New Year’s Eve for Grown-ups with Dan Chouinard & Prudence Johnson  | Saturday, December 31 at 7:00 p.m.

$25 in advance | $30 at the door


dan-chouinardRenowned pianist, accordionist, storyteller, and master of ceremonies, Dan Chouinard, along with standout jazz chanteuse Prudence Johnson, will usher in 2017 at WideSpot. Be wowed by the festive blend of stories, wit, and intoxicating music. Don’t miss this classic — and classy — evening for grownups, complete with hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar.

About Dan: As a writer and host he’s often asked to create special live programs for Minnesota Public Radio, the MN Historical Society, the Rose Ensemble and others. His show Civil War Homecoming played at the Fitzgerald Theater was broadcast on MPR, and televised on Twin Cities Public Television. Last year his show Steerage Song was on tour throughout Minnesota, a show co-authored with Peter Rothstein about the Ellis Island era of immigration to the US, depicted in folk songs, newspaper clippings and Tin Pan Alley tunes. In 2014 his show Cafe Europa was broadcast statewide, about bicycling with an accordion from Naples to Normandy in search of Minnesota WWII stories.

About Prudence: Prudence Johnson has recorded numerous albums. Among her themed projects include music by George Gershwin, recorded with Dan Chouinard.  Her screen credits include the movies “A Prairie Home Companion” and Robert Redford’s “A River Runs Through It.” And  Johnson isn’t new to WideSpot either, having performed on stage with friend and fellow Twin Cities-based musician Dan Chouinard in 2014 and with Rio Nido in October, 2016. Guess we just can’t get enough of her!
