Lowdown Americana Music at Minnesota State University, Mankato

Duo to perform at Halling Recital Hall.

Minnesota State University, Mankato Music Department News Release, 8-28-2012

MANKATO, Minn. – Acoustic guitarists Bob Bingham and Gordon Thorne will perform Thursday, September 6 at 7:30 p.m. in the Elias J. Halling Recital Hall of the Performing Arts Center, 320 Maywood Ave.

Former Lamont Cranston Band guitarist Bob Bingham has teamed up with Northwoods fingerstyle wizard Gordon Thorne to form what the Minneapolis Star Tribune hails as, "one of the best ad hoc acoustic duos in the country - a double shot of fingerstyle blues at it's finest.”

Combining masterful guitar work with soulful vocals and a comfortable command of the stage, Bingham and Thorne performances are a raucous romp through an American musical landscape inspired by country bluesers, early jazzers, old-time shouters, and rock n' rollers.

Concert admission is $12; $11 for students with a valid MavCard. Discount tickets are available online for University students. Advance purchase is strongly encouraged. Those who wish to purchase tickets online should go to For more information, call the PerformanceSeries office, (507) 389-5549.
