4RTH COMING

6:30 PM - 10:00 The Return - Glenn Swanson Cookin' At the O Returns to Oldenburg


Moving to Minneapolis in 1972 from Duluth where he attended UMD, Glenn quickly became one of the Twin Cities’ leading drummers in both live venues and the studio. He was a staff drummer at Creation Audio and worked with Minneapolis’ leading recording icons, including Herb Pilhoffer and Chris Moon. He has been described by Billy Peterson as a 'musical chameleon - able to play all the bags'.

FEATURING Billy Peterson bass | the return


After leaving the Steve Miller Band, Peterson continues to work with various artists around the world. In 2012 he went on a European Tour with Ben Sidran. Later that year he co-hosted along with Cynthia Johnson the Funkytown Movie, produced by Megabien Entertainment, which showcases some of the Twin Cities´ finest artists and musicians. In 2015, Peterson as the bassist of Bob Dylan's album “Blood on the Tracks” received the GRAMMY Hall of Fame Award, which was inducted due to its significance for musical, social, and cultural history

FEATURING Ricky Peterson keyboards | the return


Ricky Peterson is best known for his now 20 year association with saxophone legend David Sanborn and for having, produced, written and played keyboards for Prince on and off since his early days on the Twin Cities scene (perhaps most notably producing and arranging the song "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World"). Playing on David Sanborn records since the mid 80's, he ensembled with and produced Sanborn on "Songs from the Night Before" and Prince on "Gold", "Emancipation", "Crystal Ball". Peterson also played a big part in writing and producing George Benson's "That's Right" CD.

This is just the icing on a career whose associations (either live or in the studio) read like a diverse pop and jazz trivia encyclopedia: Stevie Nicks, Bonnie Raitt, Billy Joel, Anita Baker, James Taylor, Mavis Staples, Joe Sample, Sting, Sergio Mendes, Brian Wilson, Ben Sidran, Rodger Waters, Rick Braun, Kirk Whalum, Phil Upchurch, Jimmy Buffet, Fine Young Cannibals, Steve Miller Band, GoGos, Paula Abdul, Boz Scaggs, Dave Koz, Lalah Hathaway, Sheryl Crow, Jonathon Butler, Bruce Willis, The Jets, Jermaine Jackson, Rhythm Syndicate, Chaka Khan, Robben Ford, Howard Hewett, Larry Graham, Tuck & Patti and John Mayer.

FEATURING Andrew Walesch piano and vocals | the return


Whether composing and arranging or appearing in settings ranging from solo artist to big band, this St. Cloud, Minnesota native, who criss-crosses the bold North playing dates big and small, is as respectful of his predecessors as he is ready to take a leap into the unknown and chart a new course.

In his monthly, sold-out shows with his 10-piece band, Walesch is a traditionalist and an iconoclast rolled into one. His audiences include jazz enthusiasts of a certain age, as well as a younger crowd compelled by his down-home insouciance, and the knowing irreverence of a tried-and-true American nightclub entertainer. “Although they are my idols, I don’t attempt to imitate the great pop and jazz artists of the 50’s and 60’s,” says the singer and pianist, “but I go for broke when we do our shows - vocally and musically - which is what they all did best and why they were in a class of their own. I take risks, but I’m from Minnesota, so I’ve got jumper cables in the trunk.”

His vocal and piano chops, along with his keen sensibility to find and interpret a great lyric, have lead to some great opportunities for Walesch, including an appearance on the nationally syndicated NPR broadcast Mountain Stage

FEATURING Jason Peterson DeLaire SAXOPHONES, KEYBOARDS and vocals | the return


Jason Peterson DeLaire is a member of the well-known musically talented “Peterson family” of Minneapolis, MN. He is proficient on keyboards and saxophone, as well as being a seasoned singer, songwriter and producer.
Jason is a well-rounded and versatile performer of classic jazz and R & B. He attended the renowned Berklee School of Music in Boston, studying film score and musical harmony. He has earned a reputation as a solid touring accompanist and ‘front’ solo performer.
Currently the keyboardist and saxophonist is in Michael Bolton’s band, he is doing the 2008 Bolton World Tour. Jason has many years of experience touring nationally and internationally with renowned artists such as Donny Osmond, Prince, Oleta Adams, Alexander O’Neal, Richard Marx, Solo, and Cherrelle. Jason has also done studio work with Alexander O’Neal, Prince, Donny Osmond, Bobby Brown, Ben Sidran, St. Paul Peterson, Michael Bolton and Flyte Time Productions.

6:30 PM - 7:30 PM Ingeborg von Agassiz MAIN STAGE


Ingeborg von Agassiz is a musician and visual artist based out of Duluth, MN.

Her name is a moniker she chose for herself to pay tribute to her roots. ‘Ingeborg’ is her great-grandmother and ‘Agassiz’ refers to the ancient glacial Lake Agassiz what once covered the region where she was born and raised in northwestern Minnesota. ‘Von’ is a German word which means ‘of’ and thus we have ‘Ingeborg of Agassiz.’ She modeled the name after two powerful women of Medieval Europe: Hildegard von Bingen and Eleanore of Aquitaine.

Ingeborg performs her original fully-formed songs with an array of electronic instruments. The Duluth News Tribune described her music as reminiscent of “children's music while also reminding you of "Gangsta's Paradise.”

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM Lanue PORCH STAGE


Feeling detached from her previously released work as years lapsed, Duluth, Minnesota’s Sarah Krueger set out to Hive, a small studio nestled near the river in her hometown of Eau Claire, WI. In the course of two separate sessions, (the first on the cusp of a long winter, and the second on the fringe of summer’s swell), Krueger assembled a cast of collaborators to help flesh out a collection of songs that would later become the catalyst for Lanue. Culled from the title of a poem that found its way to Krueger from a thrift store shelf, Lanue comes to us as a project that stands firmly in front of a fresh creative backdrop and boasts a more developed taste and sincerity than Krueger’s previous releases — both a welcome departure and anticipated return.

8:30 PM - 10:00 PM Rich Mattson and the Northstars MAIN STAGE


Rock, roll, country, folk, new/old wave, psychedelic rock, open minded richmattsonandthenorthstars.hearnow.com
