March 3 — The Glenna Family Band

The Glenna Family Band features three generations of country and bluegrass musicians: Gene Glenna, his son Scott, Scott’s wife Kim, and Scott and Kim's son, Matt Glenna. Hailing from Shafer, the Glennas play bluegrass, gospel and old-time music with a little country and blues thrown in.

March 24 — Molly Maher and Friends

American roots musician Molly Maher is the sort of performer you see once and never forget. An incomparable singer and songwriter, her singing is a fine balance of deep and soulful, somewhere between Lucinda Williams and Bonnie Raitt: twangy, lament-filled, guitar-driven country-folk with a blues swagger.

April 14 — The High 48s

Formed in Minneapolis, the High 48s were thrust onto the national scene in 2008 after winning the prestigious RockyGrass Bluegrass Competition in Lyons, Colorado. The band combines a healthy respect for bluegrass tradition with a desire to create original music true to their upper-Midwestern roots. Their current lineup includes three-time Minnesota State Flatpicking Guitar Champion Clint Birtzer, Rich Casey on bass, Eric Christopher on fiddle, Mike Hedding on mandolin and Anthony Ihrig on banjo.
