The Reddmen return after 11-year hiatus

The Reddmen

This interview posted above is from SDPB's daily public-affairs show, In the Moment, hosted by Lori Walsh.

The Reddmen are an indigenous power-pop group from the Black Hills of South Dakota. They formed in 1995, led by songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist Johnny Waylon Porcupine with drummer and sibling, Miyo One Arrow, and bassist Trevor Leo.

After an 11-year hiatus, the Reddmen are returning for a string of tours in the west, culminating with "Underground Native Music Showcase" on May 21 at Rapid City's Cave Collective.

The "Underground Native Music Showcase" will also feature the Wake Singers, Welby June, Friends of Cesar Romero, Arrow Evolution and more.

The event will also feature a MMIW presentation by Tasha Hislaw, and a Rapid City Scene History presentation by Mike Ray,

Johnny Waylon Porcupine joins Lori Walsh on In the Moment to discuss how the music scene has changed since the Reddmen last played in 2011.
