Ian George at Forager Brewing Company

Ian will be joined by acclaimed upright bassist Ted Olsen.

“Ian George is a fanciful folk troubadour with a rhythmic flow and spirited vision. He’s an American Matt Corby; a heartwarming blend of Iron & Wine’s folk and Vampire Weekend’s frisky energy. George’s music is the type to which one would ascribe words like frolic and wandering, but his songs are equally intimate and emotional… Worthy of everyone’s ears, songs we can teach our children, our parents, our grandparents, and ourselves.” ~Atwood Magazine

Who is this guy?: A frisky and flamboyantly charismatic whipper-snapper of a young man (occasionally flaunting an enormously overgrown orange beard), Ian George is really just a simple folk singer who takes great fancy in playing around kitchen tables being ridiculous, and snacking.. For a decade Ian has been writing and singing songs for a handful of bands ever since the pivotal moment of being mangled and tasered by three brutally aggressive Eugene, Oregon police officers. After leaving the front-lines of activism behind, he turned to homesteading and minstreling as a form of activism. “I believe in music and stories, I believe they change the world,” says Ian, often. Ian is somewhat frighteningly slender (openly vocalized mostly by his mother) and enjoys performing shoe-less and sweater-full. The crowds really enjoy his ballerina frolic through the kitchen adorned with nothing but his daughter’s tutu story. If Ian was good enough and could make enough money playing as an Irish fiddler, he would.. But since he’s not (not yet) he instead frontiers the Contemporary-Avant-Folk-Music world, happily. Ian’s live performance is an experimental and emotional ride teeming with unpredictable banter. Ian currently spends his time between the Twin Cities and New York City.

“Effulgent eclecticism on display in the forthcoming album. George’s forward-looking new offering is a subtle explosion of vibrant colors that delight.” ~PopMatters
