Black River Revue

Ten years ago, Black River Revue got its start playing gigs at Bev’s Jook Joint in Superior and what is now Wussow’s Concert Cafe in West Duluth. These days the band travels to large festivals across Wisconsin and Minnesota with its “freshwater bluegrass,” even playing gigs in Alaska last summer. The four-piece group is led by singer and guitarist Adam Stariha and features Tim Leutgeb on banjo, Ian Kvale on bass, and Nate Hynum on mandolin. They deliver tight, insightful, original string songs and take occasional side trips over unexpected cover tunes. The Black River Revue catalog includes three studio albums and a live release from 2020, Gitchi Tracks Live, Volume One, recorded at Sacred Heart Music Center.
