Ketzal Coatlicue pursues this spiritual, mental, and physical vocation with music from the sacred drum, conch shells, seeds and other instruments gifted by the natural environment. Ketzal Coatlicue’s cultural learning center is located in South Minneapolis. Corey Carlson and Severin Behnen lead the Blue Canvas Orchestra in an evening of songs from the quintessential pop rock group of the 60s - The Beatles. No funny hairdos or outfits, just musical virtuosity by members of Big Top’s house band, complete with string section, as they interpret their favorite Beatles songs. Sing along with your favorites such as “Yesterday,” “Let It Be,” “I Am the Walrus” and “The Long and Winding Road.” In 2014 the dynamic team of Severin Behnen and Corey Carlson put together our first Opry show which celebrated the best of the Grand Ole Opry from the 30s, 40s and 50s. Our next installment of great country and western music takes us from the mid-60s through the early 80s with music from Opry icons like Willie & Waylon, Dolly & Loretta, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Glen Campbell, Charley Pride and Tammy Wynette. This show features the Blue Canvas Orchestra with Corey Carlson and special guests Andy Dee, Randy Sabien, Joe Savage, Danielle Diamond, Emily Belanger and Lizzie Herriott.
