Episode #9 – Dec. 11, 2013

4fc66972c7876.preview-620A pair of anti-frac sand tunes — one earnest and one clever — from Winona acts Coconut & The Duke and Corey Koehler start off the ninth episode with a delightful conservationist kick. Music is also featured from cajun country crooner Kevin Anthony & The Twin City Playboys, earnest two-step indie folkers Very Small Animal, MPLS quirk-pop duo Bella Ruse, Mankato’s atmospheric folk rockers Good Night, Gold Dust, Winona’s roots music institution Beet Root Stew, and the rhyme spitting conscience of La Crosse Hyphon.

The frac sand songs were written and recorded as part of a “sand song contest” for the documentary film “The Price of Sand” by Jim Tittle. The filmmaker’s stated goal is to “find the real price of frac sand.  Not just in dollars, but in friendships, communities and the future of our region.” More on film and frac sand mining in SE MN and SW WI here: http://thepriceofsand.com.
