Farmers Market – YoYo Mamas and the Papa Concert
August 19 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
The YoYo Mamas and the Papa, an all cello musical group hailing from Minnesota, will perform first on Saturday, August 19. Inspired by the great Cellist Yo Yo Ma, the band founded 16 years ago was started by a number of women who sought to create a unique musical experience using their cellos as the centerpiece of their music. The Papa was added in 2016.
The exclusive free concert will be held outside the Aitkin Butler Building (301 Minnesota Avenue North) during the Aitkin Farmers’ Market, which runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
On Saturdays, starting May 27th, Memorial Weekend, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the 2017 Farmers’ Market will return to Aitkin’s most recognizable historic landmark, the Butler Building (301 Minnesota Avenue North). The weekly event is held in the Butler Building parking lot every Saturday through Labor Day.
