Bozeman, Mont.-based singer/guitarists Chris Cunningham and John Hermanson created some folk circle buzz in the late 1980s as Chris and Johnny but really took off a few years later when they adopted the name Storyhill and moved to Minneapolis. Each artist has found success as a solo artist, but the music they create together is special. After a decade break, the duo started recording together again in 2019 and bring their sweet harmonies and intuitive playing to The Hall at Fargo Brewing Sunday night. Tickets for this ID-only show are $25.
