Big Dixie Swingers

Big Dixie Swingers

Winners of the 2017 band division of the MN Bluegrass and Old-Time Music Association’s Americana Roots Contest, the Big Dixie Swingers of New Orleans, LA, are a traveling musical collective headed up by fiddler Aaron Gunn and banjoist Elizabeth Vargas.

Often including Minneapolis singer/songwriter Jack Klatt and bassist Michael Carvale (of Davina & the Vagabonds) when performing in Minnesota, the Big Dixie Swingers gig with an array of highly talented players depending on the area of the country they’re touring. While rooted in the style of traditional Western swing, the group’s sound is also, as MBOTMA Magazine writes, “infused with showtune-pop sensibility and the kind of presentation that can only be learned by performing for your supper on the streets of the Crescent City.”

Entrance fee at door (no advance ticket sales)

Three-time "Best Blues Album" Grammy nominee singer/guitarist Ruthie Foster of Austin Texas has dueted with Bonnie Raitt, performed  with the Allman Brothers, and shared the stage with Susan Tedeschi. She's the recipient of Seven Blues Music Awards, three Austin Music Awards, the Grand Prix du Disque award from the Académie Charles-Cros in France, and a Living Blues Critics' Award for "Female Blues Artist of the Year."  

The Philadelphia City Paper writes of Foster, “The energy she brings with just voice and guitar is stunning. Ruthie's drawn comparisons to Ella and Aretha, but musically neither is really close. What she does have in common with Fitzgerald and Franklin is the irresistible blaze – it's impossible to look away, even close the eyes, for one second.” 

Tickets $15 general admission. Advance sales at http://aca.tix.com/ (no fees) and at door night of show (box office opens at 6:30 pm). 

This activity is made possible in part by the voters of  Minnesota through a grant from the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council, thanks to appropriations from the Minnesota State Legislature’s general and arts and cultural heritage funds.
