Ray Bonneville

Ray Bonneville

Acclaimed raconteur Ray Bonneville strips his bluesy Americana to its essentials and steeps it in the humid grooves of the South, creating a compelling poetry of hard living and deep feeling. Rich guitar and harmonica lines resonate over spare but spunky rhythms, while Bonneville's deep, evocative voice confesses life’s harsh realities. 

Often called a “song and groove man,” Bonneville began writing his own music after two decades working as a studio musician, playing rowdy rooms with blues bands, and living hard. He’s since released nine albums, won Canada’s Juno award and other prestigious honors, earned wide critical acclaim, and garnered an enthusiastic following in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.

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

The Barley Jacks perform original vocals and jaw–dropping instrumentals in a spirit of
excitement and fun. These masters of the fiddle, guitar, bass, and drum meld their divergent backgrounds of blues and bluegrass, classical and Celtic, R & B and bebop and inspire each other to create something entirely new. Frontman, fiddler, and mandolinist Brian Wicklund is joined by Mike Cramer on guitar, Keith Yanes on bass, and Joel Arpin on percussion. Virtuosity, magic, and a little danger combine to make every performance unique.

Tickets for sale at event only: $20 general admission. Schroeder Town Hall is located at 124 Cramer Road, Schroeder, MN 55613. View Map and Directions
