Ray Bonneville

Ray Bonneville

Ray Bonneville strips his bluesy Americana to its essentials, steeps it in the humid grooves of the South, and creates a poetry of hard living and deep feeling. Rich guitar and harmonica, spare and spunky rhythms, and Bonneville's deep, evocative voice combine to give this “song and groove man” his unmistakable sound.

Since leaving his career as a studio and touring blues musician to write and perform his own music, Bonneville has released nine albums, won Canada’s Juno and other prestigious awards, and earned an enthusiastic following in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.

Tickets $18 general admission, for sale in advance at www.tix.com (search "Arrowhead Center for the Arts") and at door night of show.

Samite - Lessons of Humanity: What My Grandfather Taught Me

Samite - Lessons of Humanity: What My Grandfather Taught Me

Taught traditional flute as a child by his grandfather in Uganda, Samite Mulondo studied western flute in school, became one of East Africa's most acclaimed flutists, and is now known the world over for his musical talent and humanitarian work.
 
Samite has released ten internationally distributed CDs and has scored and appeared in acclaimed documentary films. In 1998 Samite was the subject of the documentary Song of the Refugee, distributed by PBS. In 2009 the film Taking Root: The Vision of Wangari Maathai, featuring Samite's original score, debuted nationally on PBS. Samite's humanitarian work began in 2002, with his founding of Musicians for World Harmony, an organization that enables global musicians to promote peace, understanding, and harmony among people. As a MWH ambassador, Samite travels to perform music and exchange stories with victims of war, poverty, and HIV/AIDS. 

While in Grand Marais, Samite will perform Lessons of Humanity: What My Grandfather Taught Me, his solo show full of stories and music that illustrate the resilience of the human spirit and the fundamental appreciation that "we are all the same."

Tickets to "Lessons of Humanity" are $15 adults, $5 youth ages 18 & under, for sale at www.tix.com (search "Arrowhead Center for the Arts") and at door night of show.

Bluegrass Masters Weekend - Master Fiddler Dan Kelley with Michael & Jennifer McClain & the Banjocats

Bluegrass Masters Weekend - Master Fiddler Dan Kelley with Michael & Jennifer McClain & the Banjocats

NSMA hosts its 29th Annual Bluegrass Masters Weekend at beautiful Lutsen Resort, with fiddle as the instrument of focus and master fiddler Dan Kelly instructing workshops and Michael & Jennifer McClain & the Banjocats performing in concert. Three days of jamming, a full day of fiddle workshops, and an evening concert by the band  make for a lively weekend in a relaxed setting where all are welcome. For full event details, go to http://www.northshoremusicassociation.com/bluegrass.php

About our instructor: Dan Kelly, who began playing fiddle in his youth, earned state fiddle titles in seven states before winning the Grand Masters Championship in Nashville at age 17. On the heels of that recognition, Dan played with Roy Acuff and his Smoky Mountain Boys for several years, followed by work and touring with Alan Jackson, Clint Black, Faith Hill, Steve Wariner, and Lonestar. During that time, he performed at the Kennedy Center, the Grammy, CMA & ACM award shows, the Tonight Show, Late Night with David Letterman, Good Morning America, and at Carnegie Hall. Holding fast to his love for old-time and bluegrass fiddling, though, he eventually returned to the genre and performed with the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band in the early 2000s. Dan joined the Banjocats with Michael and Jennifer McClain in 2016.  
About the band: Husband and wife, Michael and Jennifer McLain have performed in 27 states, from New York to California, plus Canada, and have appeared on the Grand Ole Opry, Kentucky Educational Television, Iowa Public Television, The Nashville Network, Country Music Television, RFD Television, National Public Radio, and the PBS show, Song of the Mountains, which airs on over 180 Public Television outlets across the United States.
