See the Hot Spot Music calendar for details on our fourth season - sure to be the best one yet! Thanks to strong support from our individual donors, all jam sessions will be held at the Grand Event Center which promises excellent sightlines, circulation and audibility. This year, we've also formally partnered with the Northfield Arts Guild to receive a Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage grant from the Southeast Minnesota Arts Council (SEMAC).
Our series of four open, community jam sessions will be led by local greats including violinist Mike Hildebrandt and multi-instrumentalist Mark Kreitzer. We're welcoming back old friends like guitarist Robert Bell and broadening the pool of featured instruments with clarinetist, Tony Balluff, and mando / vocal / percussion combo Sims and Maggie Delaney-Potthoff from Madison-based Harmonious Wail This year's final jam session and grand finale concert will feature quintessential jazz guitarist Sam Miltich (Grand Rapids, MN) and world-renown concert violinist Tim Kliphuis (Amsterdam, NL).
