The next installment of the Little White Church Sessions, “An Evening with Tough Old Bird,” is set for the AME Allen Chapel (508 Cedar Street) in Yankton at 7 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 9.

Tough Old Bird’s been described as “good folk for good folks.” Their music has a relatable weight to it that reflects back to their small town roots. They draw influences from traditional folk music that maps out dusty and sepia-tinted landscapes with its songwriting, as well as the modern context of rust belt melancholia. Americana, blues, indie and roots all blend together, adding up to a sparse and almost haunting quality. They possess the inherent sadness of Iron & Wine’s songwriting, the intricate guitar licks of Milk Carton Kids, and the persistent dancing banjo of the Avett Brothers. The homespun folk of Tough Old Bird has a dark quality to it, while ultimately serving as a testament to the Corrigan brothers’ synthesis of their surroundings.

This show will be run akin to a House Concert, so give generously, but only what is comfortable. Refreshments will be available.
