This weekend the south Minneapolis favorite Seward Co-op turned 40, and to celebrate, it threw a big party. Founded in 1972, Seward Co-op has been a staple in the Minneapolis Co-op scene. To mark the occasion, the co-op put together a gathering of local artists and food and beverage vendors in East River Flats Park.
In attendance were several local music acts to help ramp up the festivities, including a group of young fiddlers called Fiddles on Fire--kids from from 10 to 12 years old playing classic American, Irish, and Swedish folk tunes. Also in attendance were The Bunny Clogs, The Brass Messengers, Malamanya, and Willie Murphy, a 30-year veteran in the blues and R&B scene.
