You’re sure to find influences of Minnesota music’s founding fathers; from Bob Dylan to the Jayhawks.  Six Mile Grove honors its roots, but has also managed to forge its own sound and space on a stage without compromise.  In addition, their friendship, touring and recording with legendary Johnny Cash guitarist Bob Wootton, has lent even more distinctly to their “good all-American boy” sound and style.”

Six Mile Grove is rooted in the energy of Americana Rock and the simplicity of Classic Country music: all delivered with farm boy charm.  Come hear this fantastic band on Saturday night, October 14 for the first concert of the Guild's popular 411 Music Concert Series. The concert begins at 7:30 pm at the Northfield Arts Guild Theater, 411 Third Street West, Northfield.

Carleton Physics & Astronomy Professors Jay Tasson and Joel Weisberg will present a public talk on brand-new gravitational wave astronomy discoveries, Tuesday, October 17, at 7 PM in Carleton's Olin Hall Room 141.  The two speakers are themselves active in gravitational wave research. 

The morning before the talk, more information  will also be released to media nationwide.  At that point, scientists representing the LIGO and  Virgo gravitational wave detectors, and those representing  70 other observatories, will reveal new details and discoveries made in the ongoing search for gravitational waves
