10th Annual High 48s Bluegrass Brunch Returns to the Aster Cafe in 2022!

The High 48s Bluegrass Brunch Returns to the Aster Cafe in 2022

We are very excited to announce that our 10th annual winter Bluegrass Brunch series will be returning to the stage at the Aster Cafe in Minneapolis every Saturday in January and February* from 11am-1pm starting on New Year’s Day 2022.

As some of you may remember, our very last show before the pandemic began was February 29th, 2020, the final bluegrass brunch of the 2020 season. Now, two years later, after a successful online brunch series last winter, we are excited to once again have the opportunity to play these brunches live.

The Bluegrass Brunch is a FREE event but seating is limited so advance reservations** are recommended and can be made online at:

The Aster is located in St. Anthony Main overlooking the Mississippi river and downtown Minneapolis at:

125 SE Main St.
Minneapolis, MN

PRO TIP: you can stay warm and out of the elements by parking in the St. Anthony Falls Ramp and taking the underground tunnel to the Aster. The ramp is located at 201 2nd St SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414.

To learn more about the Aster and check out their menu visit:

We really look forward to being back at the Aster and seeing your smiling faces!

* We will be out of town Feb 12th and will feature a guest band TBA

** It appears that the online system only allows you to reserve the January dates at the moment. They will likely open up the Feb. dates as we get closer.

One Hundred Million Years (M. Ward Cover)

We’re huge fans of M. Ward‘s songwriting and think this number makes an awesome bluegrass song—take a listen and let us know what you think!

This track is featured on our new live album “Wham! Bam! Thank You Braham!” — recorded live at the Wiese Auditorium in Braham, MN in Nov. of 2018 and is now available everywhere fine bluegrass is streamed and sold, CLICK HERE to start listening!
