Jamie Kallestad is a songwriter from Cloquet, MN. A longtime guitarist and vocalist for the MN stomp-grass trio Saint Anyway, he is also one half of the Americana duo 90-Mile Portage. Jamie’s recent EP River Songs (2015) was inspired by three cross country drives up and down the Mississippi River. In The Belly Of The Feast (2017) is its prequel and opposite. Jamie currently lives in Boston, MA and was recently selected as a 2017 Artist-In-Residence for the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness in Upper Michigan.
This show will celebrate the release of a full-length album, Songs From The North Country, inspired by Jamie’s time in Kallestad, Norway:
In the fall of 2015 I felt compelled to find the small town of Kallestad on the west coast of Norway. I spent three months over there, working on farms and writing new music. This escape was necessary and lightening. I met some incredible people. I think that the songs I wrote in Norway are some of my best and now I want to tell this story.
