Red Tail Ring is the Americana roots duo of Michael Beauchamp and Laurel Premo. Whether rendering a traditional tune or one of their original compositions, the duo infuses each song with musical imagination, haunting harmonies and instrumental artistry on fiddle, guitar, banjo, mandolin, jawharp and plain-old foot stomping.
Since 2009, Red Tail Ring has released four albums, and traveled increasingly farther in their musical ramblings, playing shows throughout the Midwest, and touring on both coasts. In the summer of 2011, the duo added Denmark to their list when they performed and taught as cultural ambassadors through the American Embassy.
Red Tail Ring's third full-length album, The Heart's Swift Foot (Earthwork Music, 2013), was met with glowing reviews from Americana and roots music authorities. No Depression writes "new music from Red Tail Ring is gorgeous," and The UTNE Reader describes the album as containing "fierce, masterful fingerpicking and poignant lyrical narratives." In addition to being featured on American Songwriter Magazine.com, The Heart's Swift Foot reached #6 on the FOLKDJ chart for June 2013. The new album presents 10 original songs with two acoustic standards that aim to stretch the confines of what two people can create sonically.
For Premo and Beauchamp, Red Tail Ring encircles their present and future - a place where expansion and creativity meet tradition, and thrive.
A returning favorite to the Flying Cat House Concert Series, award Winning songwriter Dan Weber has been described as “The classic mid-life overnight sensation.” A gifted storyteller and engaging performer, in 2014 he won second place in the prestigious Woody Guthrie songwriting contest, and in 2015 was honored to become a rare three-time finalist in the legendary Kerrville Folk Festival ‘New Folk’ competition.
An ex-Park Ranger, Eagle Scout, “recovering” Altar boy and lifelong Deadhead, Weber began performing at 40 and in a few short years was winning over audiences with energetic performances and hilarious stories from the roads he’s traveled. None other than legendary Folk troubadour Ramblin’ Jack Elliott said “I love Dan’s songs and he tells really good stories.”
Following in the long tradition of great singer-songwriters, Weber entertains audiences with inspired and energetic performances, telling hilarious, true stories from the many roads heʼs traveled. His debut CD “Ash and Bone” received accolades from American Songwriter Magazine, and the UK’s Maverick Magazine said: “4 Stars: The touch of a true Master Craftsman songwriter.” There’s also been recognition from DJ’s: “Hank and Jesus is easily the best folk song I heard last year” and The Victory Review magazine wrote “Weber's writing is as strong as any in the Contemporary Folk community.
In 2015 Weber begins a new chapter with “What I’m Lookin’ For:” a new CD of classic Americana that includes the stirring Folk tribute Oh Woody, Country-Roots on Cowboy Style, and the crowd favorite (I Deal with) Crazy ALL Day, an everyman’s anthem that had the crowd singing along when Dan played here last year!
Raised in Western New York State, Dan took a road trip out West twenty years ago that eventually landed him, for a time, as a Park Ranger at Canyonlands National Park. He now makes his home in Vancouver WA with his wife Diane.
