Rogue Valley to Continue New Century Sessions Series at Minneapolis' New Century Theatre, 11/8

Park Nicollet's support for local community artists and the healing comfort of music is an extension of its long-time commitment to the power of music. Park Nicollet offers patients music therapy at its Frauenshuh Cancer Center, Struther's Parkinson's Center, Melrose Center for eating disorders and Methodist Hospital.

Rogue Valley performs regularly at top Minneapolis/St. Paul venues including First Avenue, The Fitzgerald Theater, the Basilica Block Party and the Minnesota State Fair in addition to prestigious national bookings including the South by Southwest festival. They have worked with such influential artists as Spoon, Weezer, The Rural Alberta Advantage, Andrew Bird, Justin Vernon, The Jayhawks, Lucinda Williams, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Mason Jennings, Eric Hutchinson, Nellie McKay, Céu, Cloud Cult, Jeremy Messersmith and Haley Bonar.

In one recent, ambitious year, they wrote, recorded and successfully released four, full-length albums each tied to a changing season and telling a sweeping story of love, loss, regret and hope linked to American wanderlust. Rogue Valley continues to work on new songs and explore new directions for an upcoming 2014 release, delving into dueling surf guitars, bossa nova rhythms and ethereal synth while maintaining a textural layering of vocals and instruments.

As the band describes itself, "Imagine Ralph Waldo Emerson and Jeff Tweedy sharing a dugout canoe across a calm river; Jack Kerouac and My Morning Jacket sitting around a campfire; John Steinbeck and Fleet Foxes hitch-hiking along county roads and highways from coast to coast."
