Jami Lynn

In a few short years, folk, jazz, and blues songstress Jami Lynn has made her mark on the Midwest. Hailing from the Great Plains of eastern South Dakota, the singer/songwriter began performing folk and bluegrass music at the age of thirteen. It took little coaxing from her grandfather to make the transition from the audience to the stage, where old-time country, polka, and regional folk music reigned supreme. At the age of sixteen, Jami began accompanying herself on guitar and writing her own music. After high school, Jami Lynn attended the University of South Dakota majoring in Vocal Performance. It was during these years that she met up with members of Sioux Falls folk-rock band Snakebeard Jackson, and recorded her first album, Dreamer, as Jami Lynn & The Aquila Band.

“Fall Is A Good Time To Die” is the first album of Lynn’s comprised entirely of original songs, self-produced alongside her band, Dalton Coffey (dobro, mandolin) and Andrew Reinartz (bass). Lynn’s voice is reminiscent of Anaïs Mitchell’s, with a darker, wilder quality all her own, as if she were born to project her voice across the plains. With the power and dynamic of My Brightest Diamond, Lynn’s voice is complimented by her deceptively creative melodies. Jami is currently based out of Spearfish, SD.

Industrial Crash to Retail Cash: The Story of South Sioux Falls

Industrial Crash to Retail Cash: The Story of South Sioux FallsExhibit Opens at the Pettigrew July 24th

In Richard Franklin Pettigrew’s mind, Sioux Falls had agriculture and transportation; all it needed to really boom was industry. South Sioux Falls was Pettigrew’s idea that would lead Sioux Falls to that industrial future. The city would be an industrial suburb and would compliment Sioux Falls with manufacturing jobs and quality residences. Rail lines would connect South Sioux Falls to the businesses and shops in the main city. A transcontinental railroad would distribute its products to the region, nation and the world. Pettigrew would own the factories, railroads and land for residences. His name would rank with Carnegie, Rockefeller or Hill. Unfortunately for Pettigrew, it was a dream that would never come true.

Stop in to the Pettigrew Home & Museum during the R.F. Pettigrew Birthday Open House on Tuesday, July 24th to see the new exhibit: Industrial Crash to Retail Cash: South Sioux Falls in the first floor gallery. Admission is free!
