Concerts on the Pier is a quintessential Duluth summer experience. Local, Minnesota musicians play on the end of Glensheen’s 100-ft pier that juts out into Lake Superior. Concert goers pack the shoreline and arrive to watch the show via every watercraft vehicle imaginable.
Superior Siren is an eerie folk project from Duluth, Minnesota. The music is inspired by Lake Superior and Siren mythology, and combines alluring vocals with haunting melodies. Superior Siren is led by singer-songwriter and guitarist Laura Sellner. Sellner debuted the project in 2014 with the ethereal solo EP “Lotus in the Muck”. In 2016 she joined forces with cellist Rachel Gobin, bassist Nyssa Krause, and drummer Emma Deaner to craft a mesmerizing blend of strings and percussion. The all-female band released a full-length self-titled LP in 2018, followed by a tour of the Midwest. In 2021 Superior Siren released another solo EP of original material titled “Kill Your Darlings”. The collection spotlights Sellner’s captivating voice and poignant songwriting. Laura Sellner’s writing is inspired by the human experience, the depths of the psyche, and the beauty of natural surroundings. She aims to promote healing through music in hopes of encouraging more compassionate communities. The band is a sisterhood of Sirens; radiating love, creativity, and empowerment for all. Superior Siren has supported internationally recognized acts such as Bon Iver, Low, Trampled By Turtles, Charlie Parr, Danny Barnes, and HALEY; as well as a special performance with DeVotchKa on the main stage of First Avenue. They continue to perform as a solo or full-band act throughout the region, and are in preparation for the next full-length album.
