Live from Studio A: Laurel Premo

Laurel Premo is known for her rhythmically deep and rapt delivery of roots music, specializing in finger-style electric guitar, lap steel, fiddle, and voice. Her sound reveals a love of and complete submersion in heavy archaic roots—from the crossover of old-time and blues American traditions to darker Nordic sounds.

She is a Michigan-based artist who has been writing, arranging, and touring since 2009 with vocal and instrumental roots acts, and is internationally known from her duo Red Tail Ring.

Premo holds a BFA from the Performing Arts Technology Dept. of the University of Michigan School of Music, and has spent time at both the Sibelius Academy of Music in Helsinki, Finland and the University College of Southeast Norway to study traditional music and dance.

She has toured with Smithsonian Folkways artist Jake Blount and will be on the road later this fall with both Willi Carlisle and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy.

As part of Finnfest, Premo performed on Thursday, July 27 Pizza Luce in Duluth and will also be on a panel about Finnish American Folk Music on Friday, July 28th.
