The CenterStage Concert Series is back! This collaboration between Northern Community Radio and The Reif Center is going strong into its third season. The third Thursday of every month, this series takes place in the Mary Ives Studio Theater at The Reif Center; a 200-seat intimate venue with a listening-room vibe where the audience is tuned IN to the musicianship on stage.

Trapper Schoepp and his brother Tanner visited the KBXE studios recently to tell stories on CenterStage Minnesota. The normally do that through music, but they also had some in just words, too. Look for a new album, Prime Time Illusionin 2019. Until then, you can hear the conversation by clicking the link below.

Nooky Jones brought some soul to Bemidji along with Fargo hip hop band, D Mills and the Thrills. KAXE/KBXE on-air volunteer, Shane Kingsland went to the show at Rail River Folk School, and had this review for us (DISCLAIMER: this may make you really upset that you missed the show. In that case, don't miss out next time!):

Starting as a duo with one acoustic guitar, The Sea The Sea has grown into a full blown band, out with a new album, From the Light.  The band, led by Chuck and Mira Stanley, came through northern Minnesota on tour, and stopped by the KAXE studios for an in-studio session.

"...That was sort of a mission statement, if we have one with our music, was to always remind people that they're not alone...alone in their struggles...alone in their joys..."  - Mira Stanley
