Session SBP 2: Musician In Residence: Laura Sellner of Superior Siren<- Back
October 04, 2019
Join us as we welcome Laura Sellner to the beautiful, creative and supportive River Valley area of Wisconsin as this year's Spring Green Musician in Residence. The Spring Green Musician in Residence program was created to sow more support for the art of musicianship in Wisconsin. Spring Green has a variety of exciting ways to enjoy music, including The Shitty Barn, BobFest and Beatlefest at the General Store, local taverns/restaurants hosting live music, and the Rural Musicians Forum. But this community goes the extra mile. We don't only support art. We nurture it.
Administrative and financial support for the program is generated from volunteers, local performance venues, The Shitty Barn Sessions, Spring Green Area Arts Coalition, and Arts Wisconsin.
Laura Sellner is the singer-songwriter, guitarist, and manager of Superior Siren. Superior Siren is an all-female Eerie Folk project created on the shores of Lake Superior in Duluth, Minnesota. The music captivates listeners with alluring vocals, haunting melodies, and mesmerizing blends of strings and percussion. In 2014 Sellner showcased her first collection of songs with the Lotus in the Muck EP. Since then the musician has continued to captivate audiences with songs of unfeigned honesty and heartfelt emotions. In 2016 Sellner joined forces with cellist Rachel Gobin, bassist Nyssa Krause, and drummer Emma Deaner to craft a dark and raw folk sound. The band released the Superior Siren LP in January 2018, followed by a tour of the Midwestern United States.
