Kevin Kling and Victor Zupanc: Your Ultimate Troubadours
Jun 3 | 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Summer Stories and Songs
Summer in Minnesota, the season when hot dish gives way to salads and ‘exposed flesh’ goes back to being skin. As a kid on the last day of school we were barefoot and out the door, school clothes became play clothes and teachers went back to…wherever teachers come from. There was bar-b-que, swimming lessons, family vacations, camping, riding bikes, carnivals. Then, as now, our state really knew how to do summer. Please join Kevin Kling and Victor Zupanc for an entertaining evening of stories and songs celebrating summer in Minnesota.
Kevin Kling is from Minneapolis, Minnesota where he lives on purpose–“when you freeze paradise it lasts a little longer”. He has performed his stories in libraries, school gymnasiums, The Kennedy Center, Off-Broadway, the Guthrie and storytelling festivals around the US, including the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, TN. His international tours include Australia, Europe and Thailand. He has been a commentator for National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered” and PBS/TPT’s “Almanac”.
