Music in the Zoo Reveals 2015 Concert Schedule


Temperatures have hit 70 and it's officially outdoors season in Minnesota again. Along with the sunshine comes the announcement of the lineup for the popular Music in the Zoo concert series, this year highlighted by Salt-N-Pepa, Lucinda Williams, Buddy Guy, Keb Mo, and more.

The schedule includes a mix of plenty of favorites from the past as well as some first-timers, with the Okee Dokee Brothers, BoDeans, and Indigo Girls returning from last year, and first-time performers such as the Mavericks and Michael McDonald (in addition to hip-hop legends Salt-N-Pepa) set to grace the Apple Valley stage. Update (4/15/15): More shows have been added, including Kacey Musgraves and Cooder-White-Skaggs. Salt-N-Pepa has been moved to July 8.
