A reviewer for No Depression magazine wrote that If Natalie Merchant and Neil Young were to form a band, the result wouldn’t be distant from Sweet Wednesday’s harmonious mélange of folk, country, and roots rock.

Sweet Wednesday was formed nearly 15 years ago when Lisa Housman, a folk musician, met and began collaborating with Dave Falk, a rock and blues player. Their original songs are about everything from lost love to Boston’s recent historic snows to mermaids.

Sweet Wednesday is performing in Aberdeen at the Red Rooster Coffee House Thursday evening and Rapid City at the Firehouse Wine Cellars on Saturday. Lisa Housman joined Dakota Midday and discussed the music she makes with Dave Falk in Sweet Wednesday and the challenges of traveling with a toddler.
