Minnesota Bluegrass Band Barbaro Release New Single “Dark Turn of Mind”
The single will appear on Barbaro’s new EP, ‘Under the Covers’ to be released on November 12, 2021.
MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA – October 22, 2021 – Rising progressive bluegrass and Americana roots stars, Barbaro are pleased to announce the release of the single track, “Dark Turn of Mind”, today.
The first single track, “Dark Turn of Mind”, is a beautiful collaboration with Barbaro, Siri Undlin of Humbird on vocals, and Adam Roszkiewicz of Front Country on mandolin. The Gillian Welch song provides a compositional space conducive to Barbaro’s sound. Barbaro knew that Siri’s powerful vocals would produce a moving and original take on this song.
Giving back in the form of music benefitting Our Saviour’s Community Services of Minneapolis helps complete the full circle, to those in need. Humbird was pleased to lend a hand and be part of Barbaro’s EP “Under the Covers”.
The full EP “Under the Covers”, will be released on November 12, 2021, with all proceeds from the EP to benefit the charitable organization, Our Saviour’s Community Services of Minneapolis.
The Current 89.3FM, recently debuted the new single, “Dark Turn of Mind”, with host, Mike Pengra featuring it on the Radio Heartland programming.
The concept behind “Under the Covers” is one of camaraderie and respect amongst fellow artists and musicians from the Midwest and across the country. Barbaro felt compelled by the challenging events of 2020 to reach out to their close, musical friends and produce a dedicated collection of personally meaningful cover songs for an essential cause.
Recently, the Minneapolis Star Tribune featured Barbaro as a “‘Minnesota band freshening up the bluegrass scene’, and the new EP as a charity project to help Minneapolis recover from the chaos of 2020. All proceeds from it go to Our Saviour’s Community Services of Minneapolis. Said Shelstad, ‘It was important for us for it to be a charity doing very tangible, hands-on work in the community.’”
This is a special project for Barbaro, as Our Saviour’s Community Services in Minneapolis is a local organization close to their hearts. With so many social challenges and inequities coming to a head in the summer of 2020, Barbaro found it important to give back to their own community.
Our Saviour’s Community Services is a secular nonprofit in South Minneapolis that operates two programs: The English Learning Center and Our Saviour’s Housing. Welcoming students from many educational backgrounds, the English Learning Center offers free, culturally sensitive English education and citizenship preparation to adult learners. Our Saviour’s Housing offers person-centered, low-barrier supportive housing services and emergency shelter; it is a place where people can expect to find hope, community, and dignified services.
Just as so many people were impacted by the events of last year, Humbird’s new album was born from the emotion and cognizance of that time. Still Life, was created during the long months of 2020 – a time of isolation, and unrest in many forms in the outside world.
The women of Tico Time Bluegrass Festival took charge, threw down and dumped it out for an amazing weekend to kick off festy season.
