"Minnesota’s Acoustic Music Master" (Jon Bream/Star Tribune) and Emmy award-winning, Michael Monroe, presents an evening of favorite tunes by folk/pop singer-songwriter James Taylor. “You’ve Got A Friend” is the first song Monroe sang professionally in 72’ at Asbury Park in NJ for 4000 attending the music fest. Expect to hear the best of James Taylor, with songs like, “Fire & Rain,” “Shower The People,” “Close Your Eyes,” “Sunny Skies,” “Sweet Baby James,” “Handy Man,” October Road, and of course, “You’ve Got A Friend.” JT has always been a huge inspiration to him.

From vinyl to digital, Monroe is celebrating his 50th year performing acoustic music for his profession. He plays hand-crafted Seaton guitars, which are “works of art,” and made of 200 year-old reclaimed wood from the bottom of Lake Superior. His rich vocals and crystal/bamboo flutes showcase his signature mellifluous sound.

Michael Monroe returned to the Twin Cities following his 28 years on the North Shore of Lake Superior and he presented Log Cabin Concerts monthly in his cabin on the shore for the past 17 years which were featured on KSTP’s Jason Davis’ On The Road and in Lake Superior and Cabin Life Magazines. Monroe’s award winning instrumental soundtracks have been featured on PBS/CBC, Toronto Enviro/New York Indie Film Fests in the documentary, “Chased By The Light” presenting Jim Brandenburg’s stunning photography.
Gordy Johnson is Minneapolis-based (brother of bass ace Jimmy 30 years as Jame's Taylor's bassist!) has become a scholar of the form, equally adept at anchoring, soloing, and group discourse.
Noah Hoehn is known for his versatile and distinctive harmonica playing with his music being heard on NPR and MPR. His unique solo show featuring marimba, harmonica and Indian dhol drum, has been featured on PBS's “Minnesota Original”. The Minnesota native is also a three-time winner of the prestigious McKnight Fellowship for Performing Musicians. He continues to tour the country playing colleges and universities with his show.
