Long Mama with Kendra Swanson
The Jazz Estate, Milwaukee, WI
KENDRA SWANSON is an independent folk music performer and songwriter. With strong, expressive vocals and energetic instrumentation, she applies a timeless sound to original compositions written from (and about) the American heartland. It has been described as "soulful," "homey," "sincere," and "heartfelt," delivered with a passionate voice that cuts through the loudest of bars (and the hardest of hearts).
LONG MAMA will take you on a honeymoon to the Badlands and leave you there with no map. Long Mama will carry you across the backwaters of broken minds and untamable hearts. Long Mama will tuck you in under high plains stars while she drinks all of your bad rosé. Milwaukee singer-songwriter Kat Wodtke leads a powerful cast including Andrew Koenig (guitar), Nick Lang (percussion), Gavin Hardy (bass), and Eva Nimmer (vocals) on this western journey of wide open spaces and tight spots, each song shimmering with honesty, heart, and grit.
