Roots Rock/Y'Alternative Country/Americana/Blues (Mpls)

Looking to meet enthusiastic proficient hobbyists, ideally w/vox. Multi instrumentalists a plus.
All inclusive, high harmonies are sweet.
Focus is on deep track hip non-bro country/roots rock/blues, etc. Looking to jog memories and introduce/re-visit songs with good bones & beat to the masses.
Think of a truck stop jukebox reinstalled in a micro brewery.

You:
Don't care about getting paid, but might have been - or would like to be - occasionally.
Not interested in travel. Never had/finally surrendered any dreams of the big time.
Pro, reliable, gear and attitude.
Would like to perform maybe 6 -10 times a year at Driftwood/Shaw's type/wine bar/brewery venues.
Like to collaborate with easygoing friendly folks, enjoy getting good harmonies. So we'd have to rehearse.
Like a quiet stage and a tight show.

I play guitar, prefer rhythm if singing. Bass, and a little harp and mando with warning.

Song dump of the type of stuff I've seen draw good crowd response in the past. New tunes and deletes welcome.
