Adrian + Meredith

  • Adrian + Meredith Slider Image

In a city filled with country cowboys and sit-on-a-stool songwriters, Adrian+Meredith make a different sort of roots racket. More Than A Little, their debut record, finds the East Nashville-based duo putting its own spin on Americana music, roughing up the genre's edges with the rule-breaking spirit of punk, the vintage twang of old-timey folk, the sneer of rock & roll, and even the frenetic bounce of early Swing and Jazz manouche.

Both coincidently from the Detroit area, Adrian was raised on punk-rock in the DIY history of Washington DC, with a carnival barker's croon and an off-the-wall "clawhammer banjo" approach to the acoustic guitar. Meanwhile, Meredith was Michigan-music native who cut her teeth in the old-time music scene, where she played traditional fiddle and clogged. Since then, the pair's have been touring relentlessly, swapping harmonies, trading solos, and acting as co-pilots throughout their debut album, and US and UK tours of 2016 and coming 2017.

"Adrian+Meredith’s music produces a rallying cry from two road warriors who, after more than a dozen combined years in the music business, are too smart to play by the industry's rules and too enthralled to turn their backs."

This free event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff, Wisconsin Union members and their guests. Anyone can become a Union member.
