Friday July 5 – 6:00pm
Built solidly around Hilmer’s no-frills songwriting and seasoned vocals, Ian Hilmer’s StageFright (IHSF) infuses appealing hooks with pathos laden lyrics. Fans of jam bands and indie rock will not be disappointed. Bands in a similar stylistic vein include: Wilco, the Tragically Hip, My Morning Jacket, Tom Waits, and Greg Brown.
In his 10+ years of playing hallway bars, festivals and theatres across the Midwest, Hilmer has garnered a reputation as one of Minnesota’s finest entertainers and songsmiths. “He gives the thinkers something to think about, the dancers something to dance about and the drinkers something to drink about.” says one fan. Highlights of his career include performances at the South by Southwest Festival (SXSW) in Austin TX, and past performances at the 10,000 Lakes Festival (10KLF) and Harvest Fest in Minnesota.
The members of Ian Hilmer’s StageFright (IHSF) have been involved in dozens of blues, rock and jam bands in the Midwest. Their tireless pursuit has earned Hilmer and company the ability to entertain rowdy bars, or captivate quiet audiences.
