Brother’s Jared and Joshua Killfoil hail from the Red River Valley of northeastern North Dakota, where they were raised on the traditional Americana music of their grandfather’s Pentecostal church. Their sincere songwriting and powerful vocal harmonies define the sound of bluegrass/alt-country upstarts Calamity & The Owl.
Calamity’s debut EP The Hot Trash Sessions is a collection of inspiringly original songs that marks the inaugural release of Jokertown Records. The band continues to tear it up with their live shows around the Twin Cities and the Midwest. Opening for contemporary bluegrass giants Trampled By Turtles and continuing to bring it every Sunday night at the Nomad World Pub in Minneapolis, Calamity shows no sign of slowing down. Check out the calendar to the right or the band’s facebook page for a current listing of shows.
