Keystone Musical Heritage Series: The Connor McRae Trio featuring Bruce McCabe
October 5 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The Keystone Musical Heritage Series begins this fall with sponsorship from the Minnesota Blues Society and the Minnesota State Arts Board. The series features performances on the first Thursday of each month by established and emerging Twin Cities musicians. We kick off the series with blues musicians who have their own unique angle on a style of music that continues to breathe life into the local music scene.
This highly touted performance will be a frst for everyone involved. Connor McRae is the highly regarded drummer for internationally recognized band Davina & The Vagabonds, but has been doing a once-a-month gig with his trio at the Schooner Tavern near Lake and 27th in Minneapolis for four years. Connor happens to be a fine blues vocalist who pays homage to blues music from Keystone Musical Heritage Series New Orleans to Chicago and points in between. He is joined by bassist Ted Vig and guitarist Jeremy Johnson. Rounding out the line-up is famed Minneapolis pianist Bruce McCabe, who is known for his keen songwriting and musicianship with Jonny Lang, The Hoopsnakes, and the Lamont Cranston Band.
Concerts are free, but tips for the band are encouraged!
Keystone arts funding is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
