Thunder uses his painterly aesthetic and training to give these images a rich and handcrafted look. Manifesto is a bridge between worlds.

Wes Urbaniak live at the Barrel Room in Fitger's

Date: January 19
Time: 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
(218) 723-7827 • Visit Website

Stepping out on the first tour of the year with the trio to make links and start waves. Change starts there in the self - The Change in Me is the Change in You - and he brings it in music with his Mountain Folk. Wes Urbaniak's experimental expression puts fire to the gasoline structure of folk music. His songwriting can be thought of as a quilting of life lived, lessons learned, humility sought, and understanding earned through the processes of becoming a steady and thoughtful man. In support of that Mountain Folk music that Urbaniak plays, he has brought on some other stringed talent in the form of Mat Regele and David Banuelos to help develop the dynamic and the melodic themes for the stories that he delivers. Urbaniak's guitars, the instruments that he records albums with, and all that his group play were built with a large amount of repurposed material by Urbaniak. They have his voice and are recognized as being as much art as function, each with its own distinct soul and spirit. Free to attend at held at 600 East Superior Street in Duluth.
