The acclaimed vocalist ventured from singing on street corners in Europe to dazzling audiences at the world’s most prestigious jazz festivals; from sneaking out to sing in gypsy encampments in her native France to acting on Broadway; from braving the notoriously tough audiences at New York’s Apollo Theatre to being called a “rising star in the galaxy of jazz singers” by the New York Times.

  • Friday, 7:00pm CDT   Ical event icon
  • The Squirrel Nut Zippers began their musical journey in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in the mid 1990’s, as a musician’s escape from the cookie cutter world of modern rock radio at the time. It wasn’t long before the band’s quirky mix of jazz chords, folk music, and punk rock leanings spread out of the region and attracted a national audience. An audience, a band onstage… both complicit in the desire to defy the world as we know, if only for a brief spell. “Let the music lead,” was always Jimbo’s motto, and continues to be.

Daryl Stuermer Duo
  • Thursday, 7:00pm CDT   Ical event icon
  • The inspiration for the duo came from Daryl Stuermer’s Godin LGXT “electracoustic” guitar; an incredibly versatile instrument that can shift from an electric to acoustic sound with the flip of a switch. Along with his classically trained Russian keyboardist Kostia, Daryl performs his own instrumental compositions as well as some of his favorite Genesis songs. The Duo configuration is an opportunity that allows for an intimate up-close encounter with two virtuoso performers.

A Tribute to Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Marie Knight

  • Jamecia Bennett and Rajane Katurah Brown (Star Tribune “9 Artists to Watch in 2019”) present an encore tribute to Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Marie Knight with the music from Park Square Theatre’s production of “Marie and Rosetta.” Bringing fierce guitar playing and swing to gospel music, Sister Rosetta Tharpe influenced rock musicians from Elvis to Jimi Hendrix and Ray Charles. It’s easy enough to look at Sister Rosetta Tharpe’s life and conclude that her innovative, genre-bending musicianship was “ahead of its time.” Throughout her rise, she was activated by and reactive to the sanctity and secularism that marked her world.
