DSU Live Hosts Jami Lynn and Chris Champion

It was a great pleasure to welcome Jami Lynn and Chris Champion to DSU as a part of our ongoing concert series collaboration between DSU Live and the Madison Area Arts council. As in previous semesters, we transformed an auditorium into an intimate acoustic music venue, complete with staging and lighting. The DSU Live students did a fantastic job helping with setup, and Nolan Moser took the help as our lead live engineer.

Chris is always impressive on guitar, sharing both originals and covers, and showing off his stellar guitar chops. Jami followed with her South Dakota-inspired original tunes, sung with acoustic guitar and banjo. She was later joined by Andrew Reinartz on upright bass, and Dalton Coffey on dobro. The trio made for a gorgeous sound that perfectly filled the auditorium.

Once mixed and mastered, the recording will be submitted for broadcast on SDPB radio’s “No Cover, No Minimum”, and there also will be several videos produced from the evening. Below is the first one completed, a tune performed by the trio called “Red Fox”:
