On Demand Events

Land of 10,000 Tunes

Nate Hance performed “Land of 10,000 Tunes” for the library on June 14. This program is available to watch on demand. Follow this link to view the performance. 

Come on a journey through the best of Minnesota’s musical landscape with performer Nate Hance. We’ll explore iconic works by the Andrews Sisters and Judy Garland and experience the state’s heritage through polkas, waltzes and marches. We will also shine the spotlight on Minnesota’s musical diversity through the last 60 years, including Bob Dylan, blues master Willie Murphy, Prince, and Owl City.

This project is made possible with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and the people of Minnesota for Library Legacy activities.
