UP UP/OVER

upup/OVER is a musical alter-ego of Mike Munson (Winona, MN) featuring acoustic, instrumental guitar with an interstellar focus. The space between chords mirrors the miles between earth and sun. upup/OVER allows one to orbit in a fog of romantic meditation, floating between a hopeful future and a comforting past. Observing the fluctuating distance between humankind and the natural world, at times such close companions and at others so far removed.

 

LIZ DRAPER

Upright bassist Liz Draper has played with everyone from Sub-Pop’s Grammy-nominated slowcore band Low to the Balkan folk group Orkestar Bez Ime, Righteous Babe artist Pieta Brown, Grammy Award-winning Okee Dokee Brothers, and Smithsonian recording artist folk troubadour Charlie Parr.  Liz grew up playing jazz and has a degree in classical bass performance. Her improvising led her to Brooklyn’s SIM (School for Improvised Music 2003). Liz is a 2019 Giant Steps Fellow (San Francisco). She is a 2021 American Composers Forum awardee for her solo work which can be described as “classicaldoomfolkjazz.”  Liz is currently touring with 2 time Grammy-nominated songwriter Iris Dement.
