2016 Musical Guest

Murphy's Midnight Rounders

Murphey’s Midnight Rounders has been described as a cross between the Grateful Dead and the Andrews sisters. With that visual in mind, the Rounders comes across as honest, refreshing and magickal. It’s a fresh musical take on the concept of liberty.

Brad Murphey has distinguished himself as a songwriter, arranger and guitarist. Original songs, such as, "Tom's Song" and "Soul of the Nation," are soulful fragments of lost dreams. Brad is a ‘by-product’ of Northwestern College Conservatory, where he focused on classical composition and conducting. He worked in theater as an actor and make-up artist, and has acted in musicals and musical comedies.

Teresa Frank started out as a dancer, performing in Dance Lines and Competition Disco In the last few years, Teresa has found that she has a talent for percussion, especially, Bodhran and Djembe and has recently expanded the band's sound with the addition of the Mandolin and bass . Her voice lends a silky texture to the Rounders’ harmonies.

Nancy Dawn Olson has taken Eau Claire by storm. She has the ability to sing many styles, from Blues to Country. She can soothe, seduce, mesmerize, and hypnotize you with her melodic stories. Nancy has performed for Acousti-Cabaret, The Last Waltz (as Joni Mitchell in 2012), performed at Summer Strummer, Eau Claire's Sounds Like Summer festival and various bars clubs and pubs.

Jeanette Atwood (Mom) never dreamed she'd get in touch with her latent 'hippie' roots. But, for the last 3 years, she's played washboard and hand percussion with a traveling band.

Murphey's Midnight Rounders has been in the top 10 Americana bands on the list for 4 years.
