Pearl Olson and Lenny Wayne

Songwriters Showcase

Join us at the outdoor stage (weather permitting!) for a beautiful evening of music with Pearl and Lenny, two of our favorite songwriters.

Lenny Wayne, originally from the Pacific Northwest, has been in the Driftless Region for about 10 years. He has organized numerous songwriter events in the area, including the Songwriters Showcase at the Galena Center for the Artists, where he has been the host since its inception in 2014. He can be found regularly playing original songs and cover tunes as a solo artist and in several different bands, including his current collaboration with Pearl in Big Medicine.

Pearl Olson

Pearl, aka Cowgirl Pearl, has played music since she was young, and is at home on the mandolin, standup bass fiddle and guitar as well as with vocals and songwriting.

Her experience as a midwife and the mother of five as well as her years traveling and playing with multiple bands has given her songwriting and musical expression many flavors. Pearl always offers something new and always gives us a little surprise. Rumor has it she is moving to Hawaii, so be sure to catch her now, while you can.
