On Saturday, February 11th, Caravan du Nord will be at The Grand Event Center in Northfield with NUNNABOVE and Sarah Morris.
This multi-genre musical experience will be an unforgettable showcase of amazing Minnesota talent in the beautiful historic Grand Event Center in downtown Northfield. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund, and is sponsored by The Current and Explore Minnesota.
Caravan du Nord features Minnesota musicians of different genres and backgrounds from across the state. This year’s showcase series launched in October 2022 stops in St. Paul and Red Wing, and will continue January-March, 2023 with tour stops in Rochester, Northfield, Austin, and Duluth. Each tour stop also features a workshop and networking event for any local musicians. Learn more about all Caravan du Nord events at https://www.mnmusiccoalition.org/caravan-du-nord/

Sarah Morris - Growing up in a house where Brenda Lee, Johnny Mathis, and Bing Crosby crooned through the family speakers all season long, Sarah comes by her deep love for Christmas songs honestly. In her 16th year of Holiday Shows, Sarah is also celebrating putting that love for holiday music into a new little album. ‘merry little, light’ is a cozy, intimate recording of 4 classics and one original tune, meant to encourage cuddling under blankets, or contemplation underneath the glittering winter stars. 2018 Kerrville New Folk Winner; twice-named Midwest Country Music Organization’s Songwriter of the Year, Sarah Morris aims to document the glorious details of our messy, magical lives. Called a “country-leaning Norah Jones” (Star Tribune), Morris wields a keen eye and a captivating voice; offering poignant, relatable songs with timeless melodies. https://sarahmorrismusic.com/about/
