The Gated Community w/ Mother Banjo


The Gated Community is your favorite Americana band for the 99%. Once thought of as a niche novelty Marxist outfit, the band has grown so much and is now swinging for the fences with its fifth and most ambitious album, The Honor and Glory of The Gated Community (official release in 2023). Based in the Twin Cities and formed in 2006 in Minneapolis’s storied West Bank neighborhood, The Gated Community is known for beautiful harmonies, multiple lead singers, virtuosic soloists, and gripping songs. They are incredibly proud to bring this album into the world after the collective traumas of the past three years—including the pandemic, George Floyd’s murder and the subsequent Uprising, and the rise of fascism in America. Join The Gated Community for an evening of powerful music that will stir your spirits.

Mother Banjo Featuring Ellen Stanley on banjo and vocals, Mother Banjo is a New England-raised, Minneapolis-based songwriter. Called “an outstanding poet” (Inside Bluegrass), she was a Midwest Finalist for the prestigious Mountain Stage NewSong Contest and has been featured nationally on SiriusXM Radio and CMT.com. She has showcased at South By Southwest (SXSW) and the Folk Alliance International Conference and has been touring behind her latest album The Devil Hasn’t Won, sharing bills with such notables as Lucy Wainwright Roche, Grammy winning bluegrass legend Jim Lauderdale and The Gear Daddies’ Martin Zellar. Now she is getting ready to release her first original album in over five years.
