Happy Harry’s RibFest announced its musical lineup for the annual Fargodome event and it promises something tangy and something twangy for fans of barbecue and live music. Singer/songwriting legend Steve Earle kicks things off on June 2, bringing his mix of country (“Guitar Town”), rock (“Copperhead Road”) and folk (“Galway Girl”) to the main stage.
Fargo-based events promoter Jade Presents announced the first round of the summer concert lineup at Bluestem. Country singer Billy Currington plays the amphitheater on June 10.

WEST FARGO -- In 2012, in the middle of her Broadway run in “Follies,” actress Jan Maxwell was hit by a van. She was treated at the scene but refused to go to the hospital. “I’ve got to get back to the theater,” she recalled telling the paramedics. “I’ve got a show tonight.”
FARGO—Wynonna Judd has always had a strong voice. From the 1984 debut with her mother Naomi as The Judds, to her solo career, which started in 1992, the singer has sung her way to the top of the charts 20 times and five Grammy wins. Wynonna (she's earned first-name-only-artist status) brings her new band, The Big Noise to Scheels Arena in Fargo Wednesday night, Dec. 13, for her Christmas show. The singer agreed to a conference call interview in late November with a handful of journalists around the country each getting to ask one question.
FARGO—An opera centered around an 1899 gala may sound a bit stuffy, but the Fargo Moorhead Opera's performance of "Die Fledermaus" takes the stuffing out of the upper class and opera itself. The season-opening production plays for—and delivers—laughs in a thoroughly enjoyable staging at North Dakota State University's Festival Concert Hall.
DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Superstar singer Carrie Underwood has been announced as the third and final headliner of next summer's country music festival, WE Fest, in Detroit Lakes. Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line had already been announced. The remainder of the bill has not been revealed.

MOORHEAD—About once a month, mostly on a weeknight, Matt Aakre loads up an acoustic guitar and drives across town to some small bar or brewery to play a solo acoustic set as he did last Thursday night at Junkyard Brewing Company in Moorhead. "I like them," the 36-year-old singer-guitarist says of the intimate rooms. "People tend to listen and be receptive."
FARGO -- Pop music star Ed Sheeran will return to the Fargodome, but fans will have to wait a year to hear him “Sing.” He’ll play the Fargodome on Oct. 17, 2018. The Fargodome tweeted the concert announcement around 4:45 p.m., Friday, after tweet-teasing “a huge concert announcement” earlier in the day. The tweeted announcement included a 360-degree rotating image of the singer wearing a North Dakota State University Bison T-shirt with the number 18 on it, the year of his tour.
