A conversation with Trapper in advance of his Ore Dock Brewing Company show September 16th

Trapper Schoepp is a folk musician from Milwaukee who recorded an album at Johnny Cash's cabin; he'll be playing this weekend in Marquette with his band.

His latest album Siren Songs was recorded at Johnny Cash's Cash Cabin in Hendersonville, TN. Some of his musical heroes were in correspondence here, as Johnny would read and dispose of letters from Bob Dylan at his cabin. In 2019, Trapper published a long lost song from Dylan called "On, Wisconsin."

Trapper's music is inspired and informed by the natural world around him, so it made good sense for the Superior Watershed Partnership and Land Conservancy to sponsor his performance at the Ore Dock Brewing Company. The show, featuring Trapper and his band, takes place Saturday, September 16th at 9 pm. Attendees will be able to take part in a free tree giveaway from the SWP.

Kurt lives in Marquette with his family and can’t imagine living anywhere else. He loves music, games, running, being near water, and a fine cold brew coffee.
