"The Brothers Burn Mountain" will play eclectic blues and rock ’n roll for the 2nd Street Stage summer concert series at 6 p.m. Thursday, July 14. They are a soulful, energetic, eclectic duo of brothers, Ryan and Jesse Dermody from Duluth. They’ve been playing music together for more than 16 years and have released eight full-length albums of original music. Though difficult to put their sound into words, some have called it avant-garde blues rock, though basically it is just good-ol’ rock ’n roll with a personal and strange twist of bluesy tastes. Ryan sings and plays guitar, percussions and bass guitar; Jesse plays drums and is the lyricist/poet.
Celebrate summer Thursday evenings with free music, a beer garden and family activities on 2nd Street, between Main and Hwy. 71. Bring your own chairs. Organized by the Park Rapids Downtown Business Association, 2nd Street Stage will be held every Thursday through August 18. To see the complete summer line-up, go to
