Weekend watch: Musicians Mason Jennings and Caroline Smith


Minneapolis/ St. Paul may be the musical capital of the region, but the powers that be at the Minnesota Music Coalition want to make sure the good words are spread throughout the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

Caravan du Nord sets artists out in all directions to reach smaller towns that may not normally get many acts. Mason Jennings headlines the bill that comes to Historic Holmes Theatre in Detroit Lakes Friday night, but the real draw for locals will be the return of hometown singer Caroline Smith, left, accompanied by her band, the Goodnight Sleeps.

The show is funded, in part, by the Minnesota State Arts Board through the Legacy Amendment so tickets are all $5. Music starts at 7 p.m. with Hardwood Groove. (218) 844-7469.
