The narrative sure has changed for this fine duo from Minnesota! The best-friends-not-brothers tandem of Justin Lansing and Joe Mailander took home a Grammy Award earlier this year for their woodsy masterwork Can You Canoe?, an album birthed while the pair paddled their way down the mighty Mississippi River for the whole of June 2011. This concert will be their last city show before embarking on their next outdoor songwriting adventure — a hike down the Appalachian Trail!
