Winter Concert Series Continues with Jake Armerding

Singer-songwriter and violinist Jake Armerding returns to the White Gull Inn in Fish Creek with the Aeromatics for a performance on Jan. 21 at 8 pm.

The Boston Globe calls singer-songwriter Jake Armerding, “the most gifted and promising songwriter to emerge from the Boston folk scene in years.” Now living in the Twin Cities, Armerding started Suzuki violin lessons as a five-year-old, continued with classical violin lessons in high school while he absorbed fiddling from his bluegrasser father. At 13, he joined the bluegrass band Northern Lights on fiddle and recorded three albums with them during his high school and college years. He soon turned his attention to songwriting and recorded his first CD, Caged Bird, while at Wheaton College.

When Armerding performs with percussionist Alexander Young, they call themselves the Aeromatics, infusing their orchestral roots music with myriad flavors to create their own organically grown sound. Armerding describes it as, “Mozart through a loop pedal. No genre is ignored, no groove avoided, and no compression added.”

An optional fixed price dinner will be served at 6 pm. Tickets for the concert are $17. If still available, concert tickets can be purchased at the door, although many concerts sell out. Advance ticket purchase and reservations for the pre-concert dinners are recommended. For tickets or more information call 920.868.3517.
