The Crane Wives Live in Concert

The Crane Wives, an indie band hailing from Grand Rapids, Michigan, will be performing live on July 15, 2024. Formed in 2010 by Emilee Petersmark (guitar/vocals) and Kate Pillsbury (guitar/vocals), the band has become a staple in the indie music scene with their unique blend of upbeat folk-influenced music and indie rock.

  • Doors Open: 7:00 PM

Initially performing to avoid waiting tables at a Chinese restaurant, Emilee and Kate’s lineup soon expanded to include Dan Rickabus (percussion/vocals), Ben Zito (bass), and Tom Gunnel (banjo). This addition enriched their sound and solidified their presence in the music scene. Their music, characterized by three-part vocal harmonies and an eclectic mix of instruments, failed to resonate initially in their restaurant gigs, but soon gained significant attention with their debut album, Safe Ship, Harbored, in 2011. This album was backed by a successful Kickstarter campaign and received notable praise from Colin Meloy of the Decemberists.

The Crane Wives continued to evolve, releasing albums such as The Fool in Her Wedding Gown (2012), Coyote Stories (2015), and Foxlore (2016). Despite the departure of Tom Gunnels in 2015, they pressed on as a four-piece set, known for their high-energy performances and deep lyrical content. Their discography, including both studio and live recordings, captures the essence of their energetic live shows and the emotional depth of their songwriting.

Having made a significant impact on the Michigan music scene, The Crane Wives have garnered local awards and recognition for their contributions. Their journey from performing in a restaurant to achieving national recognition exemplifies their dedication to their craft and the powerful connection they’ve forged with their audience.
