: Shane Leonard: "Gary Indiana"

Roots is proud to premiere this new video from Shane Leonard.

Shane Leonard is a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter living in Eau Claire, WI. Recently he's toured the UK opening for Jeff Tweedy, worked with Field Report, Larry Campbell (Bob Dylan, Paul Simon), Justin Guip (Levon Helm Band), Sara and Sean Watkins (Nickel Creek), Todd Sickafoose (Ani DiFranco), Ben Sollee, Evan Ziporyn (Steve Reich, Bang On A Can), Zachariah Hickman (Ray Lamontagne), Robbie Lackritz (Feist), MIT's Balinese Gamelan, Berklee College Of Music's Ensemble Robot, and taught music through the Exploration School at Yale University, Augusta Heritage Center, and other programs throughout the US. Somewhere amidst all that he managed a steady output of solo work, releasing two EPs and a full-length, Westbound, under the moniker Kalispell. The debut album made many Best Of The Year lists, was profiled by Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa Public Radio, and featured twice as No Depression's favorite new music.

Now increasingly sought-after as a producer and player, Shane Leonard began his relationship with music very early, sitting-in on drums as a kid at jazz sessions in Milwaukee and Chicago. From there it was classical percussion lessons with players of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and legendary percussionist Jim Sewrey. After college he embarked on a journey across Appalachia to learn banjo, fiddle, and hundred-year-old songs in the presence of masters Clyde Davenport, Lee Sexton, Frank Lee, Bob Carlin, and Joe Newberry. 

Here he is performing "Gary Indiana" at the Miles of Music camp.
