Three instruments and the musicians who play them. That's all you really need to stage an evening of fun with the George Maurer Trio. The George Maurer Trio knows how to jazz up a small space with a big sound - or a not-so-big sound, if that's what the occasion calls for. These experienced musicians are versatile, adaptable and utterly unflappable. The trio adds a bit of class to any venue and puts their jazz-infused touch on virtually every musical style, with George's piano leading the way.

They're at their best covering American swing and pop but are happy to have their way with everything from Gershwin to the Beatles. Adept at making themselves comfortable in unique performance settings, they have gigged on the swaying decks of riverboats and in steamy park band shells, held down big concert halls and tucked themselves into ballroom corners at wedding receptions. Regardless, they'll perform with ease, style and smiles.

Since forming in northeast Minneapolis in 2006, The High 48s have been making music that combines the soulful sound of classic bluegrass with a modern attitude.

They’re a band with one foot in tradition and the other in the world of music today,  and one of the very few who can find an overlooked bluegrass classic in a song by M. Ward or the Clash then throw down hard on a standard by Bill Monroe.

The High 48s are also a band of songwriters. Here, too, they take a modern approach, heeding the well-worn advice to writers: write what you know. Their songs ring true to their lives as northern city-folk rather than an imagined “sweet, sunny south” of coal mines and dark hollers.

In addition to keeping up a busy performing schedule, the High 48s are passionate about music education and in demand as instructors, teaching one-on-one, online and in workshops and jam camps around the country, including their now twice-yearly bluegrass jam camp for kids, Grass Seeds Academy.

The band takes its name from railroad slang for the boxcars originally used to transport troops on the front lines in WWI that could carry 40 soldiers or 8 horses, and were later used in the US on fast-moving “hot shot” freight trains by train-hoppers looking for work during the Great Depression.
