HILL CITY | Miner Brewing Company promises a raucous evening of Tap Room entertainment Saturday, Nov. 11, with Sissy Brown and JonEmery Dodds putting on a free performance in celebration of the brewery’s fourth anniversary.
Festivities get underway at 6 p.m. with local musical Aaron Vidal opening the night.
Hailing from Oklahoma and currently residing in Kansas City — with stops in Spokane, Los Angeles, and Austin along the way — Brown is a classically trained singer whose music has progressively drifted back to the honky-tonk and outlaw country of her Midwestern roots. Since moving to Kansas City, she has released several demos and is in the process of recording her first full-length album.
Dodds is a nationally touring songwriter based out of the Capital Valley of Northern California. His music blends the sounds of country, blues, folk, cow-punk and rock together with familiar motifs such as highways, hangovers, heartaches and just a touch of humor to create his own rudimentary style of Americana roots music. With a handful of self released albums under his belt, he is making a unique mark on the independent Americana music scene.
Vidal grew up in Rapid City and has been playing and performing music for most of his life. As a teenager, he reluctantly moved from behind the drumkit to the front of the stage, where he found a love for singing and songwriting that he has been nurturing for more than one decade. He draws inspiration from a wide assortment of genres including pop, R&B, classic rock, punk and soul.
The musical performance isn’t the only thing to mark Miner Brewing Company’s fourth anniversary.
This weekend, the brewery re-releases its very first beer: Miner Mutt.
And on Sunday, Nov. 12, the Tap Room will host a free evening of Beer & Bingo from 4 to 6 p.m.
