Duluth Homegrown Music Festival begins April 30 with free family-friendly event
Jenny Armstrong, curator of the Duluth Homegrown Music Festival's Children's Music Showcase, joined Centerstage Minnesota.
DULUTH — For eight days at the end of April and early May, the Twin Ports celebrates live local music during the Homegrown Music Festival.
Duluth Homegrown Music Festival steering committee member Jenny Armstrong joined Centerstage Minnesota to talk about the Children’s Music Showcase that kicks off the festival. While much of the festival is 21-plus, the opening event is for everyone.
“The whole goal of it is that it's free, it's family friendly, and it's really a chance to bring the whole family out to get excited about Homegrown,” said Armstrong, who curates the showcase. “And to kind of let everybody be a part of it and really get the feel for it.”
This year's showcase is taking place at The Dovetail Café & Bakery in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Duluth, and will feature face painting, a ventriloquist and a young group of aerialists, alongside performances by Dan the Monkey Man, Steve Solkela’s “Overpopulated” One-Man Band, and more.
You can find a complete schedule of festival events at the Homegrown website.
