David Huckfelt is a singer / lyricist / activist and founding frontman of Minneapolis indie-folk cult favorites The Pines.
His new record "Room Enough, Time Enough" is a love letter across race & genre to the American West and the Indigenous friends & activists he has collaborated with for years. He has shared stages with artists from Mavis Staples, Emmylou Harris, and Greg Brown to Trampled By Turtles, Calexico and Bon Iver, and garnered praise from David Fricke (Rolling Stone) as one of the finest songwriters of his generation. In 2018 Huckfelt received the prestigious Artist-In-Residence award at Isle Royale National Park on Lake Superior, where in sixteen days he wrote the fourteen songs that would become his solo debut “Stranger Angels”. Beginning in 2014 with his collaboration with American Indian Movement leader & poet John Trudell, Huckfelt has worked with an array of Native American artists and activists including Keith Secola, Quiltman, Winona LaDuke and novelist Louise Erdrich in the fight for social justice and protection for Mother Earth. In thousands of shows across the United States, Canada & overseas, Huckfelt’s grassroots following has grown from small-town opera houses, Midwestern barn concerts, and progressive benefit events to national tours and festival stages like Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Edmonton and Calgary Folk Fests, and the legendary First Avenue club in his beloved Minneapolis home.
