Front Porch Music Series Back for Another Summer!


The Murray County Historical Society’s Front Porch Music Series will kick off its 2017 summer season on Thursday July 20, at 7PM on the front porch of the Dinehart House in Slayton, Minnesota.

This summer’s lineup includes returning artists, local favorites and an award winning barbershop quartet.

Kicking off the summer events on Thursday, July 20th will be MapleStreet, a folk/bluegrass/rock fusion band from Slayton.  MapleStreet started as a father-son duo and soon developed into something bigger with the addition of new members.  MapleStreet will release their Let Them Eat Grass EP in July 2017.

On Thursday, July 27th, sit back and enjoy the Roots of Oak Band, a newly renamed band featuring Gale Otto, Glenn Anderson and Reid Kimball who play classic folk/rock/bluegrass/country melodies.  This band keeps it unique with a variety of instruments including guitars, banjos, harmonicas and dulcimers to keep your feet stomping throughout the evening.

Wrapping up the summer season on Thursday, August 3rd will be Kordal Kombat, an award winning a capella barbershop quartet.  This group has performed all over the North American continent and delivers a fun, high-energy performance that comes with a variety of great music and lots of laughs for all ages.

The Murray County Historical Society will serve popcorn and lemonade during the concerts and a free will donation basket will be passed during each concert to help pay for this great entertainment as well as ongoing updates to the Dinehart House.

In case of rain, the concerts will be held in the 4-H Building at the Murray County Fairgrounds.

The concerts are family friendly, so bring the kids, a blanket, or some lawn chairs, and enjoy a nice night under the big maple trees on the lawn.
