Dakota Blonde Concert

Saturday, September 21, 7pm
Dakota Blonde is one of the most unique acoustic sounds around. Their combination of original tunes and carefully selected covers, along with their endearing stage presence and humor is out of this world! Their musical sound is hard to classify, but best put, they are acoustic folk, part bluegrass, part acoustic rock, part singer/songwriter, and sometimes even Celtic. A unique blend of heart, authenticity and contagious spirit! Their acoustic sound is like no other, with such tightly blended harmonies that you would swear they were born to sing together. We're thrilled to have them return to the Heritage Center!
Reservations highly recommended.
