“ absolutely hypnotic listening experience."
– Folk Alley

Humbird (Siri Undlin) is a Minneapolis based singer-songwriter, poet, and storyteller inspired by the crystalline chill of her home state’s northern winters. Undlin twines experimental indie folk rock, environmental Americana, and orchestral compositions into lush landscapes of mesmerizing sound.

Released in September 2019, her debut full length album, Pharmakon, was received with remarkable critical acclaim and has amassed over 20 million streams since its release. After the release of her sophomore album Still Life (2021) she was chosen as the winner of the 2021 Kerrville Folk Festival’s song-writing competition and went on to teach songwriting at both Sisters Folk Festival and Rocky Mountain Folks Fest. 2023’s tour highlights included her First Avenue main stage debut, appearances at Sisters Folks Festival, Mile of Music & Rocky Mountain Folks as well as direct tour support for Watchhouse, Mipso and Indigo De Souza, collectively covering most of the country. Her third third full length album ‘Right On’ was released on April 12 and has been her loudest, most notable record to date.

A Humbird live performance is intimate and earthy, literal and metaphorical.  The band nimbly prances around the lilt of Undlin’s unfaltering fervent and haunting voice – the focal point.  Although the songs and stories hold their own, the embellishments the band supply add the perfect splash of timbre and color to deliver a dynamic and engaging performance.

The Ark’s Artist Spotlight Series is made possible with support from Ford Philanthropy. It is presented live, and also livestreamed on The Ark’s Facebook page.

Tonight’s show is FREE (nonperishables accepted for Food Gatherers).
