Arts on Superior will feature the eclectic sounds of Intemperate Hearts tonight as part of the Fridays in the Park concert series at Thomas Owens Park in Two Harbors.
The group is made up of local musicians Tom Broadbent, Nancy MacGibbon, and Al Anderson. They were a big hit last year with their strong original songs and classy covers. The music begins at 7 p.m. in the historic bandshell at the park on Waterfront Drive and Third Avenue.
In case of rain, the concert will be played across the street at United Church on Third Avenue.
Intemperate Hearts brings together three talents who write original songs and use a mix of instruments to keep audiences enthralled. The chemistry between the three players and the on-stage banter make for an entertaining evening.
Broadbent (keyboard and vocals) has been writing music most of his life, including several musicals. One of Tom’s musicals, “Pickin’ the Bones of Grandpa Jones,” brought the three musicians together in 2001. Tom’s newest adult musical, “Deal, Dammit!” has had staged readings in Minneapolis. Last year Tom published “Henrietta Stays Out All Night,” a children’s book including a CD of three songs from his popular children’s musical of the same name.
MacGibbon (vocals, piano, drums, and oboe) is one of the finest vocal interpreters in the area. Whether doing covers or her own original songs, her singing draws the audience into a character’s world. As a music educator, Nancy has conducted award-winning choral groups, produced student talent shows, and hosted school residencies for her students. Nancy served as the choral music teacher in Silver Bay and now conducts the choirs at Two Harbors High School.
Anderson (trombone, ukulele, and vocals) conducts the Two Harbors City Band. In 2009, he founded the Two Harbors Ukulele Group (T.H.U.G.), which has rapidly attained popularity and introduced many to the romance of the instrument.
