12th Annual Texasota Independence Jam
July 7 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm$10 – $12
The 12th annual Texasota Independence Jam takes place Saturday July 7, 2018 at Island Lake Park Pavilion, located at 7204 Rice Lake Road. After a decade as a private event amongst friends and family, we are excited to announce that this year’s concert will be open to the public for the first time.
As the name implies, the line up features artists that have roots in both Minnesota and Texas. Sharing a home on the stage definitely takes on a new meaning as Duluth-clan, the Carlson Family and Friends, open the evening. St. Paul based but Duluth raised folk-rock five piece Emily Haavik & the 35s follow, fittingly taking their name from the shared interstate of Minnesota and Texas. Newly formed Austin based group The Hill Country Hustlers have honed their chops as a premier backing band in Central Texas. In addition to bringing a dancehall-ready set lakeside, they will also be hanging onstage to lend their talents throughout the show. With a pair of headliners to be reckoned with, Texan Noel McKay and fellow critically acclaimed country-folk songwriter Brennen Leigh will grace the stage, performing both on their own and as a duo. McKay and Minnesota-bred Leigh are frequent collaborators and tour mates that promise a night full of songwriting bliss. Ending the night, Duluth’s rock ’n country soul project Steven James and The Revival will lead into a closing group jam that is sure to be full of surprises. The Texasota Independence Jam will begin at 6pm and end around 11pm.
The Texasota Independence Jam is open to all ages, with 12 and under free. Tickets can be purchased for $15 at the festival or in advance for $10 at www.texasotajam.com. VIP packages are also available for $30.
Texasota Independence Jam – Started in 2003 as a Fourth of July party on Island Lake for friends and family, the Texasota Independence Jam soon became a community event spread by word of mouth. As the years passed, residents from all around the lake would come and “crash” the party. Always an amazing celebration with a reunion- like atmosphere, both headliners and family members are welcomed up on stage to perform.
