2019 Lineup


January 6 – Annie Mack
Annie Mack has built a reputation for writing meaningful, relate-able and inspirational songs. Live, she delivers her songs with power, soul and conviction.  A dynamic vocalist and charismatic performer, she takes the audience on a journey; from velvet lined melodic depths to exciting, gritty, full bodied church hollers.



January 13 – Chance York & Big Cats
Chance York (Slim Chance) is a Minneapolis-born writer, and emcee.  Spencer Wirth-Davis aka Big Cats is a producer, composer, and podcaster from Minneapolis. As a producer, he has worked with Toki Wright, Kyle “Guante” Tran Myhre, Sage Francis, P.O.S, BJ The Chicago Kid, Mac Miller, Lizzo, Chastity Brown, Eric Mayson, Chance York, and many others. He has also released three solo albums and performed throughout the country. As a composer, he has written music for Nike, CNN, Johnson & Johnson, Call of Duty, The Golden State Warriors, PBS, The Bush Foundation, and many others.



January 20 – Pushing Chain
Pushing Chain is a musical duo from Northern Minnesota, playing Folky-Tonk music up and down the shores of Lake Superior for years. Strong songwriting, tight harmonies, and a gonzo approach have been winning fans for Pushing Chain across the Midwest and beyond.



February 3 – King Wilkie’s Dream
King Wilkie’s Dream is a talented bluegrass band that has a wonderful energy and unique ability to engage the crowd. Soulful, bluesy, rootsy are only a few adjectives that apply to this group. Fun and entertaining.



February 10 – Matt Arthur & The Bratlanders
Matt Arthur is a Southern Minnesota blind man with a voice that calls to mind Johnny Cash, Leonard Cohen, and Nick Cave. The Bratlanders bring a time-worn authenticity to their rootsy sound — a Weird Old American blend of rustic folk, old-time blues, early country-western, indie dirges, and bombastic rock & roll.



February 17 – Lydia Liza
When Lydia Hoglund sings, her words convey the ache of an old soul. She unspools her melodies in big, booming somersaults that sound both effortless and ageless. Perhaps best known for the viral 2016 consent-themed re-write of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” (a collaboration with Josiah Lemanski that ended up spending time as the #1 song on Spotify, plus being featured by CNN, Time Magazine, Vanity Fair, Washington Post, People Magazine, and beyond), Lydia has also shared the stage with artists like The Goo Goo Dolls, Jake Bugg, Atmosphere, Dessa, Frankie Lee,  J.E Sunde, Dead Man Winter, Kimya Dawson, P.O.S, Chastity Brown, and many others.



February 24 – Lucy Michelle
Lucy Michelle is a songwriter as serious as they come taking us on a journey of American pop music in the classic sense.



March 3 – Mardi Gras with The New Riverside Ramblers!
The New Riverside Ramblers band brings high-energy Cajun dance music from the prairies and bayous of south Louisiana to the other end of the Mississippi River. The members of the band have been immersed in Cajun music for decades.
