EAU CLAIRE — Minneapolis-based singer-songwriter Ben Rosenbush will present three free concerts at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Feb. 24-25. His solo shows in The Cabin, the Davies Center coffeehouse, will begin at 11:30 a.m. and 8 p.m. Friday, and 8 p.m. Saturday.

In 2009 Rosenbush and his band The Brighton released a well-received self-titled album of orchestral folk rock that evoked Fleet Foxes and Jon Foreman. He and his band toured around the country with artists including Jordan Riesgraf, Jeremy Messersmith and Sarah Groves. Rosenbush describes his group's sophomore album as "something vintage and something modern, and all rolled together into something new."

"These songs are full of stories," Rosenbush says. "They are stories that tell about love and tragedy, finding life and losing life, having a dream and also letting one go, coming home, leaving home ... I've found that sometimes the best way to walk into your own story is by walking into another's."

Cabin performances are free and open to all ages. Soft drinks, domestic and imported beer, specialty coffee drinks and tea are sold at all evening programs. Proof of age is required for alcohol purchases.

All performances are produced and managed by student members of The Cabin committee of the Student Senate's University Activities Commission. For a complete schedule, contact the Activities, Involvement and Leadership office, 715-836-4833, or visit The Cabin website.
