Hank Harris / Reuben Sinnema

Aug 3, 2015

This week's program includes separate sets from Hank Harris and Reuben Sinnema recorded at the 35th annual Sioux River Folk Festival last year at Newton Hills State Park.  Hank Harris can stitch rock and roll, country, ethnic folk, Americana, gospel, bluegrass, cowboy songs and so many other genres together into a delightful live show.  Of the flexible singer/songwriter, Black Hills Magazine said, "Hank may be the hardest working man in show-biz now that James Brown is no longer with us!"

Reuben Sinnema is a youth pastor in Southwest Minnesota.  He unleashed a set filled with fire and brimstone at last year's festival presented by the South Dakota Friends of Traditional Music.  Sinnema released "On to Glory" early in 2010.  It's a collection of alt/country and old time goodies that, like this set, shows off Sinnema's rebellious side.
