Summer Music at Plymouth Church

Tuesdays in July, 7 p.m., free!

July 8 Monroe Crossing—Named in honor of Bill Monroe, “The Father of Bluegrass Music,” Monroe Crossing dazzles audiences with an electrifying blend of classic bluegrass, bluegrass gospel and heartfelt originals. Their air-tight harmonies, razor-sharp arrangements, and on-stage rapport make them audience favorites across the United States and Canada—and at Plymouth.

July 15 Operetta!—There’s a gold mine of neglected charm, hilarity and beauty in the operettas of a century ago. Victor Herbert provides plenty of forgotten fun . . . but this summer, the intrepid James Bohn, Lisa Drew, Maria Jette & Vern Sutton (with Sonja Thompson at the Steinway) add some Mediterranean flavor with comédie musicale of André Messager and the G&S-influenced zarzuelas of Pablo Luna. Fear not: there'll still be silliness from Sousa and romance from Romberg . . . ça va? ¡Olè!

July 22 Jack Pearson is a contemporary folk artist whose original tales and tunes take the best of the traditional and transform it with a wit and freshness all his own. Jack performs on guitar, fiddle, banjo, spoons, jawharp and amplified toybox lid and has touched lives around the country fulltime since 1979. His recordings have won Parent’s Choice Gold, Silver Honor and Classic Awards as well as Pegasus and Storytelling World Honor. He is accompanied by Scott Malchow on bass.

July 29 The Copper Street Brass Quintet of Minneapolis represents the Evolution of the Brass Quintet. Born in Albuquerque, NM, in 2007, The Copper Street Brass Quintet (CSBQ) set up shop as a full-time non-profit in the Twin Cities in 2008 where, through their inventive concerts, engaging classroom programs, and full library of original and unique arrangements, they’ve transcended the traditional brass quintet, evolving it into something fresh.
