Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear

When: Thu., Oct. 29, 7 p.m. 2015

Contrary to what one might assume, roots-folk rocker Madisen Ward and his mother Ruth haven’t been playing together all that long. The two teamed up to work on music together only about six years ago. “My mom’s been playing in coffeehouses since she was 19, and I started picking up music when I was 19 as well,” Madisen says. Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear, as they’re known, have recently attracted national attention — thanks in part to their appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman — and are now on tour supporting their engaging debut, Skeleton Crew.
