Auntie Em and the Tornadoes
Songwriter and St. Louis native Emily Higgins returns home from her home in the Missouri Ozarks for her third Focal Point performance, the first since 2012, this time with her full band, Auntie Em and the Tornadoes. The tornadoes are three original members of the Undergrass Boys: Bo Brown, Rick Davidson and George Horne. The band presents a playlist of Emilys Folk-Americana originals, most of them featured on her four all-original albums: Singing River, The House at the End of the Road, On the Square and most recently, a commissioned collection, 91 Acres. Shell even throw in a couple of newer tunes. Sitting in with the band on steel guitar will be Emilys brother, John Higgins.

Like her current collection of acoustic country folk, this 11-song record captures the sound and atmosphere of the Ozarks perfectly. Each song chronicles a different story from the 91-acre property that serves as the inspiration for the album. One moment youre following along as Higgins goes morel hunting, and then youre enjoying the view from Lovers Ledge.
