Music in the Chapel

Join Lakewood for the return of our popular Music in the Chapel concert series!

After a two year hiatus, we are excited to bring this popular series back! The Music in the Chapel series showcases an eclectic range of performers and local musicians for musical performances that showcase the acoustical charms of this historic and unique architectural landmark, right in the heart of the city.

We’re kicking off this series with local artists David Huckfelt and Annie Humphrey for a collaborative performance in our historic halls.

Covid-19 Safety Protocol

At this time we have the following covid safety protocols in place for our Music in the Chapel series:

  • Proof of vaccination or a negative covid test within 72 hours before entering the building
  • Masks must be worn inside the building at all times

While we understand this may be inconvenient and may not be the policy at other venues, we have chosen to keep these policies in place due to the size and intimate nature of our venue. If you are not comfortable with these policies, we encourage you to join us for music and celebration at any of our outdoor seasonal celebrations throughout the year!

About David Huckfelt

David Huckfelt is a singer / lyricist / activist and founding frontman of Minneapolis indie-folk cult favorite band The Pines. His work with The Pines received record of the year accolades from Mojo & Q Magazine, and garnered praise for Huckfelt from David Fricke (Rolling Stone) as one of the finest songwriters of his generation. In 2012 he met American Indian Movement leader & poet John Trudell on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, and their subsequent collaboration resulted in the song “Time Dreams”, hailed by Democracy Now! and the last recording Trudell made before passing. Since then, Huckfelt has partnered with an impressive array of Native American artists and activists including Keith Secola, Quiltman, Winona LaDuke and novelist Louise Erdrich in the fight for social justice and protection for Mother Earth. In thousands of shows across the United States, Canada & overseas, Huckfelt’s grassroots following has grown from small-town opera houses, Midwestern barn concerts, and progressive benefit events to national tours and festival stages like Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Edmonton and Calgary Folk Fests, and the legendary First Avenue here in his beloved home of Minneapolis.

About Annie Humphrey

Growing up on the Leech Lake Indian Reservation in Northern Minnesota, Annie lived in a home filled with voices made of thunder and nothing could stop it. Her parents were brilliant people individually. Her father, a singer and musician and her mother an artist and poet. Together they made sadness. Each of her parents taught Annie the beautiful things they knew. They showed her that she carried their gifts in her hands too. This is how creating art and music came about for her. This is what saved her. This is how she lives now. Things my dad taught me: skin a deer, set net, clean fish, make maple syrup, harvest wild rice, play basketball, ride motorcycle, go without if you can’t afford it, play guitar. Things my mom taught me: draw, paint, sew, write, laugh, wonder, forgive. Annie has 4 children and 2 grandsons. She has a handsome, Indian, horseman husband. They inspire her spirit and her art.

The Historic Lakewood Memorial Chapel

This event will take place in the beautiful and historic Lakewood Memorial Chapel. This stunning building was built in 1910 by architect Harry Wild Jones, and is modeled after the Hagia Sofia in Istanbul. It is one of the only examples of Byzantine style chapels in the US, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Click here for more information on the Lakewood Memorial Chapel.

Signs will be posted directing you to the event location or click here for GPS navigation through Google Maps.

Bike parking is also available at a bike rack near the front gate.

Parking

Parking is available on any of the roads inside Lakewood’s gates unless otherwise noted with a no parking sign. Handicap parking will be available near the chapel entrance. Lakewood does not have an onsite parking lot – it is street parking only. This means you may have to park a short distance away and walk. We strongly encourage carpooling for this event. 

Bussing 

There is a bus that stops right outside of Lakewood’s gates.

Biking

There is also a nice ride station available on 34th/Hennepin, and 36th/Bryant. Lakewood only has one small bike rack.
