Red Tail Ring wsg Doug Mains & the City Folk

On Saturday, April 28th, East Lansing's (SCENE) Metrospace (110 Charles St) will host Kalamazoo-based roots duo Red Tail Ring in concert. Local favorites, Doug Mains and the CityFolk will play an opening set. Music starts at 8 pm, and doors open at 7.

Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door.

Red Tail Ring is the Americana roots duo of Michael Beauchamp and Laurel Premo. Whether rendering a traditional tune or one of their original compositions, the duo infuses each song with musical imagination, haunting harmonies and instrumental artistry on fiddle, guitar, banjo, mandolin, jawharp and plain-old foot stomping. Three years and 300-plus shows into their partnership Beauchamp and Premo have traveled increasingly farther in their musical ramblings, playing shows throughout the Midwest, East Coast and Southeastern United States. In the summer of 2011, the duo added Denmark to their list when they performed and taught as cultural ambassadors through the American Embassy. Red Tail Ring, a member of the Earthwork Music Collective, has been featured on Michigan Public Radio's All Things Considered, and in February were awarded Best New Artist of 2011 by Grand Rapids-based radio station WYCE.

Doug Mains and the CityFolk is a five piece indie-folk band based in Lansing, Michigan. Their instrumentation includes acoustic guitar, violin, cello, accordion, upright bass, percussion and multiple vocalists, and the music that they create ranges from intimate guitar and vocal melodies to songs that swell with high energy and excitement.
