Crossings is pleased to bring two Minneapolis based bands to Zumbrota this summer. The “furious folk” explosion of energy from Good Morning Bedlam counterpoints with eclectic instrumentation from cult rock band Marah in the Mainsail, promising a not-to-be-missed musical experience. Hold on to your seat at the State Theatre on July 27, 8pm.

Cinematic is the word most often used to describe Marah in the Mainsail's sound. Precise yet primitive jungle drums set the stage for the eclectic and powerful ensemble to sweep you away into their haunting world. Like oil and water, Durry's gravel voice alongside Mercedes's crystal clarity form a stirring, yet beautiful contrast. All being thrust forward by aggressive percussion, growling bass, and soaring brass. Their lyrics paint a thrilling picture of monsters and ghosts, murderers and thieves, love and guilt, and everything in between.

Since debuting their full length album "Thaumatrope" in 2015, the band has gained considerable notoriety in the Midwest, and continues to grow their exceptionally loyal fanbase across the country. They later signed with Minneapolis local Last Triumph Records, and released Thaumatrope on 12” vinyl. Poised to launch into the rest of the US and beyond with their brand new album "Bone Crown", Marah in the Mainsail continues to stand out from the pack, and bring their unique blend of musical influences to the alternative music scene.

Good Morning Bedlam is often mistaken as siblings, owing partly to their members’ similar looks: two curly, red-haired girls and two guys with Minnesota tattoos and piercings. But their cohesion goes beyond appearances. Their show is an explosion of energy with soaring harmonies, a banjo player that scissor-kicks in the air, a string bass that will shake your chest, and a beat that will have your foot stomping through the floor. One fan describes their music as “furious folk!” Every song is a unique twist on what is generally dubbed as folk music.”We want to surprise our audience from song to song. Rather than creating our music to fit a genre, we allow it to be an outpouring of our own stories and unique sound,” says Isaak, frontman of GMB. One moment they are blasting through a jubilant bluegrass tune, headbanging and careening around the stage, and in the next, Sophia, their fiddler is dancing the Charleston during what can only be described as a modern folk swing dance song. Just when you think you have Good Morning Bedlam pegged, they take you in another direction.
