The Minnesota Beatle Project is back for its third installment, summoning the talents of fifteen local musicians including the Anoka Middle School for the Arts. It's not only a project of Beatles covers. In addition, 100% of the net proceeds from its sales will be donated to Minnesota public schools to help bolster music and arts education programs. The first two volumes alone impacted over 15,000 kids across 30 schools in the state.
The album features the usual Minnesota mainstays such as Cloud Cult, Tapes 'n Tapes, and Solid Gold, but also employs the help of rising stars like Red Pens, The Arms Akimbo, and Dark Dark Dark.
