We’re partnering with the Winona Women’s Resource Center to help organize the Winona LGBT community and have a presence there. Please consider joining us for an awesome evening of entertainment and organizing.
Winona musician Oliver Fox will open for transgender country folk musician Namoli Brennet at 7 p.m. on Friday, June 21, at Dib’s Cafe, 77 W. 3rd St. in downtown Winona. The event is free, donations are accepted.
Homegrown in Southeast Minnesota, Oliver Fox expresses her eternal love for the Midwest through folky lyrical harmonies and rhythmic chords. Her words are personally sincere and meant to relate with the audience, and her great appreciation of the region is illustrated in the debut album “Minnesota Nice!” You can view Oliver’s music at:
Dubbed “One of the best folk-rock artists in the country,” transgender artist Namoli Brennet has been touring and performing since 2002 when she hit the road with her first CD. 1000-plus shows and 200,000 miles later, her gritty, honest folk has attracted a large and extremely loyal fanbase. She’s self-released 10 CDs, including her latest, “Live,” which was recorded over the course of six months and 14,000 miles.
Her poignant, introspective and sometimes hard-hitting music has won praise and accolades from critics and fans alike, and Zocalo magazine calls her ”gorgeous and introspective.”
She’s been nominated for numerous OUTmusic awards and also is featured in the film “Out In The Silence” which details the struggle of a gay teen growing up in rural Pennsylvania.
Namoli spends eight to nine months a year touring and performing.
