GRSF to host ‘Concerts on the Green’ (04/18/2012)
The Great River Shakespeare Festival will host its traditional “Concerts on the Green” this year. These musical performances take place rain or shine (the rain venue will be Winona State University’s Science Atrium) prior to GRSF’s theatre performances on Friday and Saturday evenings on “the green” outside Winona State University’s Performing Arts Center. The concerts are free and open to the public. Food will be available for purchase on the green, and picnicking is also welcomed. This year’s musical groups include:

Friday June 22 6 PM: Bayou Grenouille (traditional Cajun dance music)

Saturday June 23 6:30 PM: Chris Kendall & Friends (original folk music)

Sunday June 24 3:30 PM: Saint Anyway (Americana/stomp grass)

Friday June 29 6:00 PM: Dorothy Day Dreamers (melodic melancholic Americana)

Saturday June 30 12:30-7:45 PM: Dixieland Jazz Fest (Dixieland jazz)

Friday July 6 6:00 PM: Costello & Hipps (jazzy, bluesy pop)

Saturday July 7 6:30 PM: Simone Perrin & Friends (eclectic songstress & accordionist)

Friday July 13: 6:00 PM: Town Hall Trio (old time string band music)

Saturday July 14 6:30 PM: Glorious Revolution Baroque (pop music from the 1700s)

Saturday July 21 6:30 PM: Maud Hixson (jazz standards)

Friday July 27 6:00 PM: Hula Peppers (20s, 30s, and Hawaiian music)

Saturday July 28 6:30 PM: Johnsmith (renowned singer songwriter)

Friday August 3 6:00 PM: Daithi Sproule (premier Irish guitarist)

Saturday August 4 6:30 PM: Winona Sampler (variety of local talent)

GRSF leaders consider Concerts on the Green an essential component of the Festival’s ambience and the company’s connection to the community. This year’s concerts have been made possible through the generous support of numerous local donors, the efforts of the GRSF volunteer Music Committee, and by the musicians themselves, several of whom will perform this season for reduced fees.

The Great River Shakespeare Festival (GRSF) is a nonprofit, professional theatre company in Winona, MN. Dedicated to dynamic productions of Shakespeare’s plays, education and community outreach programs, and theatre training, GRSF has become an integral part of the Winona community by substantially contributing to the city’s tourism industry.
