Freakwater
Freakwater's Janet Bean and Catherine Irwin first put their distinctive harmonies to tape under a swinging Kentucky country ham in Janet's parent's basement in 1985. After 30 years together, Catherine and Janet's unflinching lyrics and compelling vocal harmonies can stab you in the heart from a mile away. There is a powerful continuity to their work but the band has never been constrained by any musical category. There is no band like Freakwater but Freakwater.
Nora O'Connor - (Set time: 8:15 PM)
Nora O'Connor
Nora O’Connor is a Chicago-based musician and singer whose vocal talents are the secret weapon behind some of the city’s top performers and recordings. Nora is currently touring as a back-up singer and multi instrumentalist with The Decemberists. She has spent a good share of years on the road with Andrew Bird, Iron and Wine, Robbie Fulks and her old cow-punk band The Blacks (those were some times!). You can hear Nora on recordings with The New Pornographers, Neko Case, Archer Prewitt (The Sea and Cake) among countless others. Nora possesses a sensitive and honey-sweet vocal delivery, and is a solid sender on guitar -- which is why this lady's phone never stops ringing.  In 2010, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy enlisted Nora O'Connor and Kelly Hogan as a primary vocalists on gospel legend Mavis Staples’ Grammy Award-winning album “You Are Not Alone.”
