Museum Garden Concert Series welcomes Whitehorse July 16

The North Dakota Museum of Art Garden Concert Series is back and in full swing. The series started June 25 with Chastity Brown, and had a great turn out and fortunate weather.

The next concert will be held Tuesday, July 16, and features the following two performers.

Opening act
Sam Rocha, assistant professor, Educational Foundations and Research

Headliner: Whitehorse
Whitehorse is a husband and wife folk rock duo hailing from Hamilton, Ontario. The couple maintained successful solo careers before and after marriage in 2006. In 2011, the two decided to form Whitehorse and released their self-titled debut album in 2011. Since then, Whitehorse has released 'The Fate of the World Depends on This Kiss' (2012), and 'The Road to Massey Hall' (2013). Whitehorse's live show is built on mesmerizing guitar work and smoldering vocal chemistry, but also brings much more to the stage with layers of percussion, keyboard and telephone receiver amplification, tangled like an embrace with the help of looping pedals.

Museum chef Justin Welsh and his team will be grilling up a storm, so bring your appetites. Root beer floats, bottled water, and sodas will be available for purchase.

Pack the kids up, bring a blanket or lawn chair, and spend a wonderful evening with great music for the whole family.
