Galactic Cowboys coming to Lighthouse

Published 10:54am Thursday, February 21, 2013

The Galactic Cowboy Orchestra once again will rock the Lighthouse Event Center in Albert Lea.

The bluegrass and jazz-inspired rock group is working on a new CD, so crowds likely will hear some new music. The four-member instrumental group combines elements of jazz, blues, rock and world music elements and have dubbed themselves “newgrass art-rock.”

The show will start at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Lighthouse, which is at 621 Marshall St. Tickets are $15 in advance, available at Marshall Street Music, Hy-Vee and Stadheim Jewelers in Albert Lea and at Coffee House on Main in Austin, and are $20 at the door.
