July 21, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Craig Paquette is a guitarist, singer, songwriter as well as a founding and current member of the Minneapolis based band Thunderheads with whom he has performed well over 1000 shows during the past 30 + years. Craig’s debut solo album, “Won’t Last Forever” was recorded at Sparta Sound Studio with musicians including Rich Mattson, Steve Blexrud, Keely Lane, Al Oikari, Colleen Martin Oake, Jillian Rae, Terry Isachsen and Bruce Paquette. It draws from Craig’s many musical influences including Rock, Country and Blues. Craig’s second solo album, “Back Together” is expected to be released in the summer of 2022. Again, recorded at Sparta sound with most of the same musicians that played on “Won’t Last Forever”, it includes songs with an eye on the past but also the times we have been living and experiencing together and alone for the past two years.
