No Pinching Centerstage MN - We've Got Green On!

by Doug MacRostie

Whether it's the amazing blues scenes that still holds strong from 30 years ago along the banks of the Mississippi in the Twin Cities, the authentic and raw roots/Americana music of Duluth and the Iron Range, the experimental rock and singer-songwriter movement in Bemidji or any of the other music strongholds in MN - we've got basically every base covered when it comes to musical variety - and Irish music is no different. We'll be having a St. Patty's Day special this week on Centerstage MN.

We'll hear a live recording of McInnis' Kitchen recorded in October of 2008 in the KAXE Studios. From Duluth, they perform Celtic music from Ireland, Newfoundland and Cape Breton. And Scott Hall talks with Paul Imholte of Ring of Kerry, an Irish music group from the St. Cloud area with sounds that range from the thunder of the Irish bodhran drum to the sparkle of the hammered dulcimer.

Plus music from Caleigh from Bemidji, Willowgreen from Duluth, MN legends Boiled in Lead and many more. Centerstage MN is Thursday evenings at 6, streaming live online at; or 91.7 Grand Rapids, 89.9 Brainerd and 105.3 Bemidji. All interviews are archived at and the show is rebroadcast Sunday mornings at 6.
