Live at the Old Factory

  • Grant Wood wrote of the “rich funds of creative material” that Iowa holds in her landscape. It is within this uniquely Iowan landscape and culture that we find our own sound and poetry. Live at the Old Factory amplifies the very voice of Iowa—an eclectic song as diverse as a native prairie.

    Live at the Old Factory features musicians that live in Iowa and are active contributors to their communities. We sincerely believe our musicians have important and legitimate contributions to make to the issues our communities, state, region, and country wrestle with every day.

    Live at the Old Factory is supported by Orange City Arts Council with a grant from the Gilchrist Foundation.

Bonne Finken is a pop artist from Des Moines who broke through as the first female Iowa artist to crack the charts on a Top 40 radio station. She recently scored the music for the IPTV documentary FarmHer, and her music has been featured on television shows and in commercials. We are proud to have her here on Live at the Old Factory. 

Live at the Old Factory is Field Division, tonight, a folkwave duo from Des Moines. Their songs rise up around you like a warm seltzer, and in the midst of the fuzz is the clear voice of Evelyn Taylor. Get ready for a late night musical swim on tonight’s broadcast of Live at the Old Factory.
