The University of Iowa


Hancher favorite Danú invites you and yours to celebrate the holidays the Irish way with traditional music performed by a joyous, spirit-lifting band. Accented with Irish dance, this concert is the perfect gift to delight your entire family.

Susan Werner

Reared on the family farm in Eastern Iowa, Susan Werner knows a thing or two about rural life, food production, and the divide between the city and the country. She’ll sing songs from her "Hayseed" record.

Hoba Hoba Spirit

Hoba Hoba Spirit calls its fusion music “Hayha,” but you might call it “Moroccan-roll.” Blending rock, reggae, and Gnawa (African Islamic spiritual songs), the band sings in the Arabic dialect Darija, French, and English.

Al Jarreau

The legendary UI alum returns! His degree may be in vocational rehabilitation, but he’s a world-wide vocal sensation—an undisputed master of jazz, blues, pop and soul.
