Luke LeBlanc and Thomas Sticha, two emerging talents from Minneapolis-St. Paul, are set to captivate audiences across rural Minnesota with their unique blend of folk, pop, and country sounds. Dubbed "The Midwestern Mini-Tour," the series of three concerts promises an inviting musical journey coupled with a backdrop of partnerships with local arts and community development centered non-profits.

The tour kicks off on June 6 with a free Music in the Park show at Roosevelt Park in Benson, MN at 5:30 pm, in partnership with the City of Benson and Community and Economic Development Associates (CEDA). CEDA, a non-profit organization fostering strategic development in rural communities, adds a meaningful layer to the evening's festivities.

On June 7, the duo will grace the Little Theatre Auditorium in New London, MN at 7:00 pm. The auditorium, a bastion for diverse storytelling and cultural exchange, aligns perfectly with LeBlanc and Sticha's ethos of connecting through music. Their performance will be part of a Pay What You Wish model, ensuring accessibility to all.

Wrapping up the tour on June 8 is a not-to-be-missed show at Madison Mercantile in Madison, MN at 6:30 pm. This multifaceted venue, nestled in the heart of Madison, serves as a nexus for community, art, and innovation, embodying the spirit of collaboration and creativity that defines the region.

Luke LeBlanc, renowned for his dynamic and versatile original performances, seamlessly blends rootsy folk and pop, offering solace in an unstable world. Meanwhile, Thomas Sticha's debut Country single, "Then It’s Gone," heralds the emergence of a refreshing voice in the genre while echoing the charm of classic country-folk legends.

"This will be my second time playing these venues and I’m thrilled to see the folks I met last time (and the friends they said they’d bring next time!)" says LeBlanc. Fresh off his newest album, Places, he toured the region last November with his trio featuring a bassist/backup vocalist and pedal steel guitarist.


Luke LeBlanc is a Minneapolis-based singer-songwriter who delivers dynamic and versatile original performances that feature a warm, organic merging of rootsy folk and pop. As noted by The Current, LeBlanc’s music is “so delicate, understated, and careful in its construction that you forget it’s taking apart how to live in such an unstable world while giving solace and a place for rest.” Luke’s music has received critical acclaim from numerous music magazines, including Bluegrass Situation, Americana Highways, and Glide Magazine, and he has shared the stage with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Charlie Parr, and Grammy-Nominee Amythyst Kiah. His newest record, Places, was produced by Erik Koskinen and is his debut album for Real Phonic Records. He has been invited by 89.3 The Current for several in-studio performances.


Thomas Sticha is a Country & Folk singer-songwriter from Saint Paul, Minnesota. His debut Country single, “Then It’s Gone,” released in January 2024. This good, old-fashioned country tune marks the beginning of the avalanche for Thomas’ recorded music in the years ahead. The Midwest music blog Adventures in Americana called Thomas’ full-band set “thoroughly charming” and “an appealing (blend of) country/folk.”

With heavy influence from Classic Country, Bluegrass, and Folk, his style of music is for fans of Tyler Childers, John Prine, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Alan Jackson, Zach Bryan, and more.
