Pushing Chain's folky tonk music fills Crossings


ZUMBROTA — Hear the strong harmonies, kazoos and songs of Pushing Chain duo Boyd Blomberg on guitar and vocals and Adam Moe on fiddle and vocals. Join the entertaining duo as they perform their original songs at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 3.

Pushing Chain was formed in 2012 by Boyd Blomberg and Adam Moe. The duo, which has been performing together in various manifestations since 1997, plays roots and Americana music in a "Folky-Tonk" style. Pushing Chain plays original songs and some fresh new takes on old folk songs. The duo also features tight harmonies and a gonzo approach which keeps performances fresh and exciting, even if you have seen them before.

That gonzo approach leads to some interesting variations. You never know what might happen at a Pushing Chain show. They believe in happy songs, kazoos and sad songs; in performing songs they've never played together, and jamming with people just met; that a guitarist and a fiddler can cover Hendrix if they want to; that music can cause tears and laughter, sometimes in the course of one song; that there are still important songs to be written; and that a good band will help strangers share a table.

Tickets are $18 in advance and $21 day of show, available through Crossings. To reserve tickets, visit www.crossingsatcarnegie.com, call 507-732-7616 or stop in to Crossings at 320 East Ave., Zumbrota.
