There is good news for our community members who love music but have a hard time with crowds. Prairie Musicians is back with an all-new season, with regional talent performing live on the Prairie Public studio soundstage. It is on Friday evenings.
Prairie Public recognized that there were many talented musicians in our region, so the show has been started to appreciate our regional music. Prairie Musicians just premiered last week as season seven on July 7.
The musicians are selected based on recommendations from our colleagues, friends, and acquaintances of all the musicians. This television show is recorded live in Prairie Public’s Downtown Fargo television studio.
Prairie Musicians features a variety of genres, such as American folk music, pop, and rock. The next show will be on July 21 with rock and folk. Viewers can watch the shows online on Prairie Public’s YouTube channel, which means that you can also re-watch last Friday’s missed show. You don’t have to know anything about music, just “sit back and enjoy,” said Marie Offutt, Communications Manager of Prairie Public.
There is detailed information about the musicians and descriptions of their music. If viewers have suggestions for upcoming shows, they can write to the producer of the show, Barb Gravel, at email@example.com.
