The Copoetics Bring A Taste of ‘Island Folk’ to Sioux Falls

The Copoetics are Dan Finch and Louisa Mae, two former educators here in Sioux Falls who met 18 months ago. The last year and a half has taken them on a life journey across the western United States and across the ocean to Hawaii where they spent several weeks writing several new songs giving them an island folk feel.

I first met Finch when he was a member of Lunar Funk Theory and also as part of a side project called Positive Vibrations, that would perform an evening of Bob Marley songs. He and Mae now write songs about real life experience, and music with positive, uplifting lyrics like “Be You” which you can watch the video of below.

The Copoetics have made a couple of appearances on The White Wall Sessions (heard Sunday nights at 7pm on B102.7. The half hour, TV White Wall Sessions airs Saturday nights at 10:30pm on KELO-TV) This weekend, they’ll perform several shows.

Friday at 6pm, they will be at the Downtown Block Party at 8th and Railroad (Cole Allen Band will headline at 8pm and will be Crash’s in studio guest Friday afternoon at 3) They will play the Sangria Sunday at Strawbale Winery in Renner Sunday afternoon from 1-4 and will be a guest on The Rock Garden Tour, which will record Monday night at Icon Lounge. They will also play the Old Courthouse Friday concert series at noon on Friday July 18.

It’s a good weekend to catch them as they’re off for Okoboji soon and then across the western states again with an eye on getting back to Hawaii again. The pair continue to grow as musicians and songwriters and find inspiration in new places and by listening to all types of music…on VINYL. These young musicians are definitely old souls and are bringing a fresh sound. Get out and catch one of their shows this weekend!
