Twin Cities-based singer-songwriter Frankie Lee made his latest record ‘Stillwater’ in his mom’s house in the Dutchtown neighborhood of Stillwater.
Recorded in three days during the summer of 2018, and it has since been buzzing about the globe after being released in May of this year.
The full album will be performed live with 8mm films from the late 40s early 50s originally made by storied photographer John Runk, a Stillwater native famous for his extensive collection of historic images depicting the lumber era of this region. At the time of his death in 1968, Runk was actively editing a film about Stillwater that was never finished…
In 2007 though, these films (more than 14 hours) were discovered in a Stillwater attic, digitally transferred, and became “An Ode to Stillwater: The 8mm Films of John Runk” made by Paul Creager that has aired on local public TV periodically ever since.
In early 2019, after Frankie completed mixing his album, he inquired about whether the Runk films could be paired with his soon-to-be- released album. With generous permission by the Washington County Historical Society, access was granted. Paul and Frankie collaborated on two music videos that were released this spring, receiving coverage in Rolling Stone, Mojo and the full album with film accompaniment streams online.
Join us at Sacred Heart for a performance of the entire album with film, and the first screening in Duluth.
Duluth-based singer-songwriter Sarah Krueger will open.
Doors at 6 pm. Show at 7 pm
Advance tickets are $15 and will be available at Eventbrite.com, The Electric Fetus Duluth and Globe News in Superior beginning at 10 am Friday, Oct. 11.
