On July 6th, Glensheen will kick off Concerts on the Pier, a free summer concert series, with the band Glitteratti featuring members of Trampled by Turtles.
Glitteratti is an acoustic/electric rock outfit formed in Duluth, MN in 2013. The band consists of Marc Gartman (Fever Dream, Two Many Banjos), Dave Carroll (Trampled By Turtles, Two Many Banjos), Tim Saxhaug (Trampled By Turtles, Dead Man Winter) and Kyle Keegan (Ben Howard, Hiss Golden Messenger). Their sets are a mix of Gartman originals and classic covers that range from The Everly Brothers to Pink Floyd.
Free concerts have been happening at Glensheen every Wednesday night in July for many years. However, last year marked the first time all of the bands played 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.
