West Bank Revival lineup and schedule

Headliner Papa John Kolstad

Headliner Papa John Kolstad

A wide range of over 40 different local musicians will take over the West Bank this weekend in a festival of folk jams. An epicenter for the roots movement in the Twin Cities, the West Bank has long been known as the stomping ground for some of the area's best songwriters and musicians. This weekend's West Bank Revival, hosted by the Front Porch Sitters, will celebrate the history of the neighborhood with performances at a variety of venues, and the newly opened West Bank Social Center will host storytelling and historic photo displays.

Acts are as far-reaching as headliners Papa John Kolstad and Willie Murphy, newer local acts like Bouncer Fighter and Chickadee Mountain Martyrs, and familiar singer-songwriters like Martin Devaney and Eddy Burke.

The cost of the festival is a mere $5 per day. See below for the complete schedule.
