Singer/songwriter Eilen Jewell is Boston-based, but don’t let that fool you. This country and blues-infused contemporary folk or alt-country singer, blessed with a hint of Billie Holiday, was born in Idaho, schooled in Santa Fe, lived in LA, and has performed all around the world. Her first album, Boundary Country, led to signing with Signature Sounds and a national release, Letters from Sinners and Strangers. Queen of Minor Key was released in 2011. The praise for Jewell grows with acclaim from American Songwriter, USA Today Popcandy, Pollstar and more. Joining Jewell on stage is St. Louis Americana roots band Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three who Spin Magazine called “best discovery” at Newport Folk Festival in 2010. This is another great WUIS Bedrock 66 Live concert sponsored by Athens State Bank, E & F Distributing, Illinois Times and WUIS.
