Scott Jasmin – Small Town Songs

March 9 – 7:30 p.m. ($15)
“Small Town Songs” is a collection of original Americana music by singer, songwriter and musician, Scott Jasmin. A folksy blend of styles, with hints of vintage pop, rock and even jazz, “Small Town Songs” invokes not only scenes from his childhood in Austin, Minnesota, but its music as well. The youngest of four boys, Jasmin enjoyed the music of the 80s as part of his teen years. But he also – almost by osmosis – has found 70s music “in my head and in my heart,” thanks to his older brothers, who introduced him to the likes of The Eagles, Poco and America. Three of his songs – “Small Town Life,” “Small Town Summer Nights,” and “Like Snow From Above,” will be offered on a sampler for sale at the show on Saturday. He hopes to record his entire album soon. Jasmin – a nurse – also operates his home-based Autumn Records. He is already thinking about a second volume of “Small Town Songs.”

 

Ole and Lena Live

March 15 & 16 – 7 p.m. ($15)
Using the small southeastern Minnesota town of Potsdam as Ole and Lena’s hometown, Mike and Julie Bateson bring the entire population of Potsdam, Minnesota – not to mention the crazy extended Gustafson family – to life. The theme by which Ole and Lena and the Batesons bring their plays to audiences is to have the audience explore the joys of life, love, family. This musical comedy’s title is “Ole Runs for Office.” It’s time again when Muskrat Lodge 3412 elects officers and Ole has decided to throw his hat in the ring and run against longtime nemesis, Knut Knutson. Ole and Sven have already decided that they need to put together a sneaky, tough and no-holds-barred campaign if Ole is every going to have a chance of winning. Lena says Ole spends far too much time at that smelly, old lodge already, and things this is one of the most hair-brained ideas that Ole has ever had. Will Lena talk Ole out of the political limelight or cave in to the glamour of being “first lady of the lodge?” Can Ole and Sven make it through the election without causing an international Muskrat lodge investigation looking into dirty campaign tricks? Be a part of all of the craziness when you, the audience, determines the outcome in this laugh riot!
