Artist of the day: Jubal's Kin


Dig the Civil Wars? You’ll probably love Jubal’s Kin.

Longwood brother-and-sister duo Roger and Gailanne Amundsen play fiddle-fied, banjo-driven “Appalachia-infused Cosmic Americana,” as they call it. Their traditional roots and folk music is both foot-stompin’ (Raleigh + Spencer) and Sufjanesque (Eli, the Barrow Boy), all of it tipping a cap to inspirations like the Avett Brothers, Bright Eyes and Gillian Welch. On their self-titled 2010 album, the Amundsens worked with top-notch producers and studio musicians in Nashville; they’ve also shared the stage with artists like Over the Rhine and the Punch Brothers.

On Sunday, Jubal’s Kin will perform at Treasure Island’s fourth annual Bands on the Sand concert, alongside Cope, the Funky Seeds, the Human Condition and more. Look for them at 1 p.m. on the beach at 104th and Gulf; click here for details. And then on May 29, they’ll perform alongside Trinity River at Skipper’s Smokehouse. Tickets are $7-$10. Click here.
