Leo RondeauDown at the End of the Bar
This local songwriter from North Dakota has gathered impressive support for Down at the End of the Bar, including Brennen Leigh, Lisa Pankratz, and Shotgun Party's Jenny Parrott. Rondeau's jaunts into Dixieland ("Rapture") and country ("Had I Known") are effortlessly pleasing, as are natural forays off the beaten path of his alt.country style ("Rhinestones," "Weary Owls").
