Live Music – Caravan du Nord Concert
October 29 @ 7:00 pm
Twins of Franklin
Twins of Franklin (Becky Shaheen and Laura Lou) perform original music that’s filled with traditional folk elements combined with dance, pop, and even anthem rock.
Freaque (Gabriel Rodreick) is a multidisciplinary artist writing eerie and transformative folk songs in a similar vein as Tom Waits.
Mayda’s original music has been described as undeniably fresh, swinging between pared-down acoustic struts, full-band funkadelic blasts, and electronic drumbeats and synth flourishes that would make the Purple One proud.
All Caravan du Nord events are free and open to the public.
The 10th Annual Caravan du Nord will visit Mankato on Friday, October 29 featuring daytime workshops and music industry networking opportunities for up-and-coming area musicians. Events include afternoon workshops in Performing Arts Center 101, a social hour at Johnny B’s at University Square, and an evening concert in the Elias J. Halling Recital Hall of the Earley Center for Performing Arts. The Caravan du Nord is an ongoing project of the Minnesota Music Coalition
Caravan du Nord events are co-sponsored by the Minnesota Music Coalition, 89.3 The Current, and the Minnesota State University, Mankato Performance Series. Financial assistance is provided in part by the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
