The land of 10,000 lakes is no stranger to musical fame. Bob Dylan and Prince have gone down in history as two of the most successful recording artists of all time. It’s easy to understand why. They both had signature, instantly identifiable styles.

They deserve all the praise that they get. However, there are several other incredible bands and artists in Minnesota that deserve just as much praise, but end up living in the shadow of Minnesota’s two titans.

The St. Cloud area in particular has a thriving artistic culture, and one of the most famous local venues is the one and only - Red Carpet. Today we’re going to be taking a look at some of the upcoming concerts at The Red Carpet from local artists from around the area.
