Museum Summer Concert Series

There is something new happening on the Iron Range! We are excited to announce the kick-off of our Museum Summer Concert Series with The Pines and Keith Secola as supporting act on June 22 at 6pm.

Called “quietly gripping” by legendary rock journalist David Fricke (Rolling Stone), Minneapolis-based The Pines sound like a Brian Eno for the Great Plains. Their native Midwest is their muse, and their songs explore the vast expanses around and above them, exploring the isolated farms and small towns of the plains and the array of stars that dot the night sky.  With Above the Prairie, the trio of David Huckfelt and brothers Benson and Alex Ramsey have crafted their most expansive album to date, melding their lush, layered sound with vivid, imagistic lyrics that celebrate the landscapes and history that gave birth to it.

"simply and eloquently stated sonic poetry...the real deal." -Acoustic Guitar
