Tonight On Local/Live: Blessed Feathers

Blessed Feathers

Blessed Feathers is the result of restless songwriting by Donivan Berube, Jacquelyn Beaupre’, and Jordan Knowles. Just a couple of folks who write and sing songs in the kettled forests of southeast Wisconsin. Together they furiously bang away at their small army of guitars, banjos, accordions, and whatever else they can get their hands on. Come see us in person. Shake our hands. We’d like that.” Blessed Feathers, the quiet but dynamic three-piece folk band from Milwaukee thus so introduces themselves, preparing listeners for songs with rustic remembrances of Wisconsin, picking up rural nostalgia on their deep-woodsy and open field-tempered sketches. Listen, *here*. From odes to Orioles and downtrodden blues-y ramblings, Blessed Feathers recorded their intimate and spacious collection of songs on back porches to  barnyards, living rooms to bedrooms. These smallish spaces whisper Blessed Feathers’ music into its listener’s ears, but lends lots of scope for daydreaming big with its fluid storytelling. Listen to songs from the new album, live, as the band plays WMSE’s Local/Live at 8 p.m. tonight. Tune in at 91.7 FM on your radio dial or stream online at Missed out? Check it out in the WMSE archives.
