Paul Metsa, legendary musician and songwriter, brings his one man show called Blackie and Paul- A Dog and His Man-and the Meaning of Life to our stage. Paul’s Iron Range upbringing is reflected in his songwriting. MN Law and Politics described him: “Like the Iron Range itself-and Dylan for that matter-Metsa is a hodge-podge of people, a melting pot of different characters and performers. He’s a folk singer, a blues singer, a guitarist, a social activist, a Finn, a story-teller, a comedian, a philosopher, a conspiracy theorist and a lounge lizard.” Based in Minneapolis since 1978, Paul is the winner of seven Minnesota Music Awards. He’s also an advocate for the adoption of pets and will be donating a portion of this show’s proceeds to the Dog Days of Stockholm organization.
