Join us for the eighth season of the 411 Concert Series
Pat Donohue and
The Cactus Blossoms
Pieta Brown opened the 2019-20 411 season in September, a day after the release of her newest record, Freeway. Recorded in just three days, Brown reflected on the record by saying “When you’ve got a pile of songs and only a few days and nights in a studio, you go into a hyper-focus. You lay all you’ve got on the line, and that’s where a lot of the energy in this album comes from.” The BBC called her a “self-styled poetess, folk goddess, and country waif,” and The Guild is thrilled to have hosted Pieta in our intimate theater.

The first concert in 2020 brought Jerry Kosak and Pat Donohue to the Guild stage. Both guitar masters shared music with Northfield audiences shortly after the new year. Audiences recognized Pat’s signature style after hearing music he played or wrote for almost 20 years on A Prairie Home Companion as part of the house band. Jerry’s music has hints of roots and blues, rock, classical, and jazz, allowing him to “develop his own unique voice as a player and composer.” An incredible night of great guitar music!

Having released their highly anticipated sophomore album, Easy Way, in the spring of 2019, The Cactus Blossoms return to Northfield with a new album and a following that continues to grow. Last seen at the Guild in the fall of 2018, The Cactus Blossoms have been featured in Twin Peaks: The Return and on The Current. This brother act is like a modern day Everly Brothers – don’t miss your chance to see them at Armory Square in the spring!
Saturday, March 14 at Armory Square
Katy Vernon Band closes out the 411 season in May at the Guild Theater. Growing up in London, she now resides in the Minneapolis/Saint Paul metro area. She is often referred to as a “ukulele songbird, singer of sad songs on a happy instrument.” Since she was last seen in Northfield, Katy has released a new album Suit of Hearts. Audiences will appreciate her dedication to expressing dreams and desires in music and seeing how music changes other people, supported by her band while on the road.
