Phil Berbig is a favorite throughout Minnesota. He has a unique style blending a wide variety of popular songs arranged for a solo guitar player/singer and an occasional harmonica. Having picked up a guitar for the first time in 25 years when he was in his mid-40’s he realized he had always been in love the art of performing music in front of a crowd. For the last 15 years he has been a staple at wineries, breweries, wine bars, events and just about any other venue you can think of. His mix of music includes hit songs by people like Johnny Cash and Cold Play, The Beatles and The Plain White T’s, The Rolling Stones and Chuck Berry. His original songs though are his favorite to play. Phil finds a way to use simple language to tell stories that resonate with his audience. Having been through so many of life's ups and downs, his experience comes through in his music. Some songs are touching, some are sad and some very funny. Phil is personable, entertaining and just plain, a lot of fun. His stories mixed with his style of music make an evening out into an event.
Novvaa is the solo songwriting project of Victoria Malawey, a musician based in St. Paul, Minnesota. Driven by the belief we need more beauty, art, and compassion in the world—now more than ever—Novvaa offers songs of solace, remorse, vulnerability, and hope. Harmonically driven and sung from the heart, Novvaa’s sounds and words are intended to provide catharsis from the madness within and surrounding us.
Mitchell Harding is a member of the Minneapolis-based band End of November, an acoustic/pop trio that performs songs that feature effervescent melodies intertwined with deep, relatable lyrics. The band prides themselves in being the kind of artists people can listen to again and again.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the East Central Regional Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
