Concerts on the Pier – Feeding Leroy
August 2, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join us for an evening of Minnesota music on the shores of Lake Superior!
On August 2nd, Glensheenconcludes the 2017 free Concerts on the Pier series with Feeding Leroy.
Feeding LeRoy came out of the collaboration of Sonja and Lee’s original songs, blending into a unique project, with their songwriting and vocal harmonies as the focus of this bands sound. It’s kind of a family affair now, with brother Luke stepping in on the harmonica and long time friend and bassist, Adam Staupe on the upright bass, both adding their vocal harmonies, creating somewhat of a gospel undertone that acts as it’s own instrument in the band.
Free concerts have been happening at Glensheen every Wednesday night in July for many years. However, in recent years, all of the bands began playing on the 100-foot pier extending into Lake Superior. Each of the bands have Duluthian ties making the series a showcase for our region and Minnesota’s talent.
Concertgoers line Glensheen’s Lake Superior shoreline while kayakers and boaters enjoyed the free music from the water. Concerts on the Pier is a celebration of the lake, local bands, one of Duluth’s historic locations and Minnesota.
