Join us at The Cedar to welcome home Saint Paul musician, poet and bicyclist Ben Weaver. In July 2015, Ben will set off on his bicycle and stewardship adventure titled Surrounding Water. Ben will ride around Lake Superior with a vision to unify communities through song, poetry, and storytelling. Ben will act as a charter bearer to the Great Lakes Commons, using their visionary Commons Charter in his performances as an invitation to engage communities along the route in broad and inclusive conversations about fresh water.

This one night only performance will feature song, conversation, stories, photos and videos from Ben’s Surrounding Water trip. There will also be local bicycle and food partners with offerings and contributions.
