The Big Dixie Swingers
The Big Dixie Swingers

Wunderbar Eatery & Glampground | Grand Marais MN

The New Orleans-based band The Big Dixie Swingers is committed to reviving the music of America’s rural radio stations and stages. Their sound blends old time country and pre-war era pop, spinning it back out as western swing-style dance band numbers. The group has taken this sound up and down the East Coast and across the Midwest, winning the MBOTMA (Minnesota Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Association) Americana-Roots Band Contest at last year’s Minnesota State Fair. It’s a style recognizable as the sound of America decades ago, yet it’s timeless enough to still be heard on the streets of New Orleans today.

There will be a dance floor at this event! (Seating also available.)
