Caravan du Nord Concert Series Celebrates Minnesota Musicians
In its third year, the Caravan du Nord concert series celebrates independent, Minnesota-based musicians. The tour starts Oct. 11 in Austin, with stops in Winona, St. Cloud and Detroit Lakes before ending in Red Wing on Nov. 16.
Each event features live performances by artists in a wide range of genres. Headliners include electro/rock group Night Moves at Winona's Page Theatre at St. Mary's University; alternative hip-hop artist Astronautalis at the Paramount Theatre in St. Cloud; and indie-folk band The Pines at the Historic Holmes Theatre in Detroit Lakes.
Prior to the concerts, the artists and other music industry professionals lead free workshops on various topics, like how to book gigs for your own band and in-depth conversations with the performers, followed by a networking social hour. Tickets for each concert range from $8-$12.
