Join us for a Pablo Streams performance from Chris Rosenau of Volcano Choir and Collections of Colonies of Bees & Chris Porterfield of Field Report.
Chris Rosenau is a guitar player and founding member of seminal instrumental post-rock band Pele, American music ensemble Collections of Colonies of Bees, and Indie rock band Volcano Choir with Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon. He has performed for over 20 years with these bands throughout North America, Europe, and Japan. His approach to the guitar takes the roots of Americana and filters them through modern composition and technology. Using multiple amps and a palette of looping effects, he's crafted a unique style that's as uplifting and melodic as it is bold and adventurous.
Throughout his music career, he has also written and performed rare solo compositions. This performance at the Pablo Center is no exception. Chris will be preparing a solo performance specific to the spirit of the evening, intended to meld with solo Performances by longtime friend and collaborator Chris Porterfield.
Chris Porterfield is a songwriter, singer and guitarist with idiosyncratic ideas of confessional folk music filtered through lenses both classic and contemporary. He is best known for his project Field Report which has released four albums and toured all over the world with artists like Jeff Tweedy, Aimee Mann, Counting Crows, and Emmylou Harris. Before planting roots in his chosen home of Milwaukee, Porterfield lived in Eau Claire and graduated from UW-Eau Claire. He streaked the Joynt once.
