Jake Manders and Paul Lawrence

Jake Manders plays folk and Americana music ranging from foot-stomping jams to mournful ballads. Jake often cranks it up with his trusty set of harmonicas, and is known to do a fair bit of stomping on stage. He also performs with alt-bluegrass band, “The Pistol Whippin’ Party Penguins.” Jake is a practicing multi-media artist, and will have prints available at this show.

Paul’s original folk-country-blues have been performed on stages from Minneapolis to Taipei. Paul’s music ranges from folk and country ballads to bluesy boot-stompers, all while delivering exceptional vocals and finely crafted lyrics. “Paul is an excellent wordsmith who sings beautifully, and creates both entertaining and meaningful songs. His energy is infectious. A fun and memorable performer.” – MikeFischer, Chippewa ValleyBluesSociety

“Paul Lawrence has an earnestness and simplicity in his sound that is so refreshing! Moments come to life through his storytelling and you just want more.” – Jeni Grouws, 100.5 FM, KDEC, Decorah, IA
