"GRASSROOTS CONCERTS are the nonprofit cultural offerings of a small, happy society of largely omnivorous but gentle folk dedicated to the preservation of live entertainment in vicarious times."


SPRING 2019 CONCERT SCHEDULE


FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2019 - ROE FAMILY SINGERS www.roefamilysingers.com

Led by wife and husband Kim and Quillan Roe, Roe Family Singers marries old-time sounds from barn dances, fiddle pulls, and county fairs with the rock and roll passion of youth. Every performance raises a ruckus, and Kim's award-winning clogging just adds to the show. "Roe Family Singers are the new wave of old-time." - City Pages



FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 2019 - LULA WILES www.lulawiles.com

Lula Wiles is Isa Burke, Eleanor Buckland, and Mali Obomsawin. Their new release What Will We Do on Smithsonian Folkways Recordings places the group squarely in line with some of its deepest influences, from the protest anthems of Wood Guthrie to the trailblazing songs of Elizabeth Cotton and Hazel Dickens. "The chemistry they bring to the stage is a joy to behold." - No Depression


FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 2019 - DAKOTA DAVE HULL www.dakotadavehull.com

Hailed by everyone from Dave Van Ronk to Doc Watson, Dakota Dave Hull's guitar style spans a wide musical geography to create an infectious, uniquely personal blend of jazz, ragtime, folk, blues, Western swing, and vintage pop. "One of the best guitarists in the world." - Dave Van Ronk




FRIDAY, APRIL 5, 2019 - SARA THOMSEN www.sarathomsen.com

Sara Thomsen grew up near Duluth, surrounded by a community and family that loved to sing, infusing her life with music. With a voice rich as the best Midwest soil, Thomsen "picks up the torch carried by balladeers of decades past: Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, Holly Near, Ronnie Gilbert, and Peter, Paul, and Mary." - Reader Weekly


FRIDAY, APRIL 26, 2019 - PETER MAYER www.petermayer.net

Peter Mayer writes songs for a small planet - songs about interconnectedness and the human journey, about the beauty and mystery of the world. Whimsical, humorous, and profound, his music transcends the everyday love song to reach a realm beyond, to a place of wonder at the very fact of life itself. "Mayer offers up everything you could ever want from a singer songwriter." - Dirty Linen
