Since exploding onto the scene in 2005, Davina and the Vagabonds have grown from a down-and-dirty blues band into one of the most exciting acoustic ensembles on the international stage.
The high-energy quintet is set to bring its stellar live show and professional look to the Mabel Tainter Center for the Arts at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 17.
Known for their good old-fashioned hard work, Davina and the Vagabonds used to average more than 300 shows a year in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, and now enjoy an ambitious, full-time U.S. and international schedule. In recent years they have performed in 45 states, two Canadian provinces and 12 European countries.
Tickets are $25.

Judy Collins returns to the Mabel Tainter Center for the Arts (205 E. Main St., Menomonie) on Tuesday, May 22 at 7:30 p.m.
Collins has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism.
In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, her luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic 50-album body of work, and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for half a century.
Tickets are $50.
To purchase tickets, call 715-235-0001, ext. 100; online at www.mabeltainter.org; or visit the box office Tuesday-Friday, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. or one hour before the show.
