When country a cappella band, Home Free, was crowned season 4 champions of  NBC’s “The Sing Off,” their victory was by no means the beginnings of a career for the five country stars from Minnesota. Rather, it was a satisfying culmination of nearly a decade of hard work and commitment to a vocal craft growing in popularity.

Founded by brothers Chris and Adam Rupp during their college in years in the early 2000, Home Free had been perfecting their live show for years prior to “The Sing Off.” It was their experience on the road that carried them to a victory, swelling their fan base and bringing them homegrown country style into a national spotlight.

Home Free continues to entertain audiences with their high-energy show peppered with quick-witted humor that meshes Nashville standards with pop hits dipped in country flavor. Their debut Columbia Records release, Crazy Life, is in stores now and features popular covers of “Wake Me Up,” “Ring of Fire” (feat. Avi Kaplan) and “Your Man.”

Tickets are available at, at the Tickets 300 box office (300 Broadway, Fargo; open Monday – Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.) or by calling (866) 300-8300.

Lucinda Williams to Perform at Fargo Theatre

As a rule, you can divide music into three categories -- the kind that aims for the head, the kind that aims for the heart and the kind that aims for the hips. Forging two of those connections at once is pretty impressive, but connecting on all three? That’s a rare accomplishment indeed, one that Lucinda Williams manages on her 11th studio album, “Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone.
“Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone”, the first release on Lucinda Williams’ own Highway 20 Records label, is easily the most ambitious creation in a body of work that’s long on ambition. Over the course of two discs, Williams leaves no emotional crevice left unexplored, drinking deeply from a well of inspiration that culminates with an offering that overflows with delta-infused country soul.
Williams has been maneuvering down a path all her own for more than three decades, emerging from Lake Charles, La., (a town with a rich tradition in all of America’s indigenous music, from country to the blues) having been imbued with a “culturally rich, economically poor” worldview. Several years of playing the hardscrabble clubs of her adopted state of Texas gave her a solid enough footing to record a self-titled album that would become a touchstone for the embryonic Americana movement – helping launch a thousand musical ships along the way.
While not a huge commercial success at the time – it went out of print and stayed there for years – “Lucinda Williams” (aka, the Rough Trade album) retained a cult reputation, and finally got the reception it deserved upon its reissue earlier this year. Jim Farber of New York’s Daily News hailed the reissue by saying “Listening again proves it to be that rarest of beasts: a perfect work. There’s not a chord, lyric, beat or inflection that doesn’t pull at the heart or make it soar.” In calling it “a masterpiece,” Blurt magazine dubbed it “a discovery worth making and music that will live in your heart and mind long after the disk stops spinning.”
For much of the next decade, she moved around the country, stopping in Austin, Los Angeles, Nashville and turning out work that won immense respect within the industry (winning a Grammy for Mary Chapin Carpenter’s version of “Passionate Kisses”) and a gradually growing cult audience. While her recorded output was sparse for a time, the work that emerged was invariably hailed for its indelible impressionism -- like 1998’s “Car Wheels on a Gravel Road,” which notched her first Grammy as a performer.
The past decade brought further development, both musically and personally, evidenced on albums like “West” (2007), which All Music Guide called “flawless...destined to become a classic” and “Blessed” (2011), which the Los Angeles Times dubbed “a dynamic, human, album, one that’s easy to fall in love with.” Those albums retained much of Williams’ trademark melancholy and southern Gothic starkness, but also exuded more rays of light and hope -- hues that were no doubt imparted by a more soothing personal life, as well as a more settled creative space.
Those vibes come to the fore once again onDown Where The Spirit Meets The Bone.” While she stays very much rooted in the here and now, Williams also conjures up the spirit of classic ‘70s country soul -- the province of Dan Penn, Bobbie Gentry and Tony Joe White. The resulting warmth of tone gives the album a late-night front-porch vibe -- one that could be accompanied by either a tall glass of lemonade or something a little stronger, all the better to let the sounds envelop the listener like a blanket of dewy air.
“I didn’t set out to do a whole album of country-soul, but once I started working, a stylistic thread kind of emerged,��� she says. “It’s a sound I can relate to, one that’s really immediate and really timeless at the same time -- kind of sad in an indefinable way. It’s like something my dad said to me many years ago, something I wrote down and included in my song “Temporary Nature (Of Any Precious Thing)” because it was so profound to me -- ‘the saddest joys are the richest ones.’ I think that fits this album really well.”

Tickets are available at, at the Tickets 300 box office (300 Broadway, Fargo; open Monday – Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.) or by calling (866) 300-8300.

With the allure of a modern day outlaw, Gary Allan has won over fans, peers and critics with his signature blend of smoldering vocals, rebellious lyrics and raucous live performances. While becoming a force on the country music scene, Allan has remained true to his artistic voice each step of the way. His new single “Hangover Tonight,” co-written and co-produced by Allan, is impacting radio now with an album slated for later this year. His last album, “Set You Free,” topped the Billboard 200 (Pop Chart), a career first for Allan.  The album also made its debut at the top of the Billboard Country Album chart (for the fourth time in a row), and produced his fifth #1 country radio chart topper with “Every Storm Runs Out Of Rain.”  To date, he has sold over 7 million albums, been certified platinum on three back-to-back albums and gold twice. Allan has five #1 hits at country radio and nearly a cool dozen Top 10 hits to his credit.  He’s described as “dark and dreamy” in Entertainment Weekly, “soulful and rough around the edges” in Playboy and deemed a “maverick” by Rolling Stone.  
Growing up in Detroit, Jana Kramer is no stranger to rich history of country music, crediting one of her favorite memories to baking cookies with her grandmother while listening to Patsy Cline. The singer-songwriter is lighting up country music with her emotionally moving songs and sweet, country vocals, already selling nearly 200,000 digital singles in less than six months. Kramer’s single “Love” had a Top 10 iTunes debut, #1 Spotify Viral Country Song—making Kramer the highest debuting single since Taylor Swift in 20016. In 2013 she took home the ACM Top New Female Vocalist award. She’s also an actress, including starring roles in “One Tree Hill,” “Entourage,” “Private Practice,” “Friday Night Lights” and “Grey’s Anatomy.
SATURDAY, AUGUST 8 | PRIMUS with Dinosaur Jr.
$31.50 general admission lawn, $41.50 general admission benches and $51.50 reserved seating. Tickets on sale Friday, May 1, 2015, at 11 a.m. Jade Presents presale Thursday, April 30, 2015, from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.

"Tommy the Cat." "John the Fisherman." "Jerry Was A Race Car Driver." "My Name is Mud." "Wynona's Big Brown Beaver." Yessiree, Primus is responsible for some of the most cutting edge and original rock music of the 1990's. And now, the definitive Primus line-up - singer/bassist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde and drummer Tim Alexander - is back together and planning on getting the worldwide masses bobbing up and down in unison once more.
With most hard rock/heavy metal acts at the time either neatly falling into either "thrash" or "glam" categories, Primus joined a variety of underground bands that refused to be pigeonholed (and by the early '90s, had fully infiltrated the mainstream) - merging metal, funk, alternative, punk, country, roots rock, and experimental music, along with Claypool's penchant for witty and often humorous storytelling lyrics.
Building a large and loyal following first in and around San Francisco, Primus kicked things off with a string of releases that are now considered classic alt-rock titles - 1989's “Suck on This,” 1990's “Frizzle Fry,” 1991's “Sailing the Seas of Cheese,” 1993's “Pork Soda” and 1995's “Tales from the Punchbowl.”

Dinosaur Jr. is now widely recognized as one of the most significant American rock bands of all time; the sound they pioneered in the late-80s having permeated through the past 20 years. Preceding Nirvana by several years, they were instrumental in bringing the crashing sounds of lead guitar back to indie rock. It wasn't just their signature metallic haze that made an impression on listeners; their effects-laden guitars were wrapped around some of the best songwriting of the decade. The first three albums, “Dinosaur,”  “You're Living All Over Me” and “Bug” are cult masterpieces.

$35 general admission lawn, $45 general admission benches and $69.50 reserved seating. Tickets on sale Friday, May 1, 2015, at 11 a.m. Jade Presents presale Thursday, April 30, 2015, from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.

She sings the songs, and he plays them. Along the way, the union of Pat Benatar and Neil “Spyder” Giraldohas become one of the most successful in music history, and their legacy continues to be celebrated across the globe. The rock duo’s exceptional journey marks 35 years this summer. Benatar and Giraldo’s collection of hits include “We Belong,” “Promises In The Dark,” “Hell Is For Children,” “Love Is A Battlefield,” “All Fired Up,” “Invincible” and “Heartbreaker.”  The duo has scored two RIAA-certified Multi-Platinum albums, five RIAA-certified Platinum albums, and three RIAA-certified Gold albums during their storied career.

Night Ranger earned widespread acclaim with their multi-platinum album “Midnight Madness” (1983) which included their smash hits “Sister Christian,” “When You Close Your Eyes” and the anthemic “(You Can Still) Rock In America.” To Date, Night Ranger has sold 17 million units worldwide and boasts many platinum and gold certified albums.

Brooklyn-based alt rock band American Authors met at Berklee College of Music. After dropping out, the quartet caught the eyes of Canvas Records and released “Believer.” The song caught like wildfire and gained numerous spins on Sirius XM”s Alt Nation. The follow-up single “Best Day of My Life” reached greater heights in television commercials, becoming the theme song for the 2013 World Series, major placement in movies and landing the band No. 1 on Billboard’s chart of Adult Pop Songs in 2014. Self described as “laid-back dudes,” American Authors is comprised of Zac Barnett (vocals), James Adam Shelley (guitar/banjo), Dave Rublin (bass) and Matt Sanchez (drums). Together they hail from the four corners of country, each bringing their own influences and experiences to the writing table to create pop-flavored alt rock sprinkled with four-part harmonies, spirited lyrics and contagious optimism.

From hustling street performer on Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade to platinum-selling artist, it seems like yesterday that Andy Grammer was discovered. With his 2011 debut album, Grammer became the first male pop star in a decade, since John Mayer, to reach the Top 10 at adult pop radio on his first two singles, “Keep Your Head Up” and “Fine By Me” (selling more than 1.5 million downloads combined). While hard at work on his highly anticipated sophomore album, “Magazine or Novels” (due August 5), Grammer released “Back Home,” a joyously anthemic track that illustrates his knack for writing infectious, relatable songs that showcase his soaring voice.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 30 | HAPPY TOGETHER TOUR with The Association, The Turtles Featuring Flo & Eddie, Mark Lindsay (former lead singer of Paul Revere & The Raiders), The Grass Roots, The Buckinghams and The Cowsills.
$28.50 general admission lawn, $38.50 general admission benches and $58.50 reserved seating. Tickets on sale Friday, May 8, 2015, at 11 a.m. Jade Presents presale Thursday, May 7, 2015, from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.

The Association is one of the most popular and successful bands to have come out of the 60s. They have sold over 80 million records. Their No. 1 hits “Never My Love,” “Windy” and “Cherish” have achieved standard status, receiving almost as much airplay today as they ever have. Other hits include “Along Comes Mary,” “Everything That Touches You,” “Six Man Band,” “Time For Livin’” and “Requiem For The Masses.” The Association has garnered seven GRAMMY nominations. 

The Turtles Featuring Flo & Eddie catapulted to fame with the 1967 mega hit “Happy Together.” Also known for 1965’s cover of Bob Dylan’s “It Aint Me Babe” the stirring “You Showed Me” and the intoxicating “Elenore.”

Mark Lindsay is the original lead singer for Paul Revere the Raiders. In 1965, like most American bands, the group emulated The Beatles, only with a more R&B feel. Their first hit “Just Like Me” led to regular appearances on Dick Clark’s “Where The Action” television show. Lindsay can be heard on the songs “Kicks” (No. 4 on Billboard), “Hungry” and the multi platinum “Indian Reservation” (No. 1 in 1971).

From 1967 to 1972, The Grass Roots set a record for being on the Billboard charts 307 straight weeks. They are one of only nine bands that have charted 29 or more Top 100 Billboard singles. They have sold over 20 million records worldwide. They hold the all time attendance record for a one act, the US concert of 600,000 people on July 4th, 1982 in Washington, DC. The current lineup and the Grass Roots legacy is in the capable hands of Dusty Hanvey, Larry Nelson, Joe Dougherty and Mark Dawson. Their biggest hits include “Let’s Live For Today,” “Midnight Confessions,” “Temptation Eyes” and “Sooner Or Later.”

The Buckinghams are comprised of original members Carl Giammarese and Nick Fortuna. Their horn sound turned Chicago’s “royalty of rock and roll” into “one of America’s answers to the British Invasion. Their No. 1 hit “Kind of A Drag” came in 1966, followed by “Lawdy Mis Clawdy,” “Don’t You Care” and “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy.”

The Cowsills, a sibling act that inspired the TV series “The Partridge Family,” rose to fame with the power pop harmonies in such songs as “The Rain, The Park and Other Things “ (No. 2 on Billboard), the platinum “Indian Lake” (No. 10) and the more psychedelic, title track from the musical “Hair” (No. 2).

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 6 | MERLE HAGGARD with Kris Kristofferson and Sturgill Simpson
$39.50 general admission lawn, $59.50 general admission benches and $95 reserved seating. Tickets on sale Friday, May 15, 2015, at 11 a.m. Jade Presents presale Thursday, May 14, 2015, from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.

The word legend usually makes an appearance at some point when discussing Merle Haggard; he’s also a Country Music Hall of Fame inductee, Grammy award winner, and most recently a Kennedy Center Honoree. As a performer and a songwriter, Haggard was the most important country artist to emerge in the 1960s. Haggard became one of the leading figures of the Bakersfield country scene in the '60s. While his music remained hardcore country, he pushed the boundaries of the music quite far. Like his idol Bob Wills, his music is a melting pot that draws from all forms of traditional American music -- country, jazz, blues, and folk -- and in the process, developed a distinctive style of his own.

It was Johnny Cash that encouraged Haggard to pour his prison experiences into lyrics. From that point on, Haggard stopped hiding the story of his past incarcerations and his songs opened a window on the dark life of prisoners and ex-cons.

Haggard has released close to 70 albums and 600 songs, 250 of which he has written himself. He has 40 No. 1 hits including “Hungry Eyes,” “Workin’ Man Blues,” “Okie from Muskogee,” “Mama Tried,” “The Fightin’ Side of Me,” “The Legend of Bonnie and Clyde,” “Pancho and Lefty” (With Willie Nelson) and “Big City.”

Kris Kristofferson has been making things happen his entire life. The former Rhodes scholar and Airborne Ranger left West Point after being inspired by songwriters Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson. After first struggling in Nashville, Kristofferson achieved success as a country songwriter at the start of the 1970s. His songs “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Help Me Make It Through the Night,” “Sunday Morning Coming Down” and “For The Good Times,” all chart-topping hits, he helped redefine country songwriting.

Kristofferson has acted in more than 70 films and received a Golden Globe for Best Actor in “A Star Is Born.” The three-time Grammy winner has recorded 27 albums, including three with pals Nelson, Cash and Waylon Jennings as part of The Highwaymen. He is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, Johnny Cash Visionary Award, BMI Icon Award and American Veteran’s Association Veteran of the Year.

Hailing from Eastern Kentucky, Sturgill Simpsonis consistently referred to as the "real deal" - the second coming of the true Outlaws of Country music, yet with an edge that has brought him attention from David Byrne and Dan Auerbach to Dwight Yoakam and Jason Isbell. Beloved by critics, Sturgill's Grammy-nominated sophomore album, “Metamodern Sounds in Country Music,” was featured on year-end "best of" lists at Rolling Stone, The New York Times, NPR Music, the Village Voices’ Pazz and Jop, American Songwriter, Stereogum and the Nashville Scene's 13th Annual Country Music Critics' Poll among countless others. Equally at home performing on an Indie rock bill, an Americana bill, or traditional Country, Sturgill has graced the stages of  he "Late Show with David Letterman," “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Conan,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” "Austin City Limits" as well as on the BBC’s “Later…with Jools Holland,” American Public Media’s “A Prairie Home Companion” and The Grand Ole Opry.

$19.50 general admission lawn, $24.50 general admission benches and $35 reserved seating. Tickets on sale Friday, May 15, 2015, at 11 a.m. Jade Presents presale Thursday, May 14, 2015, from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.

Hairball is more than just a band…Hairball is an unparalleled celebration of the all-time best in arena rock and an experience you’ll never, ever forget.

A band plays some songs, a music act puts on a concert...and then there’s Hairball—Hairball creates a one-of-a-kind event unlike anything else you have ever seen (or will ever see again). The lights, the sound, the smoke, the pyrotechnics, the special effects, the screaming hordes of avid fans...this is not a mere concert and there simply is nothing like Hairball.

The triple vocalist attack leads a two-hour mind-blowing and supernaturally spot-on homage to some of the biggest arena acts on the planet. The Hairball stage transforms into an entirely new rock spectacle over and over with Van Halen, KISS, Motley Crue, Queen, Journey, Prince, Aerosmith—and more—brought to life by men who live and breathe rock ‘n’ roll.

$32 general admission lawn, $45 general admission benches and $59.50 reserved seating. Tickets on sale Friday, May 22, 2015, at 11 a.m. Jade Presents presale Thursday, May 21, 2015, from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.

With his trademark guitar finger picking and unmistakable songwriting voice, John Prine continues to mesmerize diverse audiences with his humble poetry, describing often-overlooked crannies of everyday life. With immeasurable accolades, including two Grammys, and the distinction of being one of the few songwriters honored by the Library of Congress and US Poet Laureate, Prine is more than a musician…he is an American treasure.

Long considered a “songwriter’s songwriter,” Prine is a rare talent who writes the songs other songwriters would sell their souls for. Evidence of this is in the long list of songwriters who have recorded gems from his extensive catalog, including Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, the Everly Brothers, John Denver, Kris Kristofferson, Carly Simon Ben Harper, Joan Baez and many others.

“He’s so good, we’re gonna have to break his fingers,” Kristofferson once said after being justifiably stunned by a Prine performance. Bob Dylan remarked, “Beautiful songs…nobody but Prine could write that.”

Prine has released “The Singing Mailman Delivers,” a two-disc archival set featuring his earliest studio and live recordings dating back to 1970, one year before his premiere album. These tracks reveal a younger Prine as an honest and unassuming songwriter, writing words on his mail route by day and moonlighting as a folk singer in Chicago clubs at night.

Minnesota’s GRAMMY winning alt rock outfit Soul Asylum heads the 2015 Fly Over Tour. Formed in the summer of 1981, their triple platinum “Grave Dancers Union” album spawned the hits “Somebody to Shove,” “Black Gold” and 1994’s Best Rock Song  “Runaway Train.”
Today the band consists of Dave Pirner, Michael Bland on drums, Winston Roye on bass and Justin Sharbono on guitar.  They are currently putting the finishing touches on a new studio album to be released in 2015.

Only 19 years old, John Mark Nelson sings with a slow-smoked croon that belies his age, and he fills his lyrics with sharp, detailed observations of life and love in the Midwest. “Sings the Moon” is his most detailed, collaborative album of his young career. Members of Prince and Andrew Bird’s touring bands also appear on “Sings the Moon,” but Nelson is still the undisputed captain of this ship, steering his crew between intimate folk ballads and peppy, woodsy rave-ups with ease.

Minneapolis trio American Scarecrows’ first single, “Cheshire” off of their new album, Yesteryear (June 2014), best embodies the band’s current direction. The piece is a narrative masquerading as a pop song laced with fragile emotion and buoyancy of young love. The American Scarecrows’ songbook includes dynamic yet polished outcomes. Live on stage, the band showcases their earnest tales with crafty hooks and focused orchestrations.

Carnage The Executioner (Terrell Woods) is a hip-hop artist widely recognized for his mind-numbing lyrical dexterity and uncanny ability to compose musical symphonies with his mouth through beat boxing.

Almost three decades after winning a GRAMMY for Best New Artist and launching one of contemporary music’s most diverse careers, Bruce Hornsby, still makes joyful noise as he discovers clever and expansive ways to chronicle dynamic musical snapshots of his often generously collaborative journey.

Nothing better illustrates this than Hornsby’s communion with his longtime band, the Noisemakers. Expecting the unexpected, Hornsby & The Noisemakers’ live show showcases their freewheeling approach and years of rapport. Fargo fans will enjoy the addition of two new Noisemakers: Ross Holmes (fiddle/mandolin) collaborator with Mumford & Sons and Gibb Droll (guitarist) who jams with Brandi Carlile and Keller Williams.

Hornsby’s albums have sold over 11 million copies. His “The Way It Is” was the most played song on American radio in 1987. The prolific writer and three time GRAMMY winner’s career is often segmented into commercial, bluegrass, film scores and “by request” (favorite hits and influences). Numerous hip-hop artists, including Tupac Shakur, have even sampled Hornsby’s work.

Rick Springfield’s hugely successful Stripped Down tour comes to Fargo. Springfield’s Stripped Down performance includes music, storytelling and a special question and answer session with the audience. 

With 25 million records sold, a Grammy® Award for his No. 1 smash-hit “Jessie’s Girl,” and whopping 17 Top-40 hits including “Don’t Talk to Strangers”, “An Affair of the Heart”, “I've Done Everything for You”, “Love Somebody” and “Human Touch”, Springfield has no intention of taking his foot off the accelerator. “I put everything I've got into making records,” he says. “Sometimes people think they have you pegged but I trust my music show them otherwise.”

In early 2013, Springfield collaborated with The Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl on the song, “The Man That Never Was”, for the Sound City soundtrack, “Sound City:  Real to Reel.” At the 2014 Grammy Awards the album won for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media.  In May 2014 Springfield’s first novel, “Magnificent Vibration” was released marking his second publication on the New York Times Bestsellers List and he was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Currently, he is finishing production on the Tristar film “Ricki And The Flash” to be released in Summer 2015 and co-starring with Meryl Streep and Kevin Klein.
