Closer to the Sky CD cover

“…a smart, crowd–pleasing mix of Celtic folk–rock and alt. country/Americana, with Cajun and Caribbean seasonings.” - Minneapolis Star Tribune

The Twin Cities’ Sweet Colleens have taken their genre-busting Celtic-Cajun Folk-Pop sound to new heights with their 4th studio release, Closer to the Sky. These 5 friendly, funny and fantastically talented multi-instrumentalists are hosting their CD release party at CJ.  As a special treat, all folks at the show get to take home one Sweet Colleens CD of their choice.

With their feet planted firmly in American-roots music, the Colleens bring a spirit of joy and adventure to the 11 original songs on Closer to the Sky, embracing the intimate melodies of traditional folk, crafting bold musical arrangements, and harnessing the power of modern rock.

The Sweet Colleens are Jeremy Greenhouse, Pete Sandvik, Dave Bade, Dave Bille, and Wolf Loescher. Their live show will take listeners on a wild musical world tour that will get your feet a dancin’: From the Great Plains to the beaches of San Diego, from smoky Toronto nightclubs to Cajun dancehalls, and from Irish pubs to a quiet street in Nordeast Minneapolis.
