Sutter Brothers

May 30, 2019 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am

The Sutter Brothers—Ross and Bart—will present a 50-minute program of music and stories, poetry and song that explores the experience of Scandinavian immigrants, their ancestors, and their descendants. For more than thirty years, The Sutter Brothers have performed shows that integrate Bart’s original writing with Ross’ versions of traditional Scandinavian and American songs and tunes. “Sons and Daughters of the Northern Lights” will offer glimpses of early settlers, memories of a vanished village school, a lament for ghost towns, and celebrations of colorful farm folk and fishermen. The show will be specially designed to evoke memories and provoke curiosity about regional history, ethnic culture, and the presence of the past in our contemporary lives. This program is made possible with funds from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
