  • John Fullbright

    For a small town, Okemah, Oklahoma, has produced some big talent. There's Woody Guthrie, of course. And now singer-songwriter John Fullbright is making his mark. He was already a favorite at festival campgrounds before he was even out of high school. Then, in 2009, he burst upon the Southwest music scene with a recording called Live at the Blue Door. The latest from this Oklahoma Music Hall of Famer is 2014's Songs (Blue Dirt Records).
  • Minnesota Opera Chorus

    An opera's chorus can become a crowd of villagers, an army, a host of angels; its members can sing just a little or have a considerable role in the production. The Minnesota Opera Chorus - from one of the country's most imaginative and innovative opera companies - is up to any challenge, including Minnesota Opera's current production: Giuseppe Verdi's Nabucco.
  • Lindsay Marcy

    For the better part of a decade, Lindsay Marcy has been a frequent presence on Twin Cities stages, from the History Theatre to Park Square to Theatre in the Round and others. A graduate of the University of Minnesota, Lindsay currently stars in 2012's Finding Home, by Minnesota filmmaker Chars Bonin. Next month, the movie will be part of the Twin Cities Film Festival.
  • Dean Magraw

    Composer, arranger, producer, guitarist Dean Magraw studied at the University of Minnesota and the Berklee School of Music in Boston. His first recording, Broken Silence, came out in 1994 and won the NAIRD award for Best Acoustic Instrumental Album of the Year.
