Although the members of the Lowland Lakers currently live in Minneapolis, they all previously lived and played in Duluth. Guitar/banjo player Nate Case and guitar/violin player Haley Rydell met at UMD in 2004. Case met bassist Matt Donoghue a few years later. Events in life took them in different directions for awhile, but the three ended up living in Minneapolis. Over strong coffee and turkey sandwiches, Case and Rydell decided to create a new band. They lured Donoghue in to create a three-piece folk outfit with strong harmonies and rich instrumentals. They plan to release their first full-length album, The Mississippi is Between Us Now at Homegrown.
