Rafe Carlson w/ Red Bearded Strangers + Jim & Ryan (Whiskey Trail)
Venue: Earth Rider Festival Field
Rafe is a country singer and songwriter whose journey began on small stages for the late-night bar crowd in his hometown of Duluth, Minnesota. As the crowd at his shows began to grow, he eventually took to writing and performing some of his own music. After some time performing in crowded bars, Rafe was eventually drawn to the vibrancy of Nashville where he met his producer Jeff Huskins (Little Texas, Clint Black). His ties to Nashville eventually provided him the opportunity to write with world-class songwriters, collaborate with Grammy award winners, and record a full-length album at Sound Stage Studios on Music Row.
