multiple grammy-winning harmonica legend

Howard Levy & Chris Siebold

In back-to-back shows – the first in The Dunsmore and the second on the MainStage – two of the most astonishing musical polyglots take jazz fusion to new heights. Leading this duo is the multi Grammy Award winning harmonica-piano phenom Howard Levy (Bela Fleck & The Flecktones), whose brother in arm is steel guitarist extraordinaire Chris Siebold. Marked by astonishing speed, playfulness and stylistic elan, these two are both masters and acolytes of free form and a wide range of world styles.

Levy unleashed more ideas in his opening solo than many musicians do in an entire set.

– On The Local Scene –


Lisa Wenger Band


Hot Buttered Classic soul

Ginger Commodore, Dennis Spears and Yolande Bruce help us kick off the month of August, singing soulful classics from the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s. Soul music, combining elements of African-American gospel, rhythm and blues and jazz… We’re guaranteed to have some hot fun in the summertime, since these three local sweethearts, who’ve been singing together for years, know exactly where our bread is buttered!


Pat Donohue and the prairie home all-stars


Mary Jane Alm Band & The Tex Pisols


Jearlyn Steele Presents the pianist knows best

She’s a local media celebrity and a prominent member of one of this town’s favorite musical dynasties, The Steeles. So hand it to Jearlyn Steele for coming up with a show concept that will keep her on her toes if not her high notes. Tonight she’ll ask her good friend and fellow “A Prairie Home Companion” vet Richard Dworsky to pick the songs they’ll do on the spot. By request, no rehearsals, just songs they love, totally on the fly!


Robert Robinson Live ALbum Recording

Hailed as “the Pavarotti of gospel” by the Star Tribune, Robert Robinson puts his rapturous tenor in the service of a surprising array of music, from folk and rock and R&B all the way to the hymns of that little gospel church down the road. Tonight he records his latest album in front a live audience, taking us, as he always does, on a path of communal and personal renewal.
