2020 Line up:

August 5: Joey Ryan

Joey Ryan (of Joey Ryan and the Inks and Farewell Milwaukee) is no stranger to Landmark Center’s music programs. His smooth, pop-folk is the reason he is a popular and acclaimed local performer. 

August 12: Kashimana

Kashimana is a singer-songwriter with a rich soulful blues voice that soars through her original pop acoustic compositions.  Her songs are simple, catchy, and compelling.

August  19: Dan Newton (“Daddy Squeeze”),

Dan’s fresh approach to the much-maligned squeeze-box and his mind-boggling repertoire of both original and traditional material will change the mind of the most hardened accordion skeptic. Dan draws influences for songs and tunes from such sources as French Musette, Gypsy Swing, Cajun, Jug band, Tex-Mex and Cumbia.

August 26: Martin Devaney 

With seven full length albums to date, Martin Devaney, “the unofficial mayor of St. Paul”, is arguably one of the best known songwriters locally. Devaney is a former member of Heiruspecs, but is first and foremost a songwriter.
