Pushing Chain

“Pushing Chain, out of northern Minnesota, gave a wonderful performance, a perfectly timed duo of guitar and fiddle topped off with exuberant vocals that left everyone in the room grinning. Give me more like this!” Suzanne Cadgéne, Elmore Magazine

“One concert highlight was Pushing Chain performing Gram Parsons’ ‘Song for You’ — such a strange and beautiful song and they nailed it.” Holle Brian

PushingChainPushing Chain, a folky-tonk duo from Minnesota’s north shore, features Boyd Blomberg on guitar and vocals and Adam Moe on fiddle and vocals. Their Americana-roots sound has been winning them fans throughout the Midwest, including a recent invitation to sing the National Anthem at the upcoming Twins/White Sox game. The duo features tight harmonies and a gonzo approach that keeps performances fresh and exciting, whether they’re playing original songs, covers of classic artists like Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, and Nina Simone, or fresh new takes on old folk songs.
