About Dunn Dunn Fest:

Harmonica Dunn is excited to announce the first annual Dunn Dunn Fest taking place in Chicago on February 20-22 and showcasing some of the best local and national acts in American music.

Just as San Francisco’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass showcases a range of acts that draw on different genres and style of music, Dunn Dunn Fest is hardly strictly Americana and roots music.

Headlining the festival on Friday night at Lincoln Hall is Yorkville, Illnois-based indie-folk outfit The Giving Tree Band. Supporting Lincoln Hall acts include Chicago’s The Shams Band and New Orleans’ Sam Doores + Riley Downing & the Tumbleweeds.

The second day of the festival moves to Schuba’s to host Michigan’s Frontier Ruckus and guests.

Opening the festival at Tonic Room, Nashville’s The Kicks, St. Louis' Kentucky Knife Fight and guests.

Led by enigmatic brothers Todd and "E" Fink, The Giving Tree Band are making their way to the head of a classy class of young American songwriters and performers. The Finks extended their brotherhood to all 7 members and started out with only a collective heart as big as the ocean. They now wield a wide array of instruments from acoustic and electric guitars, slide guitars and banjos to violin, mandolin and pedal steel . A band's band, they all live together, travel together and do everything as one family, harmonizing their voices and lives on and off stage. The Giving Tree Band is not reinventing but simply reuniting rock and roll. With their down-home style, they emphasize the virtue in their fierce virtuosity - approaching each note with integrity, each part with humility, each song with honesty and each show with gratitude. The most common word among reviews is "undeniable" in regards to the chemistry on stage, the energy in the room, and the feeling that something special is happening. With a rare combination of stirring musicianship and exemplary songwriting, the GTB wheel is in full spin and, like their heroes before them, it's also on fire.
