The Cosmic Western Duo - Jenna & Martin

  • Front Street Taproom 614 Main Avenue Fargo, ND, 58103 United States (map)

The Cosmic Western Duo met at Winfield Bluegrass Music Festival. They reconnected in the fall of 2016 when Martin offered to record an EP of Jenna's original songs. After a weekend of recording, they put their solo albums on hold and began playing and writing music together. A band was formed called "Playing For Horses" that played cosmic americana and classic country tunes by Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Hank Williams, Dolly Parton, Waylon Jennings. The band also learned a handful of Jenna & Martin's original songs. As the duo played and wrote more together, Martin's twangy, experimental telecaster guitar picking started blending with Jenna's simple, genuine songwriting to make a unique sound. It was somewhere in between country, rock, bluegrass, and gospel and they called it "COSMIC WESTERN". Their current show incorporates Jenna on tenor saxophone, banjo, and acoustic guitar and Martin on telecaster guitar, banjo, and multi kord pedal steel.
Come check it out. This will be a great night of music.
