Tuesday, June 11th -
Old Time Pals: Adam Granger, Bob Douglas & Pop Wagner
Their music is a blend of old-timey string band, bluegrass, swing, and old country, with a dash of originals thrown in for good measure. A highlight of their show is the comfortable--and usually funny--repartee that surfaces among the three between songs. You'll hear guitar, fiddle, mandolin and other creative instruments. Come and enjoy.
Ticket To Brasil Tuesday, July 14th, 6:30p.m.
TICKET TO BRASIL is a Bossa Nova, Afro-Brazilian Samba and Latin Jazz Fusion project created around a collective love for the celebration of rhythm and for the spirit of experimentation. The group was founded in 1998 by classical and contemporary jazz guitarist and composer Pavel Jany, and is based in Minneapolis/Saint Paul, Minnesota. They regularly perform at Summer concerts at Lake Harriet Bandshell and Minnehaha Park. PPERRIA neighbors and friends: you do not want to miss this one!! Dance, sway, or just sit back, and relax while listening to an intoxicating tapestry of elegant Bossa Nova, groovy, Latin Jazz, and hot Afro-Brazilian Samba. www.TicketToBrasil.com
