Welcome

Find Dawn out playing solo and with the bands Granger's Moonshine and First Rodeo.

Granger's Moonshine is: Debbie Cushman (also of Footfall and Wayward Creek), Shawn Patrick, and Dawn. We're all students of Adam Granger’s. A definition of moonshine from the 1800s describes either: a) great ideas; or b) a bunch of nonsense—depending upon the dictionary you ask. Either way, the name fits and stuck. We work with a variety of guitar styles including fingerstyle, flat-picking, and slide for a robust acoustic sound. We play folk, alt country, and old time, throwing in a jig here and there. On occasion, Adam joins in, adding flashy guitar leads and humor. Find us at local venues around St. Paul and occasionally a little farther afield.

First Rodeo is Dawn and Shawn, the name we use when we find ourselves playing as a duo.

Dawn has two albums available: Cactus on the Floor and A Braided Stream.
