Please help us thank our many local business sponsors that are helping to bring these concerts to locations in greater Minnesota in 2016:
The High 48s
As traditional bluegrass bands go, The High 48s are about as non-traditional as they come. In a genre created and dominated by artists from the South, The High 48s were born and raised in the Upper Midwest. In a music scene where playing standards is the norm, The High 48s are a band of songwriters who perform their own material in addition to the “festival favorites.” The High 48s are relative latecomers to bluegrass who found a passion for the music after playing rock, alternative country, indie rock, punk and jazz. Since arriving on the Minnesota bluegrass scene in 2006, The High 48s have achieved national recognition, taking first place in the prestigious RockyGrass Bluegrass Band Competition in Lyons, CO, touring the national bluegrass festival circuit, and earning the respect of bluegrass musicians and audiences North and South.
The Eelpout Stringers
This Minnesota based old-time stringband call themselves “a bunch of old-fogies playing traditional Americana music.” The Eelpout Stringers shows are fun, plain and simple. But that’s this genre of music... just a bunch of toe-tappin’, head-boppin’ joy. As much as they like playing this music, they also like talking about it and entertaining audiences at the same time.This Minnesota based old-time stringband call themselves “a bunch of old-fogies playing traditional Americana music.” The Eelpout Stringers shows are fun, plain and simple.
