Free Downtown Entertainment: Derek James

Derek James

Event Overview

Derek James is a genre bending singer-songwriter who found his roots in La Crosse, WI, where he played in a stripped down string band. While living in La Crosse, Derek won the Great River Folk Festival singer-songwriter award. It was after this that Derek went on to found the band Raising Red, though he continued playing solo. Gritty americana with rocky undertones and at times a pop-influence that comes from being a 90s kid, Derek fell in love with the contemporary folk scene while traveling between Wisconsin and Minnesota.
