The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

Longtime songwriter & activist friends David Huckfelt (formerly of The Pines) and Annie Humphrey (Leech Lake Ojibwe) have been teaming up for a decade in their shared mission to fuse hard-hitting songs and performances with social & environmental justice issues.  Each a revered songwriter and recording artist in their own right, David & Annie have teamed up for performances from a pontoon boat on the Mississippi River with The Indigo Girls to the acclaimed “Water Is Life” festival in Duluth, MN with Bon Iver, Ani Difranco, Hippo Campus and more.  Camping out at the intersection of storytelling, poetry, and folk song both traditional and contemporary, these two Midwestern singer-songwriters have eight records between them, hundred of performances all across Turtle Island, and a shared ethic rooted in community, activism, and the guiding inspiration of their time working with John Trudell.
