A benefit for Doctors Without Borders, Minneapolis' DRONE NOT DRONES is part benefit concert, part art project, part community event.
Since forming in 2006, The High 48s have been making music that combines the soulful sound of classic bluegrass with a modern attitude, original songs and a wide range of influences far beyond Bill Monroe, the Stanley Brothers, and Flatt and Scruggs.
In a genre created and dominated by artists from the South, The High 48s were born and raised in the Upper Midwest. And in a music scene where playing standards is the norm, The High 48s are a band of songwriters who perform their own material in addition to the “festival favorites.”

Dinner and drinks service starts 1 hour before showtimes. Storytelling In Jazz, Cabaret This evening of songs born in the decade of the 1920s include the slang, the stories, the songwriters and the singers of that era that shimmied and bootlegged and celebrated leaving the Great War behind. Maud Hixson vocals Rick Carlson piano Hailed as “gently virtuosic” (All About Jazz), singer Maud Hixson is a devoted exponent of great songs, ranging from the classic Great American Songbook to the often unsung or forgotten compositions awaiting rediscovery. Maud is the recipient of four Artist Initiative grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board. Maud received a Next Step Grant from the McKnight Foundation in 2015 and her most recent Artist Initiative Grant funded a big band project in 2017. In 2016 she made her second appearance at Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center in a tribute to singer Sylvia Syms, hosted by Rex Reed and presented by the Mabel Mercer Foundation. After her Chicago debut in 2017, the Chicago Tribune’s Howard Reich proclaimed, “Hixson stood out as the biggest revelation at the Chicago Cabaret Convention”. Her newest recording, Permanent Moonlight: Songs of Sir Richard Rodney Bennett was released in September. In October, she appeared at Jazz at Lincoln Center as part of Rex Reed’s tribute to Doris Day. “Her vocal style is so warm, compelling and intimate—it’s clear she cares about the words and telling the story, with clarity and without artifice—almost a lost art these days.” –Michael Feinstein MaudHixson.com

Brandin Lea, the co-mastermind and lead voice of alt-rock legends Flickerstick, epitomizes a tale of meteoric ascent intertwined with a salute to rock and roll excess.
Hailing from Fort Worth, Texas, Lea rocketed from local stages to national notoriety in tandem with Flickerstick’s triumph in VH1’s renowned series ‘Bands on the Run’ in 2001, during which Flickerstick eclipsed 2000 rival bands. The victory ignited a fresh frenzy of touring, a major release of the acclaimed album ‘Welcoming Home the Astronauts’, and a chart-climbing single. Renowned for their unyielding tour schedule, incendiary live performances, and untamed antics, Flickerstick’s allure continued to shine brilliantly through the 2000s.
