Lanesboro, Minn. – The band The May North will take the stage at the St. Mane Theatre at the upcoming “Lanesboro Live! Conversation, Comedy & Cool Jams . . .” show on Sunday, August 4 at 7 p.m. Host Damon Prestemon will also talk with writer Greg Brick about his book Subterranean Twin Cities. Always a favorite, house band The CBB Jazz Combo, led by Nathan Davidson, will provide excellent music, with Damon joining them on piano for a number or two. This will be the fourth show in the brand-new series of six “Lanesboro Live” shows this year, and Damon Prestemon is not afraid to try new things, listen to suggestions from his audience, and throw away what’s not working . . . on Sunday, August 4, Damon will welcome a well-known Lanesboro personality to co-host the show with him. Come see the show to find out her identity!



An accomplished musician himself, Damon Prestemon was thrilled to line up The May North band for the August 4 show. The May North has a rare knack for making sense of love, loss, long winters, longer highways and the shifting lines between urban and country living. The band is careful not to define itself as strictly “bluegrass” or “folk,” as the music finds its influences, lyrics, and keys deviate away from the norms of these genres. However, the musicians do employ the time-honored instruments of acoustic guitar, upright bass, banjo, dobro and fiddle to create an earthy and intricately-woven soundscape. Band members: George McCorkell (guitar and vocals), Stephanie McCorkell (fiddle and vocals), Matthew Byrnes (banjo), Chris O'Brien (dobro and vocals), and Jeff Swanner (upright bass).



Winner of the 2010 Heritage Preservation Award by the American Institute of Architects, Dr. Greg Brick is the author of Subterranean Twin Cities. The book is the very first comprehensive published account of the wide variety of subterranean spaces, such as caves and tunnels, under the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, set in a geological and historical context and based on more than two decades of research. The Star Tribune writes, "Subterranean Twin Cities is an enjoyable plunge, sprinkled with fascinating historical side trips, into a netherworld that most people wouldn't want to make a destination. . . Brick leads us to the buried guts of our cities and brings us back wanting more."
