Americana Showcase Invades the Capital City

Americana Showcase Invades the Capital City

On Sunday March 7, The James J. Hill Library in St. Paul will inaugurate a unique celebration of American heritage, combining the extraordinary photographic exhibit America the Beautiful: The Monumental Landscape of dedicated environmentalist Clyde Butcher, with the Americana Showcase, a Southern Minnesota-based music series that honors the rich musical heritage of the American Midwest. This celebration will include a series of five music concerts which will be performed in the midst of 50 of Butcher’s epic photographic images echoing his love of the American landscape.

The event was conceived by Amy Seitz, founder of Exhibits Development Group, and Brandon Sampson, founder and host of the Americana Showcase, as well as lead singer of the band Six Mile Grove. “When Amy approached me with this opportunity, I knew it was a great match. We’ve been working hard in Southern Minnesota to connect artists with art-lovers. Collaborating with Amy, and EDG’s vision, gives us the opportunity to create a larger more diverse conversation between artists and the community. It should be pretty inspiring for all of us!” says Sampson.

The series begins Sunday March 7 at 7:30 PM, featuring Brandon Sampson (Six Mile Grove), Adam Levy (The Honey Dogs), Ben Kyle (Romantica), and Martin Zellar (Gear Daddies). Subsequent concerts will be held through May 16, and will include performances by Americana singer/songwriters and bands from across the Midwest.

A five-concert season pass can be purchased for $75; Individual tickets are $20 in advance, or $22 at the door. Purchase tickets at www.americanashowcase.com. Season ticket holders will also receive a discount on tickets to the exclusive after-show meet-and-greets with performers hosted by the Saint Paul Hotel at $40 for all five. Individual ticket holders can join the after-party for $10 per show.
