Eight Minnesota cities flung to the far corners of the state will host the second-annual Caravan du Nord shows this fall. Last fall, Low, Trampled by Turtles, members of Doomtree, Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles, Heiruspecs, and many more were among the acts visiting smaller communities outside the Twin Cities to promote the arts and put on workshops.
This year, the lineup -- assembled by the Minnesota Music Coalition and 89.3 the Current -- includes Mason Jennings, the 4onthefloor, Chastity Brown, Pert Near Sandstone, Haley Bonar, and several other acts who get ample, deserved attention in the local sphere. Between September 22, and November 17, there will be eight events in all. Check out the full schedule below. Caravan du Nord 2012 schedule
