ANNIE HUMPHREY - THE BEAST AND THE GARDEN tour is coming to Park Rapids' Jasper's Theater on September 29, 2017 at 6:00 p.m.


September 13, 2017

Annie Humphrey's new release tour: The Beast and the Garden will be a free event in collaboration with KKWE Niijii Radio through a generous grant from the Minnesota Art and Cultural Heritage Fund.

All songs on this record (except Geronimo's Cadillac by Michael Martin Murphy) were written during Annie's fight against Tar Sands Oil and the Line 3 pipeline/ abandonment/ reroute which crawls through Minnesota 1855 treaty lands threatening the lakes, rivers, wild rice, fish and plant medicines which Annie uses to sustain her family.

While standing against the Enbridge Oil Company for the past few years, Annie felt the distance between being an environmental activist and a singer/songwriter grow. "I had to get back to doing what I love. I love making music. I love my homeland and I am desperate to protect it from Enbridge Oil but I can take a stand with my guitar too. I think organizing and the activism is keeping the beast out of the garden. I think playing music for a while is me taking care of the tomatoes."

Also performing that evening will be The Long Hairz Collective (Detroit, MI) and Thomas X (Red Lake, MN). Thomas X is renowned in the Native American Community for his positive Native American Hip Hop/Rap music. The Long Hairz Collective along with Joe Reilly exhibit a style we could refer to as an acoustic rap mixed with a folk sound.
