Wolverine Farm Publishing and Wolverine Farm Publick House strive to be valuable resources for local performers. In order to better serve the music and artist community and to encourage individual artists to interact with one another and build a strong network, we present the Musician in Residence (MUIR) program. Each season we select four musicians who agree to three performances at the Publick House throughout the three month residency timeframe. These courtyard concerts are every Sunday at noon, (summer concerts are every Wednesday at 6pm) and are free and open to the public. We encourage tips and donations to the musicians.


2022 MUSICIANS IN RESIDENCE

Mystee Music

Introducing Mystee Music. Boston-born and Cardiff -bred, Mystee is the solo project of singer-songwriter and seasoned front woman Ilana Held. Drawing inspiration from love and loss in the face of a long spree of bad luck, Held weaves an American folk mentality into her hook-laden indie pop music.

Catch Mystee in the courtyard First Wednesdays, July 6, August 3, September 7.

Ian Foster

Introducing Ian Foster. Ian Foster is a Wisconsin born folk musician with punk-rock roots. Inspired by travels abroad, and excursions within, Ian’s lyrics are a fun and uplifting puzzle to be solved. The combo of Ian’s words and some smooth pickin’ will leave you wanting.

Catch Ian in the courtyard Second Wednesdays, July 13, August 10, September 14.

Spinster

Spinster is an indie-folk project fronted by Jo Babb (of folk duo Companion). Spinster’s sound weaves melodic guitar with soft vocals, maintaining emphasis on lyricism and storytelling with a folk-rock edge.

Catch Spinster in the courtyard Third Wednesdays, July 20, August 17, September 21.

DEBR4H

DEBR4H is a new wave/synth pop band based in Fort Collins, CO formed in 2018. Formerly performing under the name futurebabes, Jed Murphy gigged all the local venues in Colorado developing a unique synth pop sound influenced by The Human League, The Killers, Kate Bush, and Bruce Springsteen to name a few. 

They brought their debut EP, Taipei Rock City, to life in an ancient house in Fort Collins and have since continued to hone their dark and dreamy brand of synth pop with the release of two singles, “The Court of Richard II,” and “Cassi-0-Peia,” all produced by Oliver Mueller of Slow Caves. 

Catch DEBR4H in the courtyard Last Wednesdays, July 27, August 31, September 28.
