CelloWoman to perform two-concert series

BEMIDJI -- CelloWoman will perform a two-concert series, both in-person and virtually, from 7:30 to 9 p.m., June 4-5, at the Rail River Folk School, located at 303 Railroad Ave. SE.

"CelloWoman is a special collaboration with Geoffrey Taylor who will be bowing through the multitude of voices on his strings," a release said. "Like all mudsong bandmates, Geoffrey follows improvisational tastes and smiles, making each concert a one-of-a-kind soulfully sonic ride.

"For the past decade, mudsong has been crafting original, tale-length concerts that sound the heartache and hallelujah of our breaking human hearts. Thomas King said, 'The truth about stories is that’s all we are.' The truth about mudsong is songstories are all we are. Original stories. Fresh songs. Crafted from the sloppy, raw mess of life? That's what we do. As musicians, we anticipate our evenings to open on the heart-fire of the bass guitar, shimmy through the saxophone, and linger over heart and soul."

The concert is free to attend, but registration is required to reserve a ticket and the option to recieve a link to the livestream version of the performance. To register, visit . For more information, visit or contact Mary Overlie at or (218) 444-8170 .
