The ever-growing Music in Mears concert series is back for its 11th year of free local music rocking Lowertown in St. Paul.
In 2004, Brian Horst founded the (then humble) music festival located in Mears Park. Its focus: presenting local music to Minnesotans. (You can read more about that in last year’s blog post.)
The event begins Thursday, June 12 and runs every Thursday through Aug. 12. Music begins at 6 p.m. and ends at 9 p.m.
Now, the lineup is out and it looks to have a variety of acts for the entire family to enjoy. Check it out below.
June 12: Galactic Cowboy Orchestra, Farewell Milwaukee

July 10: Fort Wilson Riot, Communist Daughter
July 17: Nathan Miller and Unstoppable Company, Sans Souci Quartet
