Porcupine Mountains Music Festival

Congratulations!!! Well deserved!Two years ago we came to Nashville with a few hundred dollars in our bank account. We were asked by @buddymillermusic to come to perform @americanfest because he was sick. We stood in for Buddy at @americanafest and with just a 20 minute rehearsal played with his amazing band. (Photo below taken that night) The day before the show we went to @theryman to see @americanafest awards show (swipe left to see the terrible picture we took with the cheap cellphone we could afford) We sat there in awe of all of the artist we often trolled on YouTube. Artist like @thecivilwars @johnboymusic @shovelsnrope @joy__williams @themilkcartonkids and were amazed to be in the room with some of them. We wondered what it would feel like to be nominated. It’s hard to believe that this dream has come true today and Buddy shown above still sick grab his guitar and joined us on stage. (What a night that was) To be nominated with so many great artist for Group/Duo of the Year and Emerging Artist of the Year is ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. We are living out a dream and at a lost for words. Thank you to @americanafest, Americana music lovers and all of you who nominated us. We are so humbled by your love. What an honor! WOW! WOW! WOW! 📸2017 @americanafest ... See MoreSee Less

Emily Scott Robinson, I just discovered you and now you're coming to my neck of the woods!!!

Looks amazing as usual!

Very nice to see some Iowa talent, Elizabeth Moen, on the list. Maybe this will be the start of an influx of Iowa folks heading your way for the festival. It is a great venue, amazingly beautiful country, and some super kind people. Love it!

Going to be another GREAT Festival! Get your tickets, mark your calendars.... come to the Porcupine Mountains Music Festival! While you're here visit scenic Lake of the Clouds, it's right up the road. Lake Superior is across the road. Stop and go on a Picture Rocks Cruise....a trip to remember! Well worth the ride....(plus pasties!!!)
