(((folkYEAH!))) Presents
Mark Olson, founder of the Jayhawks is appearing with Ingunn Ringvold to celebrate their new CD. This is music that will speak to you about things that have happened! An album that sounds like you are alone in the desert all by yourself. Remembering childhood experiences and musical instruments and all the joy that took place. We have forgotten because of terrible things that have happened. Is it the truthfulness that attracts you to this music? Listen out of time: Mark Olson & Ingunn Ringvold are singing ‘Spokeswoman of the Bright Sun’, the follow-up of the critically acclaimed Alternative Country/Americana masterpiece ‘Good-bye Lizelle’ (Glitterhouse Records, 2014).
Ingunn Ringvold – Mark’s wife and musical partner in life and music – comes from Norway, the home of Thor Heyerdahl, the explorer of Easter Island and Kon Tiki raft author. She has been singing in public since she was a very young person. Her voice is one of natural beauty.

Lee Gallagher (solo)
Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah

Having recently been named one of the Top 5 Best Up-and-Coming Bay area bands of 2014 by CBS and most recently one of 5 bands to watch in 2015 by Relix magazine, Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah have clearly made a mark in their short time together since forming in mid-2013.

Based in San Francisco but comprised of Midwestern and Southern transplants with a devotion to honest roots based American music, they weave a sonic tapestry framed by wailing guitars, churning organ, and more than a slight nod to the southern gospel music of their past. The band has garnered buzz for their live shows which transform traditional music venues into sweaty, hip-shaking, psychedelic tent revivals.

«The music on the self-titled debut from Lee Gallagher & the Hallelujah would be impressive regardless of the backstory: 11 tunes that are extremely comfortable in their own soulful, rocking skin. The fact that Gallagher and his bandmates had only been playing together for four months prior to laying down those tracks is as mind-blowing as some of their jams....Gallagher's vocal power may remind you of the late Steve Marriott or a young Robert Plant-- he plays a wicked blues harp, too» — Brian Robbins, Relix Magazine
