Red House At Prairie Home Companion Celebration!
|The Prairie Home Companion 40th Anniversary concert was such a blast. We really enjoyed meeting and chatting with you out on Macalester College's Great Lawn on such a beautiful weekend.|
We were all treated to some amazing performances from The Wailin' Jennys, Robin & Linda Williams, Peter Ostroushko, Prudence Johnson, Pat Donohue, Butch Thompson, and Dean Magraw, plus many, many more over 3 days of some fantastic music.
Check out our photo album from the weekend on our Facebook page!

The Pines on Mountain Stage!
|The Pines recently appeared on NPR's Mountain Stage and their show will re-broadcast beginning this Friday, July 18th. You can click here to see when the show will broadcast in your area.|
The show also features performances from the BoDeans, Dead Man Winter, Jill & Julia (Jill Sobule and Julia Sweeney) and the Jonathan Rundman Acoustic Trio.
Listen to "Rise Up and Be Lonely" from the broadcast here!
|We've been getting a lot of questions about Barnfest, but unfortunately we have decided not to host the event this summer. We've heard from many of you of how disappointed you are and we truly do appreciate the feedback and support in making it such a success for the last five years! |
In the meantime, please check out Live from the Landmark Center this fall as well as other events throughout the year!
Eric Peltoniemi to Receive FARM Lifetime Award!
|Finally, we want to congratulate our President Eric Peltoniemi who will be receiving the Folk Alliance Region Midwest (FARM) Lifetime Award this fall! This honor is given to an individual who has made "a significant contribution to the folk community for at least 25 years." |
With over 40 years in the music industry and 30 spent here at Red House. He's a performing artist, songwriter, graphic designer, Grammy-winning producer and President of Red House, I'd say Eric is well qualified!
