Songwriter Series // John Mark Nelson
The Current’s Songwriter Series is back! Every Monday and Wednesday night Papa Charlie’s transforms into a listening room showcasing the Midwest’s most talented songwriters in a theater-like setting. The intimate room coupled with its impeccable sound allows the audience to immerse into the stories and craft of the song. Whether you’re in Lutsen skiing for an extended weekend or a local inhabitant, these free intimate acoustic performances are a must every Monday and Wednesday during the ski season.
John Mark Nelson
John Mark Nelson is an acclaimed singer/songwriter from Minneapolis-Saint Paul. Nelson sings with a slow-smoked croon that belies his age and fills his lyrics with sharp, detailed observations of life and love in the Midwest. Though he has racked up an impressive list of accolades, Nelson is still the undisputed captain of his ship, steering his crew between intimate folk ballads and peppy, woodsy rave-ups with ease.
Please Note: In an effort to create the listening room environment, we ask all guests in the main room to limit conversation during the performance. Guests looking for casual dining and conversation may be seated in the adjoining Mountain View Grill.
