SnowVox Series Continues at Summit Brewing
Our new monthly concert series continues - featuring the best of Minnesota singer/songwriters! A twist on our previous NoVox series, SnowVox invites you to enjoy WITH-vocals music in a variety of different backgrounds and styles. Sponsored by Summit Brewing Company and taking place in their renovated Ratskeller, this free concert series will occur the second Thursday of the month from 6-8 pm.

February 13th's event features Kashimana - a musician, singer, songwriter, composer, producer, lyricist, guitarist and performing artist with a rich soulful blues voice that soars through her original compositions. The name Kashimana means 'that's her heart' and her catchy and compelling songs show you where her heart beats. Kashimana often draws inspiration from her experiences growing up in Nigeria, Kenya, traveling through Africa, Europe and finally settling in the United States. Along with her distinctive voice, Kashimana’s stage presence pulls you in and leaves you in a warm and fuzzy thrall that’s hard to shake.
