South Dakota singer/songwriter Jami Lynn not only performs music from the Black Hills area, she has a deep connection to the landscape and culture of the Upper Midwest.

In fact, as a senior vocal performance major she wrote her college thesis on the subject.

Lynn is half of a folk duo that will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 15, at Cavalcade, 201 E. Aspen Ave., in Fruita.

In the entertainment listings from Cavalcade, Lynn and Dylan James are described as indie-rock, full-bodied gospel and traditional folk storytellers from Rapid City, S.D.

“Part of the music we play made up my thesis at the University of South Dakota titled ‘Early American Folk Music of the Upper Midwest,’” Lynn wrote in an email to The Daily Sentinel.

She began performing folk and bluegrass music at the age of 13, according to the biography at

“It took a little coaxing from her grandfather to make the transition from the audience to the stage, where old-time country, polka and regional folk music reigned supreme. At the age of 16, she began accompanying herself on guitar and writing her own music,” the bio said.

“What began as a typical ‘slap-it-together-and-call-it-good’ thesis turned into an intensive year of research, resulting in academic presentations in museums, libraries and historical societies and most importantly, the recording of ‘Sodbusters,’ her second full length album,” the bio said.

Lynn met James during the summer of 2012, and “their fortuitous meeting not only revealed their shared love of folk, bluegrass and jazz, but marked the beginning of an ambitious duo project harnessing Lynn’s powerful vocals and James’ first rate flat-picking skills.”

Reserve concert tickets by calling Cavalcade at 260-5413.
