Beer in hand, music lover Laura Horner of St. Paul surveyed the scene Monday night at Canterbury Park. She was evaluating a new outdoor concert site at the Shakopee horse racetrack, an alternative to the Minnesota Zoo‘s longstanding Music in the Zoo series.
“The zoo is much more intimate, and the sound is better there,” she said. “But we’re happy to be back. Any [live] music is good music.”
Music at Canterbury Park kicked off Monday with Old Crow Medicine Show, a veteran Grammy-winning band that is equal parts bluegrass, country and folk — and wholly entertaining.
