Trevor McSpadden and Mary Cutrufello

Saturday, November 12th at 7:30 pm

Members: $20, Non-members: $25, Students: $15

Trevor McSpadden and Mary Cutrufello have walked wildly different musical paths. But both have been guided by their time honky-tonking in Texas in the early 1990s. Trevor was first enthralled by music as a kid on the dance floor, mystified by a good band keeping the two-steppers spinning. Mary was a guitar-slinging, fire-spitting bandleader, catapulted to nationwide acclaim. Serendipitously, their two paths have converged in St. Paul, where they make a potent combo of roots rock and country crooning. They also have Dan on bass guitar and Aaron on the drums!
