Featured Artists on Saturday, March 13th:
Mark Joseph has energized audiences with more than two thousand live shows and five full length albums. His 2020 release of “The Musician and the Muse” showcases his expansive songwriting skills and ability to make the guitar sing or cry. In addition to a relentless solo career Mark is also the lead guitarist in the nationally acclaimed band hailing from the Twin Cities, The Big Wu. He will be joined by the incomparable Ryan Young, who tours the world as the fiddle player in the very popular Minnesota band, Trampled By Turtles. Ryan is also an accomplished producer and is a regular guest member of the band Pert Near Sandstone. This power duo has played several times before and the result was absolute magic!
