Never stop getting better and never stop having musical and life lesson heroes. Sometimes they can be both. Look at Nahko Bear and Medicine for the People. Positive all the way.
From the beautiful and primitive Driftless Region of the Midwest comes
the American Roots duo "Medicinal Purposes". Inspired by the beauty
of the landscape and a desire to make true "roots' music, these two
seasoned musicians have blended their distinctive styles together in a
magical duo that is much more than the sum of its parts.
Scott Kerry Guthrie, guitarist and vocalist, started piling on the
mileage as a blues/rock performer back when Bob Seger first stared out at the great divide.
Cowgirl Pearl Olson has been using her
reigns and spurs in the rhythm section of a family bluegrass band, as
well as in the Driftless Region folk scene, with her stand-up bass,
well.... long enough to know better.
Together, these two wild-crafted
herbs have created a healing concoction of soul enriching sound.
Live shows are engaging, enthusiastic, and cover a
wide range of genres.
