GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. — All summer long, KARE11 Sunrise is bringing you local and live music on Friday morning as the world begins to open back up and people can gather again. It's part of our MN Bands Together summer concert series.

Emily Haavik of Emily Haavik & the 35s kicks things off. They play harmony-driven, string-filled alt-country up and down I-35. The band released their debut full-length album, "Ease Back" in December of 2018, and their most recent single "Good Times" was put out during the pandemic. 

Watch Emily's live performance on our YouTube channel, and you can find more of their music here. If you're looking for the local bands Emily mentioned that she's been listening to during the pandemic, they are Dave Mehling and Jillian Rae
