ZUMBROTA — Wylie and the Wild West will play "cowboy music" at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 29, at the State Theatre. Wylie Gustafson, a Montana native, is a singer/songwriter who says he lives the songs he writes. With three decades of writing, recording and performing under his belt, he has become what some critics call one of the few authentic voices of the West. His music has roots in a hearty dose of trail dust and horse hair.
Control and chaos. Order and impulse. The place where opposites collide is explored in "Wilderness," a new dance composition by Brian Brooks to be performed at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 28, at the Sheldon Theatre. An award-winning choreographer who has toured worldwide, Brooks is known for his ability to "shatter conventional notions of the human capacity for strength and endurance," according to Dance Magazine. "Wilderness" continues to challenge traditional limits. But it does more.
