Late Summer Edition….MN State Fair and more.
2014 Minnesota State Fair
The Minnesota State Fair marks the beginning of the end of summer for the Gopher state. I have the pleasure of performing with 3 different groups at this year’s great Minnesota get-together. The Rockin’ Pinecones will play on the brand-new West End Market stage on Aug 21-22, sets at 2,3 and 4pm. Cafe Accordion Orchestra returns to Carousel Park as part of the MN History Center’s Big Wow Family Variety Show. That takes place from 1-2:30 on Sunday, Aug 31, History Day at the fair. On Monday Sept 1, Daddy Squeeze will appear with 2 crazy-genius guitar gurus, Pat Donohue and Dean Magraw. They’ll be jamming in the Labor Union tent from 11am til 1pm.
