Elvis Costello & the Imposters
In the past year Elvis Costello has collaborated with a number of artists ranging from Fall Out Boy to Jenny Lewis, but in taking some time for himself, the legendary singer-songwriter recently released a collection of new songs, Secret, Profane & Sugarcane. The roots-based album sways between folk and country influences, the entire recording sounding perfect for a midsummer's day cookout. Fitting, then, that Costello will be performing at this year's Taste of Minnesota festival with his long-established backing band the Imposters. Now in its 26th year, the Taste is the largest music and food festival in the state, hosting 30-some food vendors and just as many musical acts over the course of four days. Among those performing will be a mixed bag of artists including Staind, Judas Priest, and Bret Michaels—but none is more distinguished than Costello, who has more than 30 studio albums to his credit.
