Posted on 12 February 2016 by Calvin

Silver Linings and Footfall, will be playing for your donations at Ginkgo Coffeehouse (721 N. Snelling), Sat., Feb. 20, 8-10pm.

The show will be filmed live by Water Street Sessions, a local filmmaking team based in St. Paul. Silver Lining starts things off (8-9pm). Silver Lining is Joe Fishbein on mandolin and Dawn Tanner on vocals and guitar. Their music is a mix of folk originals/covers and fiddle tunes. Covers are from folk artists: Lucy Kaplansky, Lindsay Mac, Peter Mulvey, Drew Nelson, and Sam Baker. Their first album is soon to be available with friend and guest star, Adam Granger.

Footfall plays from 9-10pm. They bring up the energy with their alt country sound rocking the coffeehouse. Footfall is Debbie Cushman on guitar and vocals and Jim Christiansen on guitar, slide guitar, mandolin, and vocals. Their first CD, Running Toward the Moon, is just over a year old. They are busy working on their second release…coming soon.

Christopher BecknellGuitarist Christopher Becknell (photo right) will be performing Fri., Feb. 26, 8pm. Cost of the concert is $10 (plus sales tax). Becknell tells stories without using words. Choosing the style and techniques to weave the tale, the depth of his abilities is immediately apparent. Though he often performs with other musicians, and in bands, this concert will showcase his abilities as a solo performer.

Peter MulveyPeter Mulvey (photo left) is scheduled to appear at Ginkgo on Fri., Mar. 18, 8pm. Tickets are $15 in advance, $18 after 6pm day of the show. Mulvey is a walking secret handshake. He has been the street-singing kid in Dublin, the man fronting the storming electric band, the conspiratorial spoken-word craftsman, the Tin Pan Alley delver, and an instigator in the occasional Redbird collective. Through it he has remained the traveler out on the road, bringing his music to audiences from Fairbanks to Bilbao, Santa Monica to Montreal, in clubs, theaters, coffeeshops, the Kennedy Center, and old barns. Honing his musicianship, his phrasing, his ability to inhabit a song, he has come into his own, with a sound full of grit and warmth, at the same time startling and familiar.
