February 14 special guest:
From vinyl to digital, MN Acoustic Music Master (Star Tribune) and Emmy award winning Michael Monroe is now in his fifth decade of performing nationally in concert, festival, corporate and educational settings. He has travelled many miles since his first paid performance for an audience of 4000 and recording his first demo 30 years ago in a “chicken coop” studio owned by Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul and Mary.
Michael’s unique creation of music leaves his audiences mesmerized as he blends his rich vocals, guitar, bamboo and glass flutes, combining musical styles of acoustic folk and jazzy reggae. Michael’s original music and compelling energy bring a powerful style that is as much fun as it is innovative…music and technology working together powered by creativity… and he recycles his music LIVE on stage as master LIVE Looper since 1990. His soulful performance delights and inspires.
What is Church of the Lost Souls?
It’s not really a church. And you don’t have to be lost or found to attend or tune in. But a new livestream concert series hopes to raise spirits and share the love beginning on Valentine’s Day. The Parkway Theater presents Billy McLaughlin and “The Church of the Lost Souls,” featuring members of SimpleGifts (versatile singers Kathleen Johnson, Karen Paurus, Amy Courts, Celtic multi-instrumentalist instrumentalist Laura MacKenzie) and cool Special Guests for 12 consecutive Sundays, beginning at 4:30 p.m. CST, February 14 through May 2, 2021. Special guests will play a 15-minute set mid-concert followed by closing numbers by Billy and the band. For more information on this new project and performances, click here!
