March 2015 Calendar for Download/Printing

March calendar detail

March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb, they say. We'll see about that, but along the way, enjoy a rich crop of St Patrick's Day shows (Solas, Boiled in Lead, Lúnasa), scads of local talent (Peter Wolf Crier, Chastity Brown, The Ericksons, Barbara Jean, Randy Sabien), and a couple of high-powered Cuban acts (Charanga Tropical with some very special guests, Ibeyi). All this and more in March at The Cedar. Download the calendar, print it and stick it on your fridge, or peruse our online listings with plenty of videos available to bring you up to speed.

Residency Day #3: Still Having Fun

It is day three of the North America Super Stars Midnimo residency, and we couldn't be happier with how things are going. The performance last night at Elsie's as part of the Potted Meet Mondays series was fantastic. This morning, Hodan and Dalmar were interviewed on KFAI. Now we are at the Augsburg College chapel for their quarterly convocation. Here are the artists waiting to warm up and goofing around.
