Caravan Du Nord

Caravan Du Nord - A Traveling Showcase of MN Music

The Caravan du Nord an ongoing project of The Minnesota Music Coalition. The tour creates partnerships between independent musicians (who are not traditionally viewed as members of the fine arts community) and presenters who are excited to engage new audiences with the artists. At the same time the program includes education for developing artists with workshops that fit the needs for each town.

The 2013 Caravan Du Nord tour is sponsored by 89.3 The Current and Essential Sessions Studios and made possible in part by Summit Brewery and Clockwork Active Media Systems.
