music Series Presents: Sissy Brown @ Miner Brewing Company

Miner Brewing Music Series Presents: Sissy Brown @ Miner Brewing Company | Hill City | South Dakota | United States

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.”

Miner Brewing Music Series Presents: Andrea von Kampen with special guests The Gossamer Strings @ Miner Brewing Company | Hill City | South Dakota | United States

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.

Miner Brewing Music Series Presents: The Lark and The Loon @ Miner Brewing Company | Hill City | South Dakota | United States

Enjoy an evening of free music as The Lark and The Loon return to the Miner Brewing Company Taproom on Friday, July 12. Enjoy a pint or two and start your weekend off right with this afterhours show, with music beginning at 7:30 p.m.

The Lark and The Loon are a songwriting duo consisting of husband/wife team Jeff Rolfzen and Rocky Steen-Rolfzen. The two bring their distinct writing styles together in what they call an exploration in the etymology of American music. They take inspiration from prewar blues and jazz, Irish dance music, Sea shanties, and traditional American music as well. Their debut album “Songbirds and Fog” was recorded in their cabin home in the Ozarks after a period of heavy isolation and was met with critical acclaim. Earning Folk DJ radio chart placement, an award winning music video, and being included on several “best of” lists from places like Sundilla Radio Hour, Music You Can’t Hear on the Radio, and others. Heralded for their harmonies, duets, and musicianship the two have enjoyed touring extensively both in the United States and abroad. When not on the road they enjoy the comfort of their Ozark home where they garden in the rocky soil, hike the scenic hills, and soak in the tranquility before their next venture.

Miner Brewing Music Series Presents: The Rough & Tumble @ Miner Brewing Company
Aug 22 @ 7:30 pm
Miner Brewing Music Series Presents: The Rough & Tumble @ Miner Brewing Company | Hill City | South Dakota | United States

Mallory Graham and Scott Tyler formed The Rough & Tumble in 2011, after nearly five years of sidestepping the awkward musical tension between them. Then, four years, three EPs, and one year-long, 24-song challenge known as The Rough & Tumble’s Holiday Awareness Campaign later, the duo decided it was high time to stop sidestepping the tension of the cartoon hearts in their eyes, too. In 2015, the couple sold everything they couldn’t store in boxes small enough to fit in Mallory’s sister’s spare closet, quit their day jobs, admitted they were in love, and bought a 16-foot camper to venture on the open road, playing shows nationwide.

They’ve been out there ever since, recording two additional EPs (2016’s Pieces and Pieces and this 2017’s Cardboard and Christmas Lights), squeezing in a second dog, and their first full-length album, 2018’s We Made Ourselves a Home When We Didn’t Know. With their debut, the folk-Americana duo retraces their mileage back to their footsteps and explores the struggle between going home and being home already when there’s no other home and everywhere is home. Recorded in East Nashville with Dave Coleman, The Rough & Tumble invited a couple of musician friends from their sad-singer-songwriter and rock-n-roll-rebel days to accompany them on a portrait of what has happened so far, and what they hope is still to come.

Don’t miss them as they roll through Hill City again on Thursday, Aug. 22, for a 7:30 p.m. free show in the Miner Brewing Company Taproom.
