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.

Tickets are available at JadePresents.com, 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.

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.

Tickets are available at JadePresents.com, 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.

When it transpired that a film script McMurty’s father had written was being directed by John Mellencamp, who was also its star, McMurtry’s demo tape was passed along and Mellencamp was duly impressed, serving as co-producer on McMurtry’s 1989 debut album, Too Long in the Wasteland. McMurtry also appeared ont eh soundtrack of the film (Falling From Grace), working with Mellencamp, John Prine, Joe Ely, and Dwight Yoakam in a one-off supergroup called Buzzin’ Cousins. McMurtry has continued to record, releasing albums in 1992 and 1995. Walk Between the Raindrops followed in 1998, and 2002 saw the release of Saint Mary of the Woods, his last for the Sugar Hill label. He signed with Compadre the following year, releasing Live in Aught-Three in 2004 and Childish Things in 2005.
