GENRE: Folk, Folk Rock, Americana 

MorningBird is an acoustic trio with an eclectic vibe.  MorningBird began as a duo in 2020 with singer songwriter Rob Wheeler and violinist Jill Burkes.  In 2023 the pair added upright bassist Josh Palmi to the group. The trio was quick to find their sound, with haunting harmonies and melodic string arrangements.  Their new album, Echoes in the Meadow  is out now.

“They're musicians from the Iron Range of Minnesota & right from the start their style's a refreshingly modernized throwback to duos & groups of the 60s and early 70s that carved out the more acoustic folk-storytelling songbook.”
