Iced Over album cover

Join the celebration for the release of Tree Party's third album Iced Over: Thawing Minnesota's Local Lore, a year-long project born of researching stories and local history in smaller communities across Minnesota.  Minnesota State Arts Board 2013 Artist Initiative Grant recipient Joey Ford found rich inspiration in small town museums and historical centers across the state, producing songs about “Dorothy Molter: The Root Beer Lady,” “Wrinkle Meat: The 137 Year Old Man" and “Helmer Aakvik: The Old Man of the Inland Sea."  

Iced Over is a musical tribute to Minnesotans who have come before us and a celebration of their legacy.

Opening tonight will be singer-songwriter & poet Ben Weaver, and a solo set by retro musician Jack Klatt.
