Even though the event is free, pre-registration is encouraged so that we can extend our highest level of hospitality. Registration will open in May.
Like the great songwriting duos of yesteryear, Louis & Dan bring comedy and smarts to music for today’s families. Best friends, neighbors, and college professors (Louis teaches musicology at St. Olaf College, Dan teaches philosophy at Carleton College), they go together like Tacos and Tuesdays. Louis & Dan blend unique musical talents and clever word play to create deeply authentic and entertaining music. Their whimsical perspectives carry a dash of nostalgia, resulting in music that speaks to curious kids and discerning grown-ups alike. With their one of a kind Invisible Band backing them up, Louis & Dan’s inimitable style of humor, seriousness, and musical sophistication delivers songs you’ll be humming all day.
