Concerts on the Pier is a quintessential Duluth summer experience. Local, Minnesota musicians play on the end of Glensheen’s 100-ft pier that juts out into Lake Superior. Concert goers pack the shoreline and arrive to watch the show via every watercraft vehicle imaginable.

 

Bill & Kate Isles
Bill & Kate Isles are a nationally-touring singer/songwriter duo based in Duluth, MN. In 1993, Bill was a rare survivor of Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Instead of ending his life, it jump-started his creative energies, resulting in a pre-COVID 150 show-per-year itinerary, presenting his profoundly meaningful songs. He is joined by his wife, co-writer, and musical collaborator, Kate. Her gentle presence, luscious vocals and intuitive harmonies have endeared her to audiences. Words like “Transcendent” and “Mesmerizing” and “Slapstick” are among the descriptions of their concerts and fans of all ages tell of listening to their albums over and over again. Their artistic motto is “It’s all about the audience”. This plays out as listeners find themselves in the songs, as the lyrics, carried by memorable tunes, dance through their imaginations, stirring up the dust of forgotten memories. They will be backed by Derek Birkeland on mandolin, violin & vocals and Sarah Birkeland on upright bass and vocals.
