Growing up in Hibbing, singer and songwriter Paul Seeba realized early on he wasn’t going to make it onto the hockey team.
“I started playing the guitar instead,” he said. “It was a good move since I don’t have any aches from playing it — only enjoyment.”
“This is a record full of that space, steeped in the beauty of North American music, true Americana..”
Suspend reality for a minute; image that Springsteen hadn’t happened, or that he was touring the coffee houses of North America in a minivan, tip jar front and centre, now you have Paul Seeba.
The Stone Arch Bridge Festival returns to the scenic St. Anthony Main area on Father’s Day weekend. In addition to the showcasing of over 250 visual artists, the three-day fest will feature more than 40 music acts near the Mississippi River on three stages.
Hibbing native Paul Seeba has been a guitarist and songwriter for 30 years and his profession is teaching high school history. So it’s a natural that his songs reflect that background and are reflected in the music of his band called Mitchell Yards.
Paul Seeba has lived in the Como Park neighborhood for 15 years now, but when it came to putting together his first album, the singer/guitarist/songwriter turned to his Iron Range heritage for inspiration.
