Joining us with a band in tow, Luke Callen of La Crosse Wisconsin takes the stage at Big River Theatre Friday, February 23. 2024 at 7:00pm. Join us for a super cool album release show!
At the intersection of Harry Smith’s Old Weird America – the songs of heartworn highways – and the tumult of today you can find the music of Luke Callen. The songs – equal parts tragic comedy and hopeless reverie – paint a picture of the places and people that make up his earthly home. A poet – a player – a folk singer – Luke has traversed his country unraveling tall tales – short tunes and all that’s hidden underneath.
Originally from the river town of La Crosse, Wisconsin – the heart of the Driftless Region on the Mississippi River – and currently lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota by way of Colorado Luke brings his humble sense of humor and humanity wherever he may go. Luke’s second studio effort Also Going Nowhere is set to be released in the late winter/early spring of 2024. Produced by Erik Koskinen and tracked at his studio – Real Phonic Records in Cleveland, MN – it features Lauren Anderson (Bass), Chris Gray (Drums) – Franky Moscow (Keys) and Erik Koskinen (additional guitars). This 11 song effort shows a maturity in Luke’s songwriting – a new sense of groove – and what all great records have…a little love, a little pain, a little laughter and few tracks for to dance
