Candace Simar

Candace Simar is a Pequot Lakes, Minnesota author with a passion for her Scandinavian heritage and a deep love of history. Candace grew up dreaming how life might have been for her family in the early days of Minnesota settlement. She became concerned when her college-aged children did not know this history, and took her son’s challenge to “write a book.”

Her historical novels include: SHELTERBELTS 2015,a real wooden oxcart receiving awards from both the Midwest Book Awards and the Willa Literary Awards in Historical Fiction; Spur Award Winning ABERCROMBIE TRAIL SERIES ( Abercrombie Trail 2009, Pomme de Terre 2010, Birdie 2011, and Blooming Prairie 2012).

Minneapolis Guitar Quartet

One of the very few guitar ensembles performing the majority of its repertoire from memory, the MGQ presents original works and commissions as well as its own brilliant arrangements of music by such composers as Ginastera, Piazzolla, Debussy, and the Finnish folk-based music of Maria Kalaniemi. New arrangements showcase music by Jazz pianist Hiromi, Prince’s Purple Rain, and The Easy Beats’ Friday on My Mind. These ventures represent the quartet’s intention to bring its audiences distinctive and imaginative experiences.

The MGQ has performed in recital throughout major U.S. cities, and at Princeton University, the National Arts Center (Mexico City), Round Top International Guitar Festival, and at the Guitar Foundation of America Festival.

Music of Bach, Hiromi, Radovanlija, Krouse & Prince
