Music Under Glass Featuring the Dan Israel Trio

Marjorie McNeely Conservatory
1/26/2015
4:30 pm

"Writing and performing great songs for the last 15 years, Dan Israel is easily one of the Twin Cities’ un-anointed poet laureates, steadfastly making his way into the ranks of local singer/songwriter legends like Paul Westerberg. Whether it’s with a full band or as a solo act, his work contains elements of intimacy and, as he again demonstrates on his (2011 release), “Crosstown Traveler,” an engaging simplicity that makes his deep music accessible to any audience. His performances showcase these same qualities." – Minneapolis + St. Paul / Secrets of the City

Live music from some of the Twin Cities finest musicians perform in the Sunken Garden Sunday's December 28 - March 1 from 4:30-6:30. The music is also piped in to the Palm Dome and North Garden for your listening and strolling enjoyment. Beer and wine available to purchase.
